There are other factors you need to take into consideration such as insurance bands, MPG and road tax to name a few, but today we are going to show you what we think are the best first cars you can buy today:
1) Toyota Aygo
The Toyota Aygo, along with the Citroen C1 and the Peugeot 108, are very cheap cars to buy and cheap to run. Economical, spacious and surprisingly practical, the car itself also comes with some perks including ABS and 4 airbags for safety and also a CD player that has an aux plug so you can connect your phone or MP3 player and play your own music instead. Toyota have been lauded with their design of the car and has won some awards including the iF Product Design Award in 2006.
2) Volkswagen Up!
The Volkswagen Up! we feel here at Exchange and Mart / S1 Cars to be the true successor to one of their best selling cars of yesteryear – the Lupo. The Up! is cheap to run, comes with excellent fuel economy and is excellent to drive whether in the city or on the motorway. The car also takes some cues from the Lupo such as small but spacious, foldable back seats so you can have a bigger boot, and a simplistic DAB /CD/MP3 player so you can listen to Radio 1 or even use the aux port to listen to your tunes on Spotify whilst driving!
3) Hyundai i10
The Hyundai i10 (the ones built since 2013) has definitely seen a massive improvement over its predecessor but also a potential first car candidate against their supermini and city car rivals. Here at Exchange and Mart / S1Cars, we feel that the i10 is excellent when it comes to price, engines and the style of the car. The car is very economical and the quality of the interior, from the seats to steering wheel to the boot, is excellent for a great little car.
4) Renault Twingo
The Renault Twingo is a great car to drive, packing a lot of oomph in style and is extremely fun to drive, you are guaranteed to have a big wide smile at any corner you throw at this car. The unique thing about this city car unlike others is that this is a rear wheel drive car and the front wheels turns to almost 90 degrees, which will be extremely handy in tight situations and perfect for city life. The interior of the Twingo isn’t that bad too – simple, effective, full of character!
5) Fiat 500
If you are looking for a car that is very chic and economical then the Fiat 500 is for you. Ever since the relaunch of this car, Fiat has sold over 1.5m cars and has consistently been one of the best cars you can buy today. There are lots of customisation you can do to the car, both interior and exterior, plenty of colours to choose from and options to play with so that no one Fiat 500 will be the same. The 500 has also a great selection of economical engines starting off on its revolutionary TwinAir engine.
