The Student Car

Generally speaking, the cost of having your own car while at university is quite high. Public transport is much cheaper and faster as well; considering the existence of bus lanes and underground transport. However, if you decide that you want to have a car in order to drive around or go out of town during weekends to get a glimpse of the British countryside. Have a read below about the types of vehicles you may find to be sufficiently economic and within a student budget.
 
When choosing the car you want to buy/take with you to university there are several factors that you should take into consideration: its price, fuel per 100 miles, miles per gallon, top speed, the tax band and the insurance group. Taking these into account, here is a selection of the top 5 cars for first time buyers:
 

1. Hyundai i10

Although really small, it provides impressive space and practicality.
 

2. Ford Fiesta

It has a really stylish look.
 

3. Volkswagen Up

A comfortable ride, but the small engine can struggle on motorways.
 

4. Volkswagen Polo

As with the Volkswagen Up, its downside is the small engine.
 

5. Renault Clio

A bit of a disappointed ride and not such a nice interior design (plastic material).
