Revealed: Top cars for Nan

You’ve been tasked with finding a vehicle for your kid’s grandmother, or perhaps your own Nan. And while shopping for a car with a budget that doesn’t come from your own wallet sounds fun at first, it’s a lot tougher than you’d imagined. Rest assured, we’ve got your back. Here are our top picks for Nanna.

There are a number of factors that are important to consider before you start scrolling to get Nan rolling. Will she need space for kid’s car seats if she’s a regular babysitter? Does she do long roadies at Christmas time every year? Or maybe it’ll just be a simple buzz box to do her weekly grocery shop.

Depending on your Nan’s needs, these vehicles are likely to meet the mark.


1. For the working Nan: The Toyota Yaris

A tried and tested make and model, the Toyota Yaris is steadfast in style and reliability. Compact enough for Nan to slide into a small sized garage after she finishes work, or even take into town on one of her days off. She’ll have no trouble maneuvering this beauty that boasts both Apple CarPlay and Android Audio. There’s just one catch, you’ll likely have to connect her phone!


2. For the eco-conscious Nan: The Nissan Leaf

The all-electric Nissan Leaf is renowned for making electric vehicles more accessible to the everyman (or, should we say, the every Nan) - and it really does, depending on what year model you go for. It’s an ideal choice if your Nan only takes trips here and there, as she can simply charge the vehicle in her carport instead of filling up at pricey petrol stations.


3. For the off-road Nan: Kia Stonic GT-Line

Dubbed Kia’s smallest SUV, this is a real catch for Nan. With self-locking doors that make remembering whether she hit the ‘lock’ button a thing of the past, this vehicle is ideal - particularly if Nan still likes to hit the road for the odd weekend away. The Kia Stonic has enough space to fit the grandkids, as well as everything she needs to escape the everyday. The best part? It drives and looks like an unsuspecting smaller-sized vehicle.


If you’ve been tasked with taking care of Nan’s new ride, why not make your first stop CARS24? It’s now easier than ever to take Nan to the virtual car yard from the comfort of her couch. Simply visit the website, select her requirements, and see what’s on offer.
