3 hot city cars for 2015Back

City cars have become one of the most popular cars on the market, mainly because they’re cheap to buy, cheap to run and kind to the environment – three of the most important credentials when considering any new car.

This year, there’s a host of new city and small cars set to take the market by storm, so we’ve picked out three of our favourites to shout about!

FordKaConceptFord Ka (late 2015)

Look out for the all-new Ford Ka coming out later this year. We’ve been told that the production car will remain very close to concept with prices from around £8,000 for the entry-level model. Unlike the present model, the new Ford Ka will be a global car that’s sold around the world. Built using architecture from the current Ford Fiesta, the new Ka will only be available as a 5 door car as opposed to the current 3 door model and it is hoped the new model will rival competitors such as the Skoda Citigo and the Hyundai i10. Space will play a major role in the new model together with low running costs. Ford has not yet revealed the engine line-up but we’re predicting the existing 1.0-litre 75bhp version powering the Fiesta and other Fords will be the most popular. The current Ford Ka will remain on sale right up to the switchover, so if you’re a fan of the Fiat 500 derived present model, you should be able to grab yourself a great deal on a used model.

VauxhallVivaVauxhall Viva (spring 2015)

Due to go on sale to the public this spring, the Vauxhall Viva is set to cost buyers around £7500. The new model will come with five doors and one engine option. It will seat 4 occupants comfortably and will come with a choice of 10 exterior colours and a selection of 14-inch to 16-inch wheels. The Viva will be powered by GM’s new 1.0-litre, three cylinder, 74bhp Ecotec engine and a five-speed manual gearbox. The new Viva is built to offer its buyers “exceptional safety and comfort” and is packed with safety features such as electronic stability control, traction control and hill start assist. Further safety options available include lane departure warning, park assist. The Viva will also benefit from GM’s IntelliLink multimedia system, which integrates with Apple and Android smartphones.

HondaJazzHonda Jazz (summer 2015)

Due to hit the forecourts this summer, the brand new Honda Jazz is set to go on sale for a similar price to the current Jazz, so around £11,500, but the latest version will come with an increased length (15mm) and wheelbase (30mm), meaning a much roomier cabin for occupants. The new Jazz will replace its current popular car but will come with a new bodyshell and a more efficient 1.3-litre i-VTEC petrol engine with a six-speed manual gearbox or CVT automatic transmission. there will also be a hybrid version released later this year with a 1.5-litre engine and electric motor combined to produce 133bhp. Front suspension in the new Jazz has been redesigned to improve ride comfort and refinement and Honda’s ‘magic seats’ will remain intact, to allow for the rear seats to be folded down flat or the seat base to be raised. The Jazz will compete with city car rivals such as the Volkswagen Up! and the Ford Fiesta for a coveted position in the small car sector.
