Starting to drive and looking for a new car? Here are some of the most affordable options on the market right now!

When learning to drive you don’t want to be throwing your money away in the wrong areas and spending a lot on your first car is a luxury that not many of us have.

There are many factors to consider when purchasing your first car lease, anything from the initial cost of the car to expenses such as monthly rentals, fuel, insurance and general running costs. In this article, we go through some of our most cost-effective leasing options at Carparison and give you a short informative insight into each one!

Five affordable cars to lease for new drivers

  1. Citroen Ami
  2. Fiat Panda
  3. Volkswagen UP
  4. Vauxhall Corsa
  5. Kia Picanto
Citroen Ami

Citroen Ami

Our first option is the Citroen Ami, it is also the only fully electric car lease on this list and can do up to 46 miles per charge. The top speed of a Citroen Ami is 28 mph, and it is illegal to drive on the motorway. 

However, this little car can still be beneficial if you live in an urban area where your commute will be short. This pure electric car recently went on sale in the UK for just £7,695 and can be leased on our website for a great price. The inside of the car isn’t going to blow you away, but it has what is needed to do its job! 

Furthermore, this car and the rest are now available to lease on our website for great prices.

Fiat Panda

Fiat Panda

Next up is the Fiat Panda. This quirky-looking car is well known for its longevity in the market and is a very popular choice for a lot of new drivers due to it being surprisingly practical for its size and having an attractive design. 

In addition to this, the Fiat Panda can be leased on our website for a very competitive price. The 1.0-litre hybrid engine paired with its ability to do 50-55 miles per gallon is a combo any new driver should be very happy with. However, the interior of the car may not be up to the standard of some others on this list. 

Finally, moving on to insurance prices, this model costs slightly more than £1,000 without a black box for the first year which is a very respectable price in today’s market.

Volkswagen UP

Volkswagen UP

Our third option belongs to the Volkswagen UP! This car is slightly more expensive than the two cars already named on the list but it certainly makes up for it elsewhere with a classy interior design and a whopping 55 miles per gallon! 

The car has a stop/start system that cuts the engine when it comes to a standstill, therefore, saving more fuel and stopping the car from emitting harmful gases. Much like the Fiat Panda the Volkswagen UP! also has a very great insurance price at slightly above £1,000 for the first year without a black box. 

With a VW lease deal, you get a fantastic combination of cost-effective driving and eye-catching style from the Up!

Vauxhall Corsa

Vauxhall Corsa

Taking the penultimate spot is the very well-known Vauxhall Corsa which is extremely popular as a first car for new drivers and one of our most sought after lease deals. The general look inside and out is very appealing and it does what it says it will. 

You can get a new model for a slightly more expensive price than others but it will do around 45-55 miles per gallon on any of the 1/1.2 or 1.4-litre engines. Which in turn will save you a lot of money on fuel costs.

Also, it is popular for a reason as its reliability, smooth drive and clean finish all over is what is desired by many buyers. Finally, the insurance would cost you slightly above £1,000 for the first year without a black box which once again is very similar to the other cars on this list.

Kia Picanto

Kia Picanto

Our last spot is taken up by the Kia Picanto! The practical, reliable and surprisingly stylish car is a great example of a strong balance across the board. The car can get a huge 55-60 miles per gallon and will be priced competitively on our website where you can lease this and many other cars right now!

KIA can also boast about how their car has a significantly cheaper annual repair cost than the average vehicle, which can certainly boost their popularity within the ‘first car buyers’ market. 

The insurance for the car comes in similar to the rest which is around £1,000 for the first year without a black box, a very respectable price that would be great for any first timers.
