The Best Used City Car To Buy

  • Published: 30 December 2021

City cars are among the cheapest, most economical and smallest on our roads. Some of the very best can handle nipping around town but also going up and down the motorway occasionally and making lengthier trips. A lot even come with some of the most modern tech available in more luxury vehicles with the added bonus of comfort, space and style. So without further ado, here are our top used city cars that you should be considering.

1) Toyota Aygo

This little car certainly makes a statement with it’s quirky and unique design, all without compromising on the affordability of running costs. The build quality is excellent and feels very sturdy on the roads, so it’s perfect for a mixture of city and motorway driving, and is all wrapped up in a great value price tag.

2) Peugeot 108

This car shares its parts with the Toyota Aygo as well as the Citroen C1, which are both incredible city cars in their own respect. This is a great first time car as well as a city runaround due to its low insurance bracket, fuel efficient engine and great running costs. It also looks very neat, tidy and stylish.

3) Citroen C1

The Citroen C1 is ideally suited to life in town and, similar to the Toyota Aygo, has very distinctive styling on the road. Low CO2 emissions mean this car is free from road tax and as with the majority of smaller cars, it’s cheap to run too. The Citroen C1 comes available in both 3 and 5 door variants, making it a very versatile little vehicle that can take you from A to B in style.

4) Kia Picanto

This car is cheap to run, economical, spacious and packed full of up to date equipment. The light steering makes it a very fun and exciting car to drive and also easy to park due to its small turning circle. It’s not only ideal to run around town either, but can perform admirably on motorway journeys too 

5) SEAT Mii

Built by Volkswagen, the SEAT Mii has a sporty style taken from the Volkswagen UP! and Skoda Citigo. It’s 59 and 74 BHP variants make it nifty around town, and it’s three cylinder, 1 litre engine makes it very economical to drive. There is also now a SEAT Mii Electric version, which can give a reasonable 161 mile range, perfect for economical city driving.

6) Volkswagen UP!

Last but by no means least, this car is quite deceptive. It’s a comfortable and spacious city car that shares its parts with the best selling Volkswagen Golf. Running costs are low, and the car is well put together and reliable.
