City Cars are intended to perform best in urban areas - these vehicles are nippy, agile and funky, perfect for tight spaces and manoeuvring into narrow parking spaces. So, if you spend most of your driving time zipping around town and mainly conduct shorter journeys, this type of car is ideal. Don't expect a lot of space inside, although these types of car are cleverly designed to maximise area inside. Fuel economy is usually very good and they're reasonably cheap to purchase - and of course, lease. Leading models include the Smart Fortwo and Renault Twizy.
