Best Cars for City Driving

When searching for a new car, there are a multitude of things to consider, including how many people you need to transport, what the car will be used for and what environment you will be driving in.

The practicality of a car is one of the main things people look for, as it needs to meet their day-to-day requirements.

If you will regularly be driving around cities or towns with tight or hard to navigate streets, you will want a car that compliments this lifestyle.

Compact hatchbacks are one of the options available if you are making regular journeys in and around cities, whether that is where you reside or where you commute to.

Compact Renault Twizy

The most compact car we sell here at Dales Cornwall is the Renault Twizy, a unique design that will set you apart from everyone else on the road. 100% electric, the Twizy can be charged in just three and a half hours with a regular socket. With a range of 62 miles, the Renault Twizy can easily make multiple short journeys on one charge.

If you live in an area where parking is an issue, the Twizy might be the ideal option for you, as it can be parked horizontally, with the front end against the pavement.

If you’re looking for something with more space, the Renault Zoe is an incredibly compact model that does not compromise on design or technology features.

Electric Renault Zoe

The fully electric Renault Zoe offers a range of 245 miles on a single charge, so you shouldn’t need to worry about charging the car too often, especially if you are only making short journeys.

The interior does not compromise on features, with an integrated 9.3” touchscreen and satellite navigation as standard as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity options.

Driver assistance features include rear parking sensors, cruise control and an optional rear parking camera on the GT Line models.

The Renault Zoe is also packed with safety features, including Active Emergency Braking System, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist and Traffic Sign Recognition, making it easy to navigate complex city streets.

Compact SEAT Mii City Car

Another compact hatchback option is the SEAT Mii, an electric model suitable for navigating tight city streets with ease as well as slotting easily into parking spaces.

Navigability should never be an issue with the SEAT Mii due to the small footprint and integrated rear parking sensors.

There are plenty of driver assist features that come as standard with the SEAT Mii, including Lane Asist and Traffic Sign Recognition.

With a range of up to 222 miles (purely city driving) or 120 miles if you are planning longer, more rural journeys, the SEAT Mii won’t give you range anxiety but will provide a nippy option for city driving.

If you are looking for a compact city car, give Dales of Cornwall a call to see how we can help you find your ideal next car. Whether you are looking for traditional petrol or diesel engines, or you want to explore electric options, we can help.
