Choosing a supermini car will also guarantee good value for money when it comes to ownership and running costs.
The Ford Fiesta is the UK’s number one choice of car and won the What Car? Supermini of the Year 2013. This car offers something for everyone and would make the perfect choice for new parents, mainly because it offers a comfortable, stylish and spacious interior which includes plenty of safety kit as standard. It’s a practical car but the driving experience remains fun and the boot is nice a deep offering plenty of room for that all-important buggy. Furthermore, the Fiesta has been awarded a five-star NCAP safety rating, meaning your little one will benefit from maximum protection.
Kia has not only produced a stylish looking supermini, but it also offers the most attractive seven year warranty package to all of its owners and comes at an affordable, competitive price. Furthermore, this car is well made and reliable, and is quite capable of withstanding a motorway drive when required. Its 1.1 litre diesel engine offers CO2 emissions as low as 85g/km meaning it’s cheap to run too and the low insurance costs are an added bonus. You’ll find plenty of space inside for your car seat and room in the boot for is ample for a buggy.
The Volkswagen Polo isn’t the cheapest supermini on the market but its classiness and refinement make up for the higher price tag you’ll pay. It offers a range of economical, strong engines and its higher build quality means it will offer maximum protection to your little one. If you are looking for something classy and stylish, the Polo is an excellent choice, and it offers a wide deep boot space which will not only fit your buggy but plenty more on top, so if you’re looking for something a little more upmarket which still offers value for money this could be the car for you.
We couldn’t miss the Dacia Sandero off our list, mainly because it’s currently the cheapest supermini available to buy in the UK, so if affordability is high on your list of priorities, this could be the car for you. Although its standard equipment is incredibly basic – you’ll pay extra for a stereo, air con and electric windows – step inside the cabin and you’ll find it surprisingly spacious and comfortable. It offers a decent sized boot and most importantly, it’s also cheap to run.
The Hyundai i20 is a great car for city driving, so perfect for ferrying your little one around!
