As many car insurance customers return to university this month, one company has revealed some of the best-value cars to send them off in.

According to the Warranty Direct study, the Honda Jazz is most suited to a student-sized budget of under £3,000, as it is the least likely to break down - which may also mean cheaper car insurance premiums.

The Vauxhall Astra came second on the list, followed by the Toyota Yaris, Nissan Micra and Volkswagen Lupo.

Reliability was measured through Warranty Direct's records of the rates of failure, average mileage, age and cost to repair for each car studied.

"Sending a son or daughter off to university can be a worrying experience for a parent, so having the peace of mind that you've sent them off in a car that's less likely to break down is a bonus," commented Duncan McClure Fisher, managing director of Warranty Direct.
