Best Compact City Cars
As cars are becoming bigger and bigger, it’s great for large families or those who enjoy regular adventurers, but what if you need a more compact model and still want to take advantage of the technology and safety features associated with larger models?
The Ford range has something for everyone, whether you are in search of a compact or economical city car or need something that can accommodate up to 7 adults.
City driving is almost inevitable, whether you are regularly commuting or live in a city environment. Supermarkets are usually in or near a town or city so you are likely to want something compact enough to navigate carparks with ease as well.
The Ford Fiesta is one of the most popular models in the range, providing an economical and efficient way to travel around town or even further afield where necessary. With enough space to accommodate a small family without compromising on style of design, the Fiesta is popular among those who will be commuting during the week and partaking in family activities on a weekend, as well as first time drivers who find the Fiesta affordable and reliable.
Available in a range of different trims from Titanium to ST-Line and Vignale, for those who want additional comfort and style features.
There is no shortage of safety features when you opt for the Ford Fiesta, as all models come with the NCAP pack which includes Lane Keeping Alert and Lane Keeping Aid as well as a Speed Limiter. Other driver aids available include Traffic Sign Recognition, Active Park Assist and blind spot monitoring.
The Fiesta also includes plenty of technology features as standard, including an 8” touchscreen with SYNC voice control as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, allowing you to connect your smartphone and utilise the apps on the display.
The exterior design also does not disappoint, with either 16”, 17” or 18” alloy wheels and LED daytime running lights as standard. Power folding mirrors are available on Titanium models upwards.
The interior also has the perfect mix of comfort, style and functionality, with 290 litres of boot space, multi-adjustable driver seat and quilted upholstery on the Vignale models.
The Fiesta is also available as a mild hybrid which offers the performance you have come to know combined with additional efficiencies associated with Hybrid technology. The start-stop feature allows you to preserve fuel when you are idle in traffic or waiting at traffic lights and the Eco button helps you to save fuel by automatically adjusting the settings to provide a more economical drive.
The rolling resistance tyres are designed to improve efficiency by reducing the energy required to make the tyres roll, meaning less power is required to do the same job, saving fuel across the lifetime of the car.
If you are looking for something that can easily navigate city streets but has just that bit more space, the Ford EcoSport could be the choice for you. With a 355 litre boot, split-folding rear seats and ISOFIX car seat mounting points, the EcoSport is an ideal option for families alike.
With excellent fuel economy, the Ford EcoSport is not only fun to drive, but also affordable to run due to the economical features, including aerodynamics that occur from the raised stance.
The driver aids are designed to assist in busy environments where things are constantly changing.
The design of the Ford EcoSport is sporty and stylish with the interior providing an airy and spacious cabin that is also packed with plenty of technology features as standard, including cruise control and speed limiter.
