Best Car for New Drivers

Are you a new driver looking for the best first car?

Your first car as a new driver! It’s one of those firsts you will remember forever. However, there’s an awful lot to consider when you’re choosing your first car. Naturally, it’s got to be a trendy and beautiful car, but you also need to be able to afford the car in the first place, consider the insurance premium, servicing cost and fuel economy.


So with this in mind I have selected two of the best first cars for young drivers based on helping you keep within your budget and to make the perfect addition to your lifestyle.


Fiat 500


You won’t find a more desirable car than the Fiat 500. A three door city car which induces nostalgic appeal thanks to its retro styling and cute looks. With a combination of style and affordability the Fiat 500 has been so successful the range has grown to include the Fiat 500L and Fiat 500X – for those who need an extra bit of practicality.


The Fiat 500 is perfect for a new driver, with its diminutive size, good visibility and light steering, it’s enjoyable to drive and easy to park. The Fiat’s interior echoes the retro exterior thanks to its body coloured dashboard, therefore making it the picture perfect car for newly fangled drivers.


Take a look at our latest Fiat offers and learn more about the specifications of the hottest car on the market.


Seat Ibiza


With a stylish design, sport handling and fantastic engine the Seat Ibiza is the ideal first time car for those who want to turn heads. You can buy an Ibiza hatchback with three or five doors making it suitable for those who still have practicality in the back of their minds.


With attractive and distinctive sharp lines, the Ibiza creates an impression that is hard to resist. Streamlined proportions give it a road presence that makes it really stand out from the crowd.


We have a range of Seat Ibiza’s on finance at here at SERE, take a look at the options available to you.



Being a first time car buyer isn’t easy, therefore keep in mind these points when looking for that first ‘ideal car’.
