If you have plenty of disposable income - well go for what takes your fancy, regardless of cost.
But, for the majority of people the choice of a first car is based on how much it will cost to insure.
The old favourites of Ford Fiesta, Vauxhall Corsa, Fiat 500 etc are right at the top of the list. There are however lots of great cars out there which are solid, reliable and good looking. So when choosing your car have a think about a few things first.
Should I buy new or used?
Cash or Finance?
Will I be locked into a deal I can't get out of for 3+years ?
Will that small first car be suitable for driving up and down the motorway to University?
And above all else can you afford it?
Cars can be fickle things that eat lots of money, so be under no illusion that if you thought that learning to drive was expensive then owning and running a car will definitely cause you to have a sharp intake of breath!
My advice, if you're lucky enough to have access to a family car use that or if not look for something cheap, reliable and clean that won't break the bank.
