Charles Hurst New Cars

We’ve done the research and found these are the best cars to buy for New Drivers

Nothing compares to driving a brand-new car along the open road. Charles Hurst offers a wide selection of the latest models from a variety of top brands, and because they’re the leading new car dealer in Northern Ireland, you’ll find plenty of competitive offers.

New drivers have never had it so good. Small cars no longer skimp on equipment so it’s common for them to be kitted out with high-tech goodies you’d find in a luxury car. The frugal, yet powerful petrol engines can return diesel-like economy. And safety is paramount for manufacturers so a new car offers better protection if you are involved in a crash.
