10 cool small carsBack

Small cars have become extremely popular as people seek to buy vehicles that are both practical and fuel efficient and with current competition in the market high, manufacturers have worked hard to make their smallest cars as attractive as possible to buyers.

Trusted Dealers takes a look below at 10 of the coolest small cars currently available.

MiniCooper1MINI Cooper (2007-)

Inspiration for the influx of cool cars is the British-built MINI Cooper. Originally created in 1959, the MINI stands the test of time remaining one of the most popular small cars currently on the market. Favoured for its quirky, practical interior and its excellent performance, you can’t get much cooler than a MINI.

Fiat 500 (2008-)

The Fiat 500 was first produced in 2008 and took the market by storm. Offering retro styling, a fun-filled cabin and excellent fuel credentials, the 500 has challenged the MINI from the outset when it comes to price. If you’re looking for a cute little car that drives reasonably well and is affordable, it’s an ideal choice.

VWBeetleVolkswagen Beetle (2012-)

Originally produced back in 1933, the new Volkswagen Beetle is arguably closer in styling to its ancestors. It’s an attractive, retro-looking car which is neat and tidy while sporting the prestigious VW badge. There’s even a Beetle Cabriolet for those adventurous types who really want to have it all.

Hyundai i20 (2014-)

The second-generation Hyundai i20 was launched in August 2014 and proved to be even better than its predecessor. Offering a spacious interior, the i20 is packed full of standard equipment whilst remaining a neat and practical car. Choose a petrol version to benefit from great refinement. If you’re looking for a spacious, well-priced supermini, the i20 could be the one.

SuzukiSwiftSuzuki Swift (2010-)

Now in its third generation, the Suzuki Swift remains a highly stylish and affordable supermini. Originally built in 1983, the Swift has evolved into a thrifty, smart-looking car that handles well and is keenly priced against competitors. Furthermore, it offers plenty of equipment as standard and space inside is generous. If you’re looking for an affordable stylish car, the Swift is a great option.

Maxda 2 (2014-)

The increasingly popular Mazda 2 is an excellent choice of cool car for those looking for driver comfort and a practical, easy to use cabin. Choose the 1.5-litre petrol version to benefit from excellent fuel economy while performance remains strong. Furthermore, the Mazda 2 is fun to drive in comparison to other rivals and is one of the better options in the supermini class.

AudiA1Audi A1 (2010-)

The Audi A1 is stylish and cool, and highly sought after by those who seek a luxury city car. The A1 takes all the qualities from its older brothers and packs them into a very chic, small hatchback that continues to be a real winner with buyers.

Citroen DS3 (2010-)

A stylish design and large amount of customisation options are what makes the Citroen DS3 really stand out from the crowd. Furthermore, there’s a DS3 Cabriolet version if you really want to look cool. The DS3 is a well-priced, high performing car that’s perfect for those who seek style and finesse coupled with an affordable price tag.

HondaJazzHonda Jazz (2013-)

Now in its third generation, the Honda Jazz has proved its popularity globally, reaching sales of 5 million in 2013. When it comes to driver’s satisfaction, the Jazz is always near the top. Couple this with its high reputation for reliability and you’ve got a super cool little car. You’ll pay a higher price tag, but the good news is the Honda Jazz will keep its value when it comes to resale.

Alfa Romeo MiTo (2008-)

For something a little bit different from the ordinary that is sure to stand out from the crowd, choose the Italian-made Alfa-Romeo MiTo. Opt for the tiny two-cylinder TwinAir engine to benefit from excellent fuel economy, or for something faster why not choose the powerful 170PS 1.4 turbo. There’s something for everyone in the MiTo line-up and the best thing is that it shares some of its styling with the 8C supercar!
