As most of the cities in the UK are extremely crowded, with parallel parking increasingly becoming tighter, a fairly compact car can save you from a bump too many. You also need it to be very fuel efficient, as the constant stopping and starting you will experience in the city will increase your fuel consumption considerably.
So, without further ado, here are the top 5 city cars to look out for in 2010:
1. Ford Ka
The Ford Ka has been given a redesign based on the Fiat 500, improving the engine to offer a more supple and responsive ride than its predecessor.
2. Vauxhall Corsa
The Vauxhall Corsa offers everything you’d look for in a city car – fuel efficiency, good looks and, although you wouldn’t have guessed it, spacious interiors – great for sharing between partners!
3. Audi TT
A firm London favourite, the TT caters for a specific taste in design but offers something for everyone in power and handling.
4. Peugeot 107/Citroen C1
We couldn’t distinguish between the two as they are pretty much identical under the hood, except the Peugeot offers the best fuel economy. Both can transition well between city and urban driving environments and both have been given a modern redesign for 2010.
5. Volkswagen Fox
Although it’s an older model, the Fox should be considered if there’s going to be a lot of motorway driving
