What low-insurance group car do you suggest for a new driver?

It's my first time buying a car. I will be driving a minimum 50 miles Monday to Friday, plus weekend use. What makes and models would you suggest? I need a reliable economic car. I'm open to buying used or new, but would prefer to keep costs as low as possible because insurance will be a nightmare due to me being a new driver.
