I'm 21 and looking for my first car...

I am 21 and looking for my first car, but I'm a bit lost. A 1.4 would be ideal with insurance and I have about €4,700 to spend. Any advice as to what cars I should be looking for? Rather something that will last me a few years.

How best to check insurance prices for a car?

I am thinking of buying a second hand car and have started to browse online. Apart from the specs of car and the price, a big determining factor to buy the car or not will be the price of the insurance premium. However, if I want to know the premium I have to go through the rather painful process of filling in online quotation forms. Painful and time consuming. Is there a faster way to check the insurance premium online for any given car I am interested in?
