What we are looking for

  • Our cities are getting busier all the time, so the humble city car has a tougher job than ever to make urban driving a pleasurable experience.
  • We’re looking for cars that are easy to see out of, to make weaving through rush-hour traffic and winding up multistorey car parks that bit easier. Light, precise controls are important, too, as is a comfortable ride, especially at low speeds, because we all know how terrible British town roads are. Enough poke to cope with motorway driving is a must.
  • Inside, we’re looking for generous space and reasonable quality. All this needs to come at a competitive price, especially for those buying on finance.
