Top Choices For First Time Car Buyers

Top Choices For First Time Car Buyers

Motorfinity’s Sales Manager, Luke Chambers, considers his top 3 choices for first time buyers

All my choices have been made from the supermini class. The brand-new 2022 models available now through Motorfinity are more spacious, tech enhanced and generally just great all-rounders. 

Whether you are driving on country roads, motorways or around town, my top picks are totally user-friendly and fun to drive. They also have an impressive 5* Euro NCAP safety rating. and come with an attractive 3-year warranty giving first time buyers peace of mind.

I’ve hand-picked 3 options which live up to most first-time buyers’ expectations in the following ways:

1. Officially achieving around 50mpg, they are very economical on fuel. 

2. All with 1.0 litre engines, the selected models are all low on insurance.

3. For peace of mind, they all carry a 3-year warranty and MOT.

4. They score high for reliability and are cheap to service.

For the benefit of those on a budget, the models I have chosen start from £14,500. All finance options are available through Motorfinity. PCP terms on these models would cost the first-time buyer around £230 per month with a £1,000 deposit. We do have no deposit terms available. Here are my top 3 picks:

Oli’s Choice – In Praise of the Seat Ibiza

“I am 18 years old, have always loved anything to do with cars, and have recently taken delivery of my first brand-new car. Watching my stylish Seat Ibiza being delivered to my front door on the back of a trailer was a dream come true. Why the Ibiza? It’s great fun to drive, it’s nippy and there’s plenty of room inside – it’s deceptively spacious for a small car. As a young motorist, it’s great to give my mates a lift and the 5-door model makes this easy. The adaptable boot-space is roomy too – plenty of space for gym kit etc. I love the sound system and the good-sized digital screen comes as standard.

“In terms of budget, the insurance is very low on the basic model. With fuel prices being high at the moment, the official 50mpg, (depending on ‘drive mode’), is pretty impressive. I’ve got a 3-year manufacturer’s warranty/ no MOT costs. It’s low maintenance and I don’t have to worry too much about depreciation. I’m a very happy guy!”

With all makes and models available, buying through Motorfinity is simple, convenient, and hassle-free. We offer a complete, 5* service from enquiry to doorstep delivery. Couple this with our amazing discounts and your dream of a first time brand-new car turns into reality - a dream come true.
