Spacious, refined and high-quality, this car perfectly maintains a balance of comfort, handling and stability. It is also incredibly safe as it was awarded a five-star rating by the Euro NCAP. 

Whether you’re buying a used or new model, you can make your car last longer with minimal repairs by taking care of it. Buy good tyres for your Volkswagen Golf, check the engine oil regularly and be sure to top up car fluids.

Released as the sister car to the Toyota Aygo and Citroen C1, the Peugeot 107 is well-built, durable and distinctive with its youthful, sporty appeal. With low price parts for both used and new models, this car is a great value choice. 

Nissan Qashqai 

If you’re looking for a mid-size SUV that has strong equipment levels and value, a Nissan Qashqai is the perfect match for you. Slotting seamlessly into urban family life, the Qashqai is versatile, spacious without being too bulky and buggy friendly. The back doors open widely to accommodate younger children and moving car seats in and out. 

Available in petrol and hybrid versions, this car can make it from zero to 62mph in 9.5 seconds and is complete with a head-up display, matric headlamps, and wireless Apple CarPlay or Android Autoplay. It offers an easy, quiet driving experience and a smooth power delivery, earning itself a reputation as one of the best family cars to buy in 2024.

Toyota Yaris 

Combining the best of comfort, reliability, and driving experience, a Toyota Yaris is both well-built and good value. Following in the footsteps of other models produced by this Japanese powerhouse, the Toyota Yaris has a great reputation for dependability and defies what is possible for a supermini with compact exterior dimensions. 

Its interior is open and driver-focused and constructed from quality, soft-touch materials for an inviting and relaxing cabin. Better yet, you can find Toyota Yaris models for as cheap as £1,000 or pick up a third-generation version for £5,000 if you’re looking for something a little snazzier.
