Top 10 city run around cars

Even those of use who love to tune our machines to perfection sometimes just need to run a few errands. Here’s a rundown of the top ten small cars ideal for urban driving.

  1. KIA PICANTO

The Picanto has good aesthetics and a comfortable interior along with an impressive array of standard equipment, but the driving experience doesn’t rise to the same standard and is actually a little rough.

  1. TOYOT AYGO

Whether the Aygo’s distinctive styling speaks to you will be a matter of taste but everyone can agree that its excellent handling is ideal for tricky manoeuvres on narrow city streets, making it a great pick.

  1. VAUXHALL VIVA 

The Viva is cheap to run and comes with a wide array of safety options, though it’s not the most stylish option on the market.

  1. PEUGEOT 108 

Very refined for a car that’s so cheap to buy and run, the 108 comes with a generous array of standard equipment.

  1. FIAT PANDA

A spacious car with a very high reliability index, this is the choice for you if your primary concern is avoiding a breakdown at an inconvenient time.

  1. VOLKSWAGEN UP!

Sharing a basic design with the Seat Mii and the Skoda Citigo, this car has the same smooth ride and handling but is a little more expensive with only a more luxurious interior to justify the added cost.

  1. CITROEN C1

One of the cheapest options available (though some more upmarket models are available from dealers like Robins and Day), the C1 delivers a great driving experience and fuel economy side by side.

  1. SEAT MII

The Mii boasts plenty of space and is a pleasure to drive. However, it is a little more expensive to run than some of its rivals.

  1. SKODA CITIGO

The cheapest of the Citigo, the Mii, and the up! is also the overall best since it brings the same enjoyable drive, low running cost and spaciousness with the reliability of an old stalwart.

  1. HYUNDAI I10

Many outlets agree with our pick for the number one spot. The i10 is spacious, glides over the rode with barely a sound or bump, and offers one of the highest MPGs of its class. For a city car it’s a choice you can’t go wrong with.
