For city drivers, there’s no point getting an expensive, fuel guzzling 4X4 if you’re only going to be doing five, ten or fifteen miles a day. It makes financial sense to opt for one of the many excellent, used small city cars available through the RRG Group. Here are ten of the best.
1. Hyundai i10
A fantastic little family car, with four doors and an ample boot despite its size, the Hyundai i10 is great for those with kids or pets. Cheap to tax and insure while boasting around 65mpg, there’s no wonder it’s one of the best small city cars.
2. Skoda Citigo
It has ‘citi’ in its name, so it’s no surprise the Skoda Citigo is a fine city car. The boxy shape is reflected in powerful handling, so much so that it can handle trips further afield down the motorway just as easily.
3. SEAT Mii
Similar to the Citigo, the SEAT Mii is one of the sportiest small city cars on this list. There’s a choice between the more powerful 74bhp 1.0 litre engine or the Ecomotive model which delivers around 69mpg and 95g/km of CO².
4. Kia Picanto
You can get a great bargain on a used model of this small city car, as a new Kia Picanto has been released in 2017. It comes with a seven-year/100,000 mile warranty as well.
5. Volkswagen Up!
A nippy little hatchback, the VW Up! is a bit more expensive than some other city cars but as a premium motor it features top quality interior and exterior styling. You really will look like a high-flying city executive in one.
6. Fiat Panda
A spacious exterior, with a four-wheel drive option available too, the Fiat Panda is highly practical. The large boot makes it great for transporting dogs.
7. Vauxhall Viva
All the convenience you require at a low cost is included with the Vauxhall Viva. It’s a solid choice for an urban drive, with an automatic model adding extra ease.
8. Toyota Aygo
The striking design ensures the Toyota Aygo stands out among the crowd of small city cars, with its X motif on the front. Remote central locking make it a safe city option.
9. BMW i3
Pacy, unique and low running costs thanks to its electric engine make the BMW i3 ideal for driving around city centres. Over 100 miles can be covered in one charge, so you can get through the week comfortably.
10. Renault Twingo
Funky looks and plenty of trim levels and customisation mean you can find a Renault Twingo that suits your city style. A good turning circle is useful for those tight city spots.
Any of these ten quality cars will be great for your city escapades, so choose one that best meets your needs or suggest your favourites we may have missed out.
