    I would say a Vauxhall Corsa or a Ford Fiesta. But bluetooth in cars, is a relevantly new thing. So if you wanted bluetooth in your car, you will need purchase a fairly new car. Or you could buy one of the cars I said and just buy a bluetooth adapter and attach it to your radio. Hope this helps

    What do you consider as cheap?

    Basically need an idea of a budget for buying + insuring a car to give you an accurate reply.

    You have a lot of options. For cars of this age, you probably won't get the bluetooth but like the previous person said there are ways around this.

    Since you didn't specify where you intend to drive. I would recommend going for a 1.3-1.4L engine, as it will be more versatile for longer journeys particularly for motorways. Anything less and it's going to be underpowered and you'll get frustrated with it.

    So with that in mind, I recommend looking at either: (in order of popularity)

    Ford Fiesta (02-08)
    VW Polo (02-09)
    Toyota Yaris (99-05)
    Suzuki Swift (05-11)

    All of these meet your specifications, are cheap to buy (probably about £1-2K) and for a 1.3-1.4 engine shouldn't be too crazy on the insurance.

    The Polo or Yaris is for those who want a sensible car and care only about the cars longevity. And the Fiesta and Swift are for those who want something reasonably sensible but also want a bit of cheap thrills on the side. Obviously the design of the car is a personal preference. Some people would like the "sporty" look of the Swift, the "cutesy" look of the tiny Yaris, whereas others might prefer the understated more grown-up look of the Polo etc.

    You also have your typical Corsas and Clios which are OK, but I personally feel these don't have any outstanding features are less reliable and are outclassed in one or many ways by the cars above.

    The boot door counts as a door. So a five door car would be the 2 front doors, 2 rear doors and the boot door.

    A 3 door car would be the 2 front doors and the boot
