Smart cars for young drivers

Smart

A modern-day icon of a brand, Smart has been at the forefront of urban driving innovation for nearly 20 years. Huge personalities on compact city cars mean that Smart turn heads and delight drivers; They’re built to be brilliant in cities, fantastic to drive, kind on your pocket, and packed with forward-thinking tech.

Developed to fill a gap in the market for small, stylish city cars, Smart are the epitome of clever design and German engineering finesse.

Best known for...

The original 2-seater coupe, which took the market by storm in 1998 and gave city drivers the tiny turning circles and ease of parking that they so desperately needed.

Innovation has led to improved versions of the 2-seater, as well as a 4-seater, a roadster, a soft top, and now an electric version of this iconic brand’s microcar. Every design and concept maintains the famous practicality and small dimensions, while giving customers the space, personalisation, comfort and tech that they love.

Frequently asked questions

What is a guarantor? Plus Icon

A guarantor is someone who formally guarantees to pay the finance if the young driver is unable to make the repayments.

Before agreeing to become a guarantor for young driver, it is important you check that you would be able to afford the repayments (if they fail to pay the finance instalments), as non-payment pay could affect both yours, and their, credit score and result in repossession of the car.

How does the insurance work? Plus Icon

We offer you a personalised quote based on your age and postcode and the majority of our customers really do get free insurance. We know it's a big outlay buying and insuring your first car. We developed this offer to help ease the pain during what's probably going to be your most expensive year of car insurance – whilst you build up that first year's all important no claims bonus. Our insurance is underwritten by Allianz, one of the largest insurers in the UK.

Will I need to have a black box in the car? Plus Icon

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.

What happens after the first year? Plus Icon

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!)
