The best cars for new drivers are usually the ones that are easy to drive, have low running costs but are still packed with safety features. If you have just passed your driving test, buying your first car is a big decision.  This is why we have put together this useful blog on some of the best first cars for new drivers.

Here are what we believe to be 6 of the best!

Easy to drive and great fun, the Ford Fiesta has been the best-selling car in the country for a long time!
