Top 10 city cars on the market right now

City cars offer great features in a compact package. Check out our Top 10!

The city car sector is hot. Forgoing unnecessary speed, spaciousness and luxury, these mini all-rounders are nippy enough to weave in and out of traffic and compact enough to fit into the tiniest of parking spaces. But that doesn’t mean going basic with equipment and tech – a lot of city cars have adapted bigger car engineering to offer features like air-conditioning, Bluetooth and sat-nav as standard.

And just because these are labelled city cars, don’t feel confined to the urban jungle. They’re more than capable of a country road trip, with plenty of room to pack in everything you need for a weekend away.

We’ve compiled a list of the top 10 best city cars, based on reviews by Auto Express, Car Buyer, What Car? and Honest John:

Stamp your personality
Urbanites can make sure their car stands out from the masses by indulging in the veritable smorgasbord of style options. You don’t have to stay safe with black or silver – build on the already stylish exterior with custom colours, trim combinations and accessories to make an individual statement.

Cost effective
If you’re looking for a cost effective little runaround, you can’t go wrong with a city car. They’re great value for money – as well as having a small price tag, they’re cheaper to insure and have reduced road tax costs. They’re also really fuel-efficient because they’re so lightweight and compact. Win-win-win-win!

Go green
You can save even more by avoiding road tax and congestion charging altogether by going electric. Cities are more likely to have convenient charging points, but you should have more than enough juice to get you there and back on one battery.
