Default Toyota, Scion, or Fiat for first car?

Ill be starting to drive and I can't decide on what car I should get. I really like them all but I can't choose! The cars are the Toyota Prius C, Toyota Yaris, Scion xD, and the Fiat 500 Sport. Please help me choose and WHY! Please no biased, mean opinions on the car makers. Thanks!

I like the Fiat 500, they are really cheap and they have good gas mileage!

First cars should be cheap so you can not worry about scratches, ding, accidents, forgetting the oil, etc.

The Prius is nice but too expensive.

The one to get depends most on what mechanical service you have available. For example, in the US, the Yaris would probably be best, because every shop works on them.

You should get a crappier car for your first.

More than likely you're gonna screw up in your first year of driving (dents, dings, small fender benders),

hopefully nothing worse.

Yaris is probably the best first car of the group.

Parts are cheaper (Small tires, steel wheels), in case you bounce off a curb or two...

If I were you, I would choose the Scion xD. Prius would be a bit more expensive to repair since its a hybrid, and the other cars are a bit too small.
