Never bring this decision before you consult with someone who knows a lot of the issue or before reading this list. You should not forget that owning a car brings a lot of obligations, as you must think about so many things. First of all, you need to think about the best auto insurance, as this is the most important for drivers. You may also take into consideration some used cars, as you don’t have to rely only on brand new products. However, this list will focus on new cars, but taking into consideration both options; those a little bit pricey and cheaper as well. The most important for young drivers when it comes to cars is to be well-equipped, reliable, and safe, as anything else may be compensated. We took that into consideration while making this list. Let’s see what are the best first cars to buy. Kia Soul If you have around $16,100 to spend on your first car, this should definitely be your decision. The safety score of Kia Soul has been estimated to be 9.7/10, which is a great deal! It also looks very nice and has an incredibly big cargo space. Mazda Miata This is a little bit more expensive, as it costs around $24,915, but it is definitely worth the price, taking into consideration that the safety score is also very big. It comes with the manual transmission, but once you master it, you will have skills to drive well no matter the vehicle.

Toyota Corolla Similar in price with the previous cars from the list, Toyota Corolla can be bought for $18,500 and its safety score is 9.3/10.
