Top 8 Smart and Affordable City Cars

Top 8 Smart and Affordable City Cars

Urban driving poses some unique challenges, along with focusing on comfort and space, city commuters also require agility, parking convenience and fuel economy. Small city cars and hatchbacks have become enormously popular because of their practicality in rush hour traffic and maneuverability on narrow, swirly city roads. Though markets are flooded with multiple small cars, only a handful actually prove to be good value for money. This brief list contains only the most sought after and practical city cars currently available, so have a look.

Scion IQ:
Designed and launched to challenge monopoly of Smart fortwo, IQ offers an ingenious 3+1 seating compared to Smart’s two. Though practically it can seat only 3 adults, nonetheless it provides a lot more space with similar handling.

Kia Rio:
With its distinct Tiger-Nose, Kia finally got a unique personality. Rio brings much needed zing into Kia’s line with its peppy engine, sporty looks and ample seating for four. It easily becomes the most practical choice for city dwellers with its 1.1 litre diesel engine, yielding as much as 88.3 MPG on average. But its traditional hatchback styled body takes away some of the maneuverability and parking ease when compared to Smart and IQ.

Smart fortwo:
The original trendsetter, though Smart doesn’t hold the title of ‘Most Economical Car’ and doesn’t appear smarter when compared to Scion IQ either, its iconic stature, for introducing a whole new market niche, is enough to keep its desirability index high.

Mini Coupe:
Mini can easily be considered the most hip and iconic car on this list. With an agile 1.6 litre petrol engine, attaining 40 MPG, it becomes the perfect combination of style, performance and economy; a combination which none other inductee offers. However, with just two seats and smaller than average boot, it offers minimal practicality for carrying out daily chores.

VW Beetle:
Beetle is more of a Mini challenger than Smart’s. With an equally impressive lineage and a more power centric approach, 2012 Beetle comes with 2.5 litre, 175 BHP engine. That is too much power for handling grocery shopping. Unlike Mini, Beetle has more room inn seating and boot area. Also, its powerful engine won’t shy away and make it appear underpowered on open roads and highways.

Mazda 2:
Neither as roomy as Rio nor as fuel efficient, and it can’t be compared to head turners like mini and Beetle, but it subtly maintains its own unique identity. Sporty, zippy, roomy and fun, Mazda 2 is more of an all-rounder than a specialist.

Toyota Yaris:
With Yaris you get what you paid for, an economical, reliable, roomy, well equipped city car that can handle motorways with equal ease. When compared with Minis and Beetles, it is not much of an eye candy but neither of the two can compete with it in practicality.

Honda Fit:
More agile and better styled than Yaris, Fit was launched to compete with Yaris and Yaris alone. Honda’s chic design and sportier suspension makes Fit as fun as Mini, without compromising on space and practicality. Going either of these eight depends on your commuting needs, as all offer some unique incentive that other miss out.
