Ford cars for young drivers

If there’s one car manufacturer that’s instantly recognisable, it has to be Ford. This household name has been gracing our roads for just over a century, since 1907.

Quite simply, Ford is a giant and one of the original masters in building and designing top class cars. Despite being an American born and bred business, people in the UK have had a constant love affair with all things Ford.

Best known for making well designed cars that are excellent value and persistent best sellers, Ford can seemingly do no wrong. They’re a family run business and these family values translate into the design and build of their cars: dependable, safe and of great quality.

Best known for...

With some undeniable classics over the years including the 1970s Capri and Escort, Ford are now best known for two current favourites: the Fiesta and the Focus.

For the last seven years in a row, the Ford Fiesta has been the most popular car in the UK outselling the second favourite, the Vauxhall Corsa. Born back in 1976, this popular run-around has gone through many transformations over the years to the sleek and stylish Fiesta that we know and love today.

So why’s the Ford Fiesta so popular? Perhaps we should ask ourselves - what’s not to love? With its good looks it’s a real joy to drive, plus it’s reliable and economical. This neat little car really does seem to have it all. And, let’s not forget the Focus which has the title for best-selling hatchback car in the UK. The Focus is roomy, attractive and exciting to drive too. It’s no wonder Ford remains a firm favourite with our young drivers.

Get a brand new Ford with an insurance allowance

Frequently asked questions

What is a guarantor?arrow
A guarantor is someone who formally guarantees to pay the finance if the young driver is unable to make the repayments.
What is the benefit of adding a guarantor to my finance application?arrow
If you're aged under 21, you're unlikely to have built up much credit history, so approval will be based on your personal circumstances. Having a guarantor increases your chance of being approved - thus allowing you to start building up your credit score.
How does the insurance allowance work?arrow
It’s pretty simple really. Your quote will let you know the cashback amount available on your chosen car. This is the allowance we’ll pay you to put towards your insurance. We’ll pay this directly into your bank account by BACS on delivery of your brand new car!
You’re free to insure the car with any provider (we think it’s only fair!) Of course, we’d love you to choose Marmalade for your car insurance – so don’t forget to get a quote for our black box insurance once you’ve chosen your dream car. You’ll enjoy comprehensive cover, no curfews and you could earn an extra safe driving discount of up to 25% at renewal¹ if you drive well – on top of any No Claims Discount you earn!
What happens after the first year?arrow
We'll send you a renewal price, but you don't have to take it and if you can find a more suitable policy somewhere else you can move your insurance (we'll miss you though!)
