Kia Picanto: £99 per month

£99 per month with a £2,600 deposit (4.9 per cent APR)

Best first cars for new drivers - Kia Picanto

The Kia Picanto is an attractive city car even before you consider it can cost less than £100 per month. It is fun to drive, offers an equipment list more commonly found on bigger cars and feels well made.

It wasn’t that long ago though that cheap, small Kias couldn’t hold a candle to those cars offered by the big European brands, but that is no longer the case and buying a Picanto over a VW up! or Ford KA+ is no longer a straightforward decision.
