Hi I am planning getting a car for my second year, so in September. I passed my test in march 2017, have done passplus and have had a few months experience as a named driver on my mum's fiesta and will have more in the summer. I am buying the car and insurance myself, and want to do so outright. So far I've got 2 grand, and with my job etc I should have 5-6 grand by September. I also live near a city, so it needs to be small/easy to drive, but I want it to be a manual. Insurance wise due to being a Nursing student and care assistant I don't want a black box (can't have a curfew). I'll be 19 when I get it.
The list so far of possibilities: citroen c1/Peugeot 107 ford ka vw up/skoda citigo/seat mii vw fox fiat 500 smartcar What I'd like (but probably wont get): seat Ibiza fiat punto (newer models) ford fiesta
Does anyone have any idea's/suggestions on the above? or any recommendations of where to buy it?
Thankyou I will consider the picanto and aygo (the newer one looks so cool) I basically want the most reliable car for the best price. I do love the look of VW but the citigo and mii are v similar and cheaper. Living in Edinburgh means I'll leave my two favourite cars (fiesta and Ibiza) as a possibility for when I move back to Yorkshire after uni.
