Caption: City cars are increasing in popularity
City cars are all the rage. Their small, compact design, efficient fuel consumption and cool aesthetic has made them the vehicle of choice for parents, commuters and city dwellers looking to make the morning rush hour just that little bit more tolerable.
Last year, sales of small cars in the UK grew by nearly 55%, according to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, as drivers increasingly crave a nippy motor that can get them from A-to-B hassle-free.
So if you’re looking to grab yourself a smart urban mover, here are three great city cars to choose from.
Who said small cars have to be for one? The cool and classy Kia Picanto is available as a three- or five-door hatchback, making this a good choice for families and couples.
With a roomy interior, sophisticated safety features and a cool design, the Picanto is a sturdy beast that’ll also turn heads.
The sleek and sassy Honda Jazz offers masses of space, despite its compact size. A small creature with a big personality, the Jazz is a versatile little number that will make city driving easy as 1-2-3.
Honda’s reputation for quality is all over this urban car, a practical and reliable machine with efficient fuel consumption that’s fun and easy to drive. And with more than 250,000 of these vehicles sold in the UK, it’s a clear winner with the British public.
The fun and frivolous Fiat Panda is a great choice for a driver wanting to hulk it around town in a cool-looking machine. Ticking all the boxes – comfort, driveability, practicality – the Panda is a cost-effective urban car.
As the UK’s cities and towns become increasingly congested, a small car is becoming the number one choice for getting out and about with ease – as well as style.
