Best Cars For Beginners

If you are about to start driving and are not too comfortable behind the wheel, here are the top 5 best cars for beginners to choose from

Knowing how to drive is a necessity in today's fast-paced world. However, many people are sceptical to start driving. This is mostly due to the fear of own's safety, that of other road users, and the fear of damaging the car. However, if you're someone who has just learnt how to drive or even someone who is about to start learning to drive, here are the top 5 best cars for beginners.

Best Cars for Beginners

1. Maruti Suzuki Alto 800

Maruti Suzuki Alto 800

The Maruti Alto 800 is the most affordable car in the company's product portfolio and often the first car of many. The Alto 800 has light controls and small dimensions, which makes it an ideal choice for new car users. It is also a very reliable, fuel-efficient, and sufficiently powerful car that can give you years of happy motoring along with keeping you at ease during your initial days of driving.

2. Maruti Suzuki WagonR

Maruti Suzuki WagonR

In its third generation now, the Maruti WagonR can turn out to be the ideal first car. We say so as it offers a fairly commanding driving position, thus helping you with a good view of the surrounding. Also, its light controls and small dimensions make it a breeze to manoeuvre in tight spaces. The highly practical tallboy hatchback is on sale with 1.0 and 1.2 petrol engine options and even gets an optional CNG kit if you're someone looking for ultra-low running costs. What's more, the AMT option further makes it a good choice for new drivers.

3. Maruti Suzuki Ignis

Like the WagonR, the Ignis offers a commanding driving position that gives a good view of the surroundings. This, along with the large greenhouse, makes it an ideal choice for beginners. Also, the compact dimensions, light steering and optional AMT makes driving fairly easy for beginners. Also, this small car is well priced and is fairly easy to maintain. It is based on the HEARTECT platform and comes with many features in the top-spec trim.

4. Tata Tiago

Tata Tiago

The most affordable model in Tata Motors' lineup makes for a great choice for new drivers. The Tiago is compact, sufficiently powerful, and has strong brakes and light controls. It's also among the safest cars in its price range. Plus, it comes with a spacious cabin, many features and a good ride quality. It even looks pretty good and is on sale with both petrol and diesel engine options, with the former even being available with an optional AMT.

5. Hyundai Grand i10 Nios

Hyundai Grand i10 Nios

Like the Maruti WagonR, even the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios offers a high seating position, thereby helping the driver with a commanding view of the outside world. It's also more feature-laden than any other car on this list. Plus, it comes with many engine options, including a turbo-petrol and a CNG. One can even choose an AMT for added convenience and ease of operation. Finally, the Nios offers a good ride quality, a sufficiently premium cabin and powerful-yet-frugal engine options that can make life easier for new drivers.
