Top three city cars

When looking for a new car, most motorists want a model which is fun yet practical, and, with the price of fuel rising ever higher, one that’s fuel-efficient to boot. City cars fit the bill perfectly, and as well as being cheap to run, cars like this can get really cheap car insurance quotes too. Ideal for students, young professionals or anyone who only wants to drive short distances, city cars can make motoring affordable, but which are the best ones currently on show in car showrooms across Europe?

1. Fiat Panda – the rebooted model of this Italian classic has proved to be phenomenally popular with motorists and with good reason. Its engine makes it go like a hatchback, it has plenty of space for passengers and in the boot, plus its looks help to make this model endearing. Great fuel economy also comes as standard with all models

2. Toyota Aygo – despite its size, four fully-grown adults can comfortable fit inside the Aygo. Aside from being spacious, it also looks great and the fuel economy is so high that it’s possible to drive 400 miles on a single tank of gas.

3. Peugeot 107 – like the Panda, this French model is perfect for people wanting to buy their first car for a number of reasons. Despite being cheap to buy, it comes equipped with a CD player, power steering and ABS brakes, looks great and has plenty of room. However, what makes the 107 stand out is fuel economy of 62.7mpg and CO2 emissions of just103g/km.
