Buying your first car (or buying it for your 17 year old) is an exciting but scary purchase. In the Sunday Telegraph (September 6th 2009) 'Honest John' the Telegraph's motoring correspondent offered his advise on suitable first cars for new drivers.
"Not a VW Beatle as you can't see the corners when driving and will struggle to park it. A Fiat 500 1.2 is small, cute and fun, but not a brilliant drive. A Hyundai i10 1.2 is easy to park and excellant to drive. The Citroen C1, Peugeot 107, Toyota Aygo, Suzuki Alto and Nissan Pixo are OK to drive, have low tax, Group 1 insurance and good economy."
