Been asked a few times recently, the answers have all been a car that the standard 17-25 wouldn't be seen dead in.

My first car was a Toyota Carina E to give you an example - that was 20 years ago though!

VW LUPO 1.2 2 door...it got me from a to b. what's there to complain about!

Audi rs4 v8. Great on fuel cheap to insure lol

What's your budget?

go to insurance comparison sites and keep changing the details of the cars you like. often chavmobiles like corsa and fiesta are considered high risk and you might get cheaper insurance on a larger car (even zafira can work out cheaper than corsa)

Something with a speed restriction or a black box fitted...

honda jazz..

Best first car is one of those plugged in outside a shop, insurance dead cheap and fuel costs reasonable

Other than that with having 5 kids all been there as teenagers it's all about what's 'cheap' to you, as one mans cheap is another ones bloody expensive.

Peugeot 107

When we got our son his first car last year at 18 we did quotes on Corsa, basic model (very expensive ) Peugeot 107 and Toyota aygo (cheapest) and Ford Fiesta basic model (bit more expensive than the aygo) we went with the fiesta

Vw polo 1.2 cheap to buy and insure... £1300 insurance new driver tax is high.

Can't go wrong with Fiesta or a Lupo/Polo.

In which case whatever has a long MOT and you can afford to insure.
Don't underestimate how shafted your going to get with your first few years insurance.
