Urban-Friendly Cars to Excite Your City Drives

Driving in the city limits is a whole different ballgame than a highway commute. It can be made easier by choosing the right vehicle. A preferable city car is generally small, easily maneuverable, and has a balance between peppy performance and good fuel economy.

The best vehicles for city driving are usually small cars, however subcompact SUVs are equally viable, and an argument can be made supporting some compact SUVs as well. More electric cars and plug-in hybrids are starting to show up in the market, and these vehicles are also excellent choices for city driving. This is especially true if your city has access to a decent public charging network.
