Your First Car After You Pass Your Test with Acclaim!

By Sam Cherry on 23rd June 2015 in News

If you’ve ever tried insuring a car, then you’ll know how horrendously frustrating and time consuming it can be to find the best price. This blog will take you through several cars that are in the lowest Insurance Groups and are cheap to insure!

Sometimes it seems as though anything can change an insurers mind about their price. If you eat eggs on a Monday morning or play football on a Thursday night – this seemingly affects the price! It seems as though Insurance companies have no logic behind their quotes but, as you well know, as a general rule, the smaller the engine, the lower the price. We hope this helps you!

Firstly, we can start with the Seat Mii. Available in various levels of power, torque and interior quality – it is fun to drive, down to its lightness due to it being an entry level car, in other words, just after you’ve passed your test! It is compared to the VW Up in many articles, as they are very, very similar. It is almost exactly the same, except a few minor tweaks at the front and rear, also inside. The main difference is the price. As Seat is, in all fairness, a level below VW, the price is a lot lower, as you will need to shed out £9980 for a brand new, 1.0 litre Sport Seat Mii at this moment of time, while a used Mii is priced at around £5000!

Moving on, the Vauxhall Corsa. A very popular car, in 2014, 1 in 6 hatchbacks sold in the UK was a Corsa! At the price of £6500, it is easy to drive and offers lots of interior space, which is why you may see Driving Schools, including ourselves, using them. Unfortunately, for you young drivers, the insurance will be out of this world for the Corsa VXR, but as a good, sturdy, spacious, beginner style and cheap car, the basic Corsa is a good car to go for.

Next up, it’s the VW Up! Yes, it is a bit silly that they insist on having an exclamation mark after the Up but all in all, it is a very good car to have. It’s important that driving should be as relaxing as possible. So VW give their cars a premium interior, with features such as Air Conditioning and any In-Car Entertainment. As I’ve said before, the Seat Mii and VW Up are both very similar, as they are essentially built by the same people, but the VW version is just packed with in-car equipment, which is the only difference. You can purchase one of these from £8870 brand new, or a used Up! at around £6500.

Last but not least, it’s the Ford Fiesta. With every drive being safe, comfortable, entertaining and apparently fun, this car is, by Ford’s records, the best-selling car of all time in the UK. This is probably true, however it isn’t everybody’s favourite car. With a great engine, meaning you won’t have to stop much for fuel, you can purchase this from £10145, even though it is in the lower brackets of the Insurance Groups. When used, it can be bought for around £7000 but this little car has some power and will impress you with how it drifts through the corner but can also pick up some speed on the straights.

Overall, the decision is yours, but out of these selected, small, but fast hatchbacks, in a general opinion, you would pick the Fiesta. However, some boys and girls who have just passed their tests, often want to go against the tide. In this case, the Vauxhall Corsa would be a good car to go for, as it is cheap to insure and a cheap car generally. These may be our opinions, but thinking, the VW Up! and Seat Mii are still good cars if you really feel tempted to purchase one of these cars.
