Know that we’re nearly three months into the year, we’re starting to get a good idea of what the most popular cars for young drivers in 2019 are likely to be. Unsurprisingly, the likes of the Vauxhall Corsa, Volkswagen Golf and Ford Fiesta have made our list. They provide solid reliability, low running costs and plenty of space. In short, everything that a young driver looks for in one of their first cars.
The Ford Fiesta is set to be one of the most popular cars for young drivers in 2019 because it ticks boxes for both the driver and their parents.
From the parent’s perspective, there is the reassurance of both a five star rating from the Euro NCAP and an advanced SYNC voice activated system. This technology allows the driver to make phone calls, switch their music and control apps, simply with voice commands. There’s no need for the young driver to take their attention away from the road in order to mess around with buttons. Parents will also see the benefit in the Ford Fiesta’s unique MyKey feature, especially if they plan on using the car themselves. Multiple keys are provided with the car, which can be programmed to only activate certain settings. For example, the young driver’s key can be set to restrict the audio volume in the car and prevent the car from reaching maximum speed.
In addition to all this advanced technology, the Ford Fiesta is also an excellent drive. Both the interior and boot are spacious, despite the car’s compact size, and the exterior is easy on the eyes.
The Vauxhall Corsa is pretty much synonymous with young drivers at this point, but that’s no bad thing. Young people recognise that this inexpensive car has a lot to offer them. Multiple engine options are available, but the 1 litre option puts it firmly into the lowest insurance group and road tax bands, a major benefit for young drivers looking to save money where they can. Furthermore, because the Vauxhall Corsa is so popular there are always excellent finance deals to be found.
Thanks to its light steering and small size, the Vauxhall Corsa is a joy to drive both in traffic-packed cities and down winding country lanes. The solid feel of the vehicle can be reassuring, and is backed up by a 4 star rating from the Euro NCAP. Both the steering wheel and seats are adjustable, so a young driver can ensure that the car they’re driving is perfectly suited to their own size. Together with the six airbags and long car bonnet, this can make a massive difference in the event of a crash.
Renowned for its excellent engineering and dependable reliability, the Volkswagen Golf is an iconic hatchback that is perfectly suited to young drivers. Despite it being several decades since the car’s initial release, this now seventh-generation car still has a timeless quality about it. In part this is due to the manufacturer’s attention to detail. The quality of the materials used are high and help to keep the car feeling stylish.
The Volkswagen Golf has a Bluetooth touchscreen as standard, with the voice activation system and Dynaudio sound system additional extra. Running costs are low and there is an electric version available if the young driver is thinking about exploring that option. There’s plenty of space and the vehicle comfortably sits 5 people, or lots of luggage. Like the Ford Fiesta, the Volkswagen Golf received the full five star rating from Euro NCAP.
