I’ve got a 1L 2002 Nissan Micra SE with 70000 miles. It’s a nice little car and it was very cheap to buy, plus my insurance isn’t terrible (it’s still expensive but not bad for an 18 y/o).

‘13 1.6 golf but that’s with 4 years NCD. I think if you’re after a first car maybe look at a 1.0 (not sure if they do those) or 1.2 polo. Also have a look at the VW UP

Quite a few “small” hatchbacks are now 1.0L such as the VW UP, Citroen C1, Ford Focus ecoboost, Hyundai i10, Suzuki swift, VW polo,Renault Clio ect ect

All of those model come in 1.0L variants which would keep the insurance low 👍

That is a great choice of car 15 years old with plenty of miles is a sound choice as a student car.
It's very dependable and reliable. Spare Parts are cheap and easily accessible. Being a 1.6 it's quite zippy around the motorways.

yeah that’s a decent car for a first one, how much was your insurance if you don’t mind me asking?

I’ve paid £60 for a week with Veygo as I’m away for a lot of this year now so there was no point getting an annual insurance. When I looked at annual, it was minimum 800 with a black box, or 1500ish without a black box and with additional drivers.
