Our roundup of the very best city cars for 2022
City cars have always provided great value for money, and all their latest technological developments (coupled with an increasingly competitive marketplace) mean that they’re more reliable and desirable than ever. They’re really cheap to service, fuel and insure, making them the perfect choice for city goers.
We’ve always admired the practicality and ingenuity of small city cars here at Intack Self Drive. So, we’ve compiled a list of the very best city cars that you can purchase right now, including one which you can get a hold of right here through our car hire service…
Toyota Aygo X
Kicking off our list, we have the newest incarnation of the Toyota Aygo - the X. Toyota has combined its pint-sized city car with the styling of a crossover to achieve a stunning combination of robust and stylish car design. The X sits a bit higher up than the previous versions of the Aygo, which gives the driver a much better view of the road. Plus, this striking car stands out with its SUV style bumpers, without compromising that unmistakably Aygo look and feel.
The Aygo X features a vibrant and spacious interior, and some of the top-spec exclusive models feature a seven-inch touchscreen with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and a rear camera, so there’s no shortage of gadgets to keep you and your passengers entertained as you zip through the city streets!
Next on our list we have the ever-reliable (but grammatically chaotic) Volkswagen up! The up! has a driving manner about it which other vehicles in the city car arena struggle to match. It handles like a dream, and the reliability of the car is second to none. With a clean design and suave all-glass tailgate, if you want a city car with real performance, the up! GTI with 113bhp offers pocket-sized thrills that you’ll struggle to find in a lot of the cars that populate the small city car genre. A top car from a top manufacturer, the only way is up! (Well, we had to.)
Quite simply the best of the best, and our city car of choice here at Intack Self Drive. The Fiat 500 has long held the title of best city car thanks to its funky and unique design and its easy drivability. When compared to its predecessors, the driving position has been immensely improved. Fiat has increased the internal width of the cabin by approximately 42mm, and increased the headroom by a further 10mm, giving the driver's space a slightly less cramped feel than that of older models.
If we’re being honest, the Fiat 500 is nothing short of a great looking city car that delivers plenty of fun with an upmarket feel that more than justifies its position as the most reliable and enjoyable city car on the market.
