When it comes to whipping around the concrete jungle on four wheels, practical is the name of the game. But here at Sporteluxe we can’t resist shiny, pretty things, which is why we say all of these sleek city cars – which range in price from budget to high roller – are worth booking a test drive today. After all, sometimes the best things come in small packages…
Volkswagen Polo Comfortline
Slide into this little pocket rocket and you’ll soon understand why the Polo consistently makes it onto Best City Car lists. Incredibly fuel efficient, this German masterpiece is a dream to drive, offering a smooth and zippy ride around the city. It has exceptional resale value too!
Cute and comfy
Running hot in Australia, the Mazda 2 if the ultimate entry-level city car, but boasts much of the technology you’d find in upper range (read: expensive) models. Once you’re inside, this little city whip actually feels a size larger than it is, which makes for a pretty comfy ride too.
For the cool kids
The quintessential European city car, the Fiat 500 is fast becoming the vehicle-of-choice for the style-conscious city set. With cute-as-a-button retro styling, outstanding fuel efficiency and a list of colour-ways including tones like Blue Jelly Bean, it’s an obvious choice for aesthetic- and budget-conscious car owners.
A touch of prestige
Taking things to the next level, the Audi A1 features smooth steering with high quality European interiors, all rolled into one sporty, city-friendly package. This prestige city car, with top of the line technology and style to boot, ticks all of our boxes.
Money no object? Or just looking for something amazing to save for? Then you can’t go past the BMW i3. Sure, it’s stylish and futuristic, with all of the bells and luxurious whistles we expect from BMW, but the thing we love most is that it won Green Car of the Year at last year’s World Car of the Year awards. Why the environmental thumbs up? It’s powered by electricity.
