If you’re constantly traveling around the city, navigating winding streets and parking in tricky spots, then getting a city car would be a fantastic investment. City cars are cool because they’re cheap to run, offer quality driving, and are a practical UK car leasing option.
Below, we’ve had a look at some of the best city cars on offer. Ranging from the cheap and cheerful, to the stylish and highly practical. Take a look and see which city car would suit you best!
This car is all about style, and the 500’s funky retro design makes it great fun to cruise around the city. This quirky car has some pretty flexible engines too, and is one of the safest superminis you can opt to drive. There’s a bit more interior and boot space than the Chevrolet Spark, but not by much. Remember, you’ll also have to pay extra for specs such as air conditioning.
The Spark is nifty little city car which is quite cheap too. It’s reasonably practical, and the higher spec versions get a decent amount of kit. Although it’s fun and easy to drive in an urban environment, the engine can get a little bit noisy at times, and there’s not a great amount of space inside. It makes for a great vehicle leasing choice, as there are only second-hand models available now.
We love VW and the VW Up! is possibly one of the best choices on this list if we were to buy a car to drive around a city in. Not only does this car have a classic chic style, but it offers wonderful performance too. There’s a decent amount of space inside, the engine is economical, and it’s plenty of fun to drive. The only downside is that the Up! can be a little bit pricey when compared to other superminis in the same category.
The Citigo definitely ranks as one of the best city cars around, and although it may not be as stylish at the Fiat 500 or Up! it has some fantastic performance and engines to offer. It is economical and well built, but also gives drivers some good value for money. Although it does struggle at higher speeds, it’s super cheap to buy and run.
The C1 out of all the city cars we think looks the coolest. It’s a great modern choice for people who live in the city, and want something nippy and practical, but with style. Most versions of the C1 come well equipped, and the light and easy steering makes parking a breeze. The ride can be a little bumpy at times, and the rear space is on the small side too.
