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.

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 work?arrow
For the majority of cars 12 months’ black box insurance is included in the deal. If, for any reason, we’re unable to offer you 12 months’ insurance, we’ll offer a contribution towards your policy with Marmalade and let you know how much you need to pay, or we’ll give you a cashback to help you get cover elsewhere.
Where your car will be covered by Marmalade black box insurance, we’ll send you a small device to fit the windscreen of your car and ask you to download our driving app. This measures how you’re driving and lets you keep an eye on your driving score. You’ll be pleased to know our safest drivers can earn a safe driving discount at renewal - in addition to any No Claims Discount earned.
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!)
How long until I get my new car?arrow
Good question. It depends on the car you're after and how far you want to go customising it! If you want your car delivered ASAP give us a call on 0333 358 3441 to find out what's available now. If you've got your heart set on a certain colour or upgrade the car may have to be made to order. Whatever your circumstances, our friendly team can talk you through timescales for the different options – and we'll keep you posted on progress until it's delivered.
