We have also added a filter to show cars UP TO £3,499 and cars ABOVE £3,500. This value is the approximate price spent on a first car in 2020. My first car cost me £150 in 1985 (a Fiat 125s – 75HP).

A majority of the cars listed here are classified between insurance group 2 and 6 – however – please make certain that any particular model is within your insurance budget before completing a sale.
