Best Cars for Under 25s

Last updated on: April 4, 2024

If you are looking for an easy-to-drive car to practice and gain driving experience on, we have picked our top 7 best cars for under 25’s. In this blog, we’ll highlight the reasons why you should consider each car, and depending on your needs & preferences, we hope you identify with at least one of them to help you on your search for your first car.

Toyota Aygo

The Toyota Aygo is ideal for the under 25’s because it has a very small engine, so this makes it cheaper to insure, as under 25’s are often hit with high insurance premiums, so this is definitely where the Toyota Aygo has its perks. The latest versions of the Toyota Aygo are also equipped with DAB radio, Bluetooth, and on some specifications even a reversing camera, so this is particularly ideal for younger drivers as they still may be getting to grips with reverse parking.

Reasons Why We Love The Toyota Aygo

  • It’s compact in size
  • Good value for money
  • Easy to park
  • Functional
  • Has the latest technology
  • Good audio sound system

Seat Ibiza

The Seat Ibiza is a fun car, it is medium-sized but still small enough to easily park, but large enough to sit friends comfortably in the rear of the car. The reason why we think it is a hit with the under 25’s is that all the vehicle’s design features are suitable for the needs of younger people, as it is equipped with a BT Bluetooth system, sporty seats, and a decent-sized boot.

Here are Some More Reasons why The Seat Ibiza is Worth Purchasing

  • It has sporty seats
  • In between small and medium-sized
  • LED headlights
  • Isofix seats
  • Small-sized engine

Vauxhall Astra

The Vauxhall Astra shares many similarities with the Seat Ibiza, they are both cool cars that are of a similar size. The Vauxhall Astra is sleek and sophisticated and it is a bit more grown-up than the Vauxhall Corsa, so this is a car the over 21s may consider. The Vauxhall Astra is the type of car you would own when you are about to transition from your first car to your second.

Here is some extra information on what makes the Vauxhall Astra so great.

  • It’s spacious
  • It looks modern
  • It has the latest technology
  • It has an SOS button
  • It has a comfy interior

BMW 1 Series

The BMW 1 Series is one of the most popular cars purchased by the under 25s. This is because the BMW is packed with sophistication and the German engineering really makes the car stand out from its competitors. However, some may think that the BMW 1 Series is expensive and younger drivers may not be able to afford the car, but second-hand versions of the 1 Series can be purchased at a much lower price.

Here are Some More Features on the 1 Series

  • 17” alloy wheels
  • Air conditioning
  • Keyless start
  • Start/Stop technology
  • Bluetooth system
  • Cruise control
  • Front and rear parking sensors
  • Automatic headlights

Mercedes A-Class

The Mercedes A-Class is one of the BMW 1 Series’ biggest competitors and usually, when people go to purchase either vehicle it is a close decision between the two as they share so many similarities. They are both German-engineered vehicles and they are both small to medium-sized vehicles which younger people love to drive. What makes the Mercedes A-Class and the BMW 1 Series different from their competitors is that the build quality of the cars is always exceptional and people always seem to come back to the brands again and again.

Here is what makes the Mercedes A-Class special

  • Reversing camera
  • Heated seats
  • DAB radio
  • Apple CarPlay
  • Bluetooth connectivity
  • Climate control

Volkswagen Scirocco

The Volkswagen Scirocco is a sporty car. It is ideal for those who want a bit of fun whilst driving. The car is small but has a large rear end, which makes the car ideal for those who prefer driving a smaller car but they do not want a supermini or they have grown out of owning a supermini. You are probably wondering why we have chosen the Scirocco when Volkswagen has lots of fun, young cars like the Golf and the Polo. This is because the Scirocco has a unique design and it is of course appealing to younger people as it is a show stopper.

Here is Some More Info on the Special Features the Scirocco Has

  • Cruise Control
  • Reversing camera
  • Front and rear sensors
  • Diamond cut wheels (on some specifications)
  • Heated seats

Mini One

The Mini One has always been popular with under 25s. There is just something so special about owning a Mini early on in your driving experience. Most people in their youth have owned a Mini, as they have been around for decades and they are high quality and affordable. The latest version of the Mini One is very luxurious and it seems to have every technology feature that one would expect. The Mini of course is also very easy to park because of its size and we are certain young drivers will have lots of fun driving their fun and nippy Mini.

Here are some more reasons why the Mini One is suitable for younger drivers

  • Sat Nav with real-time traffic information
