The Top 5 City Runaround Cars in 2017

Here is a list of The Top 5 City Runaround Cars in 2017 in Europe.

There are few markets as fiercely competitive as the city runaround one. Whilst it is good that there is such competition and so many fantastic automobiles to choose from, it can also make it tricky and time-consuming to identify which is the best investment. For those seeking a practical and reliable car to nip around the town complete with great handling, a range of impressive features and sleek design, you cannot go wrong with any of these.

Skoda Citigo

The Citigo has emerged as a class leader and it is easy to see why once you get behind the wheel of one. It is surprisingly spacious inside for a city car, which makes it an ideal choice for families that run plenty of errands around town. It also looks smart, is cheap to buy and run, and offers very low emissions resulting in low road tax.

Hyundai i10

The Hyundai i10 is very easy on the eyes, but it also boasts a surprising amount of space in the cabin and boot. For families, you will struggle to find a better city car than this and particularly if you regularly have five occupants as this features a 5th seatbelt which can be rare. The i10 is also affordable, manages over 65mpg and has low road tax.

Citroen C1

One of the key selling points of the Citroen C1 is the fact that the low emissions result in free road tax. In addition to the low emissions, it also offers fuel economy that does not drop below 65mpg, so it is very cheap to run. It is also a fun and easy drive with plenty of scope for personalisation. Places like Robins & Day offer a range of finance options to make this a manageable way to pick one up brand new.


Fans of sportier vehicles may want to take a closer look at the SEAT Mii, which is very similar to the other cars on this list but offers a slightly sportier style that will appeal to some. It returns an impressive almost 69mpg and free road tax, but it does only have four seats. There are a few cool different trims to consider, so this may be better suited to young professionals in the city than families.

Vauxhall Viva

In the 60’s, the Viva was very popular and this new five-seater certainly lives up to expectations. As with all good city cars, it is affordable to purchase, cheap to run and great fun to drive. Its affordability makes it very popular with young professionals, but families will also benefit from having 5 seats and the interior space.
