What car should you choose?

Since passing your test you have no doubt been weighing up which type of car would be best for you. Sleek and sporty, small and sturdy or maybe loud and large! Whatever your choice we can help. Our years of experience have shown that often, the smaller car is the more popular with car finance for new drivers. Cheaper to run, easier to insure and plenty of variety for variable budgets. At GetCarFinanceHere our in house selection of used cars is vast and varied.

Volkswagen UP!

The VW up is fantastic car for a new driver or for someone needing to downsize. Initially bought to market in 2011, the UP! Has seen a variety of developments over the years and remains a city car with a big reputation.

Available as a GTi, and an electric car as well as the standard model, the UP! Oozes versatility. The 3 door hatch or GTi appeals to some whilst the larger 5-door has a varied mix of editions including, “Beats” a tie-in with the famous headphone brand.

With 15inch alloys and a smartphone sat nav interface it ticks many of the boxes new drivers look for. All models come with a 5 speed gearbox or 6 if you go for the GTi. A one litre engine helps make it affordable and its 251 litre boot-expandable to 959 with seats lowered-means that those first road trips won’t be a challenge in this surprisingly spacious city car.

Ford Fiesta

A classic of a first car, the Ford fiesta has long been a favourite for drivers all over the UK. It could even be the car your parents first drove but fear not. The Fiesta has evolved and as a first car for new drivers, it is an all-round winner. With models to suit all budgets Ford have ensured nobody can miss out on the iconic British car. Three different engine sizes available and a differing availability of gearboxes mean you can shop around the range to find one that suits your needs. The Trend, the most popular of the range and the entry level addition to the collection boasts 16 inch alloys, Bluetooth and an 8inch touchscreen. If you look to go higher up the scale you can grip the road with some 18inch alloys and pump out the music courtesy of a Bang and Olufsen sound system. Seen as the perfect car for both tall and short drivers, the fiesta really is versatile.

Accompany these features with the impressive boot space of 1093 litres and it is an all rounder that both new and experienced driver will benefit from.

Kia Picanto

The Kia brand has just constantly grown in popularity over the years, affordable, visually impressive and strong enough to challenge any other brand as a market leader.

In terms of city cars, the Picanto has definitely made its presence known. Available in a variety of models with the standard range being simply numbered 1,2 and 3 and complimented with the more sporty GT-line and X-line variations, the Kia Picanto is a car that covers many bases. All come with a five-speed gearbox and varied key features depending on which edition you go for. The Picanto 1 for example comes with less than the Picanto 2, which obviously comes with less than the Picanto 3. Key features for the Picanto 2 are the introduction of alloy wheels whereas when you go to the Picanto 3, SatNav, a reversing camera system and Apple CarPlay all feature additionally.

With 1010 lite boot capacity with the seats down it only just misses out on the storage size granted by the Ford Fiesta.
