What alternatives should I consider to a used Smart Fortwo Coupe city-car?
If you want a stylish city car, then there are a number of rivals to the Smart Fortwo that are much smarter buys, principally because they’re just as easy to park, but they have the added practicality of back seats.
The Volkswagen Up is one such rival that manages to maximise interior space while being compact on the outside. It’s also much better to drive, can be had with rear doors and it has space for two extra passengers.
The Fiat 500 is a cute little car with lots of retro styling cues from the classic 1950s original. It isn’t the best car to drive and the driving position is awkward for taller drivers, but it is cheap and there are lots of used examples on the market, so finding a good one is easy.
