What Are The Best Used Cars For New Drivers?

For new young drivers working with a tight budget, finding that perfect first car can become something of a nightmare. You need to find a vehicle that doesn’t cost a fortune or come with high insurance costs, while you also need to keep a keen eye on how expensive your first vehicle will be to actually run.

Of course, this leads many new drivers on a search for the best used cars around, as they dream of finding a real bargain and coming away with a car they love. The only problem is: there are just so many used cars to choose from, and you aren’t sure which cars are the best to buy.

But there’s no need to panic, because we’ve put together a quick list of the best used cars for new drivers in 2018.

Renault Clio

The last thing a new driver needs is to have to worry about parallel parking a great big bulky 4x4, as instead they should be looking at more sensible, compact vehicles. The Renault Clio has been a firm favourite of the new driver for years now, and it’s still one of the best used cars to buy in 2018.

Always cheap to purchase and notoriously reliable, the Clio is so popular due to how inexpensive it is to run, and this is the perfect vehicle for new drivers that are looking for a bargainous vehicle they can depend on. It’s nothing particularly flashy- but that’s exactly how your first vehicle should be.

You can shop used Renault Clio with V12 today, starting at £3,000.

Nissan Micra

The Nissan Micra has undergone something of a transformation in recent times, after a fantastic revamp back in 2017. That being said, it still isn’t to everyone’s tastes.

But you shouldn’t let your first impressions of the Micra deceive you because, even if you can’t stand the sight of it, it’s a very tidy car indeed underneath the surface. It’s become famous for just how robust it is, with a surprising amount of power behind it which doesn’t cost a fortune to run. This well-balanced vehicle is a fantastic all-rounder, and it’s undoubtedly one of the most reliable used cars for new drivers.

If you’re looking to buy a used Nissan Micra, search the V12 collection to see if we have anything available.

Vauxhall Corsa

If you’ve got a little more in your spending budget, then you need to seriously consider the Vauxhall Corsa. This tight, compact vehicle has been a firm favourite for new drivers of the past few years, and it joins the Clio as one of the most popular first cars in the UK.

Offering lots of interior space, a comfortable drive and a great little engine, the Corsa is always a fantastic choice for your first car. Whether you want to snag a bargain on an older model or go all out for the latest design, we always recommend this little beauty to first-time buyers.
