Top 5 city cars

City cars, also known as urban cars or A-segment, are small vehicles that are intended for use primarily in urban areas. This, however, does not mean that the vehicles cannot hold their own outside urban centres. Modern city cars feature advanced designs and engine capacities that can handle the rigours of modern transportation. Read the top five city cars in UK that epitomise easy-to-use urban transportation.

Best 5 city cars

1. Hyundai i10

The Hyundai i10 is craftily designed with high seating position and an upright body that is especially popular with the more mature drivers. Its super-light steering, ease of parking and an optional automatic gearbox make this a truly user friendly city car. If you are looking for a cheap city car with an even lower running cost, then the Hyundai i10 might be what you need.

The car comes with a 1-litre, three cylinder engine, stop and start technology that allows for minimal CO2 emission. Minimal emissions usually means you will get free road tax. The Hyundai i10 sells at a typical price of between £3,500 and £9,500 and also comes with a reassuring 5-year warranty.

2. Toyota Aygo

The Toyota Aygo is a masterfully designed city car that proves minimalist design doesn’t have to be miserable. It features a clever pared-back design and stylish, bare metal interior trim that makes it not only cheap to build, but also lighter and economical to use. The city car has room for four people inside, but with a tiny boot.

It is light weight and tackles corners far better than many drivers anticipate. Its 1-litre, three-cylinder engine and pop-out rear windows add to its charm. The car sells new or used at a typical price of between £3,00 and £11,000.

3. Peugeot 107

Although the Peugeot 107 is essentially the same car as the Toyota Aygo, it features on this list owing to its unique, stylish design. Like the Toyata Aygo, the Peugeot 107 come with either three or five doors. It, however, is available in three trim levels that all feature power steering, ABS brakes and a CD plater with AUX sockets. Buy the Peugeot 107 new or used at between £3,000 and £10,000.

4. Fiat 500

The Fiat 500 is indeed an attractive little car. It features an adorable mix and match design of high-quality interior decorations and retro styling that give it a special appeal. Added to this, the city car features a TwinAir unit that offers the lowest CO2 emissions for petrol engines in its category. Its 500C convertible version offers yet another charming city car option. Buy the car new or used for a price between £5,500 and £15,000 at major auto stores.

5. Citroen C1

The Citroen C1 closes our list of 5 best city cars in UK. This car is similar to the Peugeot 107, but it is also available with a 1.4-litre diesel engine. It features minor, distinct trim variation that set it apart from the Peugeot 107. The vehicle’s good performance and manoeuvring make it worth its cost of between £3,000 and £10,500.


While city cars might be small and strange to some people, the cars are arguably the ultimate cars for transportation within urban areas. They offer quick and efficient transportation with a nimbleness in traffic that saves not just time, but money too. They also offer freedom from urban parking anxieties because of their ease to park in crowded urban centres.
