Are you looking to invest in a small, compact vehicle? You may want to consider subcompact cars.
Subcompact is an American term used to describe cars which are smaller than a standard compact vehicle, yet larger than a micro car. In the UK, buyers largely associate the term with superminis.
There’s a lot of benefits that come from choosing a subcompact car, but with so many available on the market, how do you know which is right for you? Below, you’ll discover 3 of the best subcompact cars to buy used.
1. Volkswagen Polo
The Volkswagen Polo has been a consistently highly-rated small car over the years and it isn’t hard to see why. What’s great about this little model, is the fact it manages to include all of the key features you’d expect to find in the larger Volkswagen Golf, just in a more compact package.
It comes in a range of engine sizes to suit all buyers. One of its key benefits is its low running costs. With the price of fuel constantly seeming to rise, these days buyers do look for a car that’s going to be economical to run.
Perhaps the only drawback to this car is it isn’t very fun to drive. It’s designed more for practicality and easy driving so if you are seeking something a little more exciting to drive, this may not be the right model for you.
Due to the popularity of the Volkswagen Polo, you can find it at really affordable prices at used car dealerships.
2. Ford B-Max
Ford is renowned for its reliability and high-quality vehicles and the B-Max is no exception. If you’re looking for something a little more unique and fun, this is the model for you.
There’s a few things that set this little car apart from its competitors. Perhaps the main unique feature is its sliding doors. This makes it incredibly easy to get out of and makes it really practical for families. There’s also plenty of space inside thanks to its boxy design.
It’s not all about practicality however. This clever little car boasts impressive handling and provides a smooth, quiet ride. It’s fun to drive; whether you’re driving about town or cruising down the motorway. It’s also got a good range of engines to choose from. However, if you want the best, the 1.0 litre EcoBoost petrol engine is the one you’ll want to opt for.
If it’s style and quality you’re looking for, the Hyundai ix20 is one of the best cars you can invest in. It boasts a versatile interior and is remarkably great to drive. Like the Ford B-Max, this model is a great choice for family’s due to its deceptively spacious and practical design.
It offers a high driving position, giving you perfect visibility of the road ahead. While initially designed with town and city driving in mind, the car is super-comfortable, making it ideal for longer trips too.
What really sets this car apart however, is its style. It was created by the designer of the Audi TT, so you know you’re getting a high-end looking vehicle.
Overall, there’s a lot of subcompact cars available to buy, but the 3 above are currently rated some of the best. Consider which features are important to you and where you plan on driving the car before deciding which one is right for you.
