We had an i10 for 7 years and it was fantastic for our daughter to drive. Long warranty and cheap to run too. Very reliable. Have had far more problems with my VW!!

Skoda Citigo - cheap to insure, easy to drive.

Citigo is a really fun car to drive. I used to run a couple of vRS’s and I often got a citigo as a loaner - totally different but a proper “itailian” type small car you drive until the pistons come out through the bonnet.

The sister cars are most likely much the same the VW UP! and Seat Mii.

The Citroen C1, Toyota Aygo and Peugeot 107 (same platform) aren’t as nice to drive but are generally super cheap to insure.

Something a bigger is obviously going to be more expensive to run but I know a number of people who seem happy enough with corsas and fabias. The fiesta is a lovely car to drive but can be fairly expensive to insure for younger folks.
