Though SUVs are a huge favorite among the masses, many people prefer to seek comfort in the confines of a compact car. Instead of the powerful and massive SUVs, the snuggly interior of compact cars allows the individual to experience comfort while driving. Here are some of the most efficient and comfortable compact cars you would come across.
Volkswagen up! Hatchback
Mechanically identical to the Skoda Citigo and the SEAT Mii, the Volkswagen up! Hatch back happens to be shortest of the three by a very small margin.Volkswagen up! Hatch back when measured from nose to tail measures up to 3,540mm, as compared to the 3,557mm SEAT Mii and the 3,563mm Skoda Citigo.
As you can see, the difference is a mere 23mm – which is less than an inch. No matter what the choice, all these cars fall under the same segment and have a boot you could not expect to be bigger in a car of this kind along with space for four adult people. Also available is the electric Volkswagen e-up!But the other comes powered with a 1.0-litre petrol engine. A motorway cruise is possible with care, and city drives are good and smooth.
Fiat 500 hatchback
For a totally retro chic appeal and looks, nothing comes on par with the Fiat 500 hatchback. End to end measurements of 3,571mm enables the car to provide compact dimensions that are important for parking spots in places and cobble stoned cities like Manchester and Milan. Though the Fiat 500 hatchback is a compact car, the interior is surprisingly just roomy enough for four adults. The practicality is slightly hampered due to the lack of 5 door model. The boot space can be expanded to 550 liters by folding the back seat from a mere 185 liters.The car is easy to park, with full out extended wheels that are pushed out wards, and good visibility. Moving through tight spaces is easy with the city mode in the vehicle that makes the steering ultra-light weight and input sensitive.
Kia Picanto hatchback (2011-2017)
Moving towards the Kia Picanto Hatchback, it can be safely said that it is one of the really useable compact city cars that comes with three door or five door models and has enough space for 5 adults. The space and functional doors are made possible due to the size of the Kia Picanto Hatchback which is a compact car that measures 3,595mm long from end to end. Additional features include a light steering and upright driving.
