US: which is the best city car?

Contrary to popular belief, living in a big urban area doesn’t necessarily rule out the necessity of a car. Statement to that is any city’s rush hour traffic, when in some cases millions of car clog the streets.

What you do need – when living in a city – is a car that’s small enough to park anywhere, nimble and also spacious – you need it to carry lots of stuff. So, Cars.com has decided to compile a list of what they consider to be the best 10 cars for city residents. The car on the top of the list is the 2014 Kia Soul – thanks to its ride-and-handling, convenience features and Android-based UVO multimedia system.

“Urban denizens will appreciate the sheer number of options (including ventilated front seats and panoramic moonroof) in the Soul, a rarity among small hatchbacks,” the site notes. “Affordable and city-friendly need not mean Spartan, and the 2014 Soul proves it.”

The rest of the list is made up of the 2015 Honda Fit; 2014 Toyota Prius C; 2014 BMW i3; 2014 Lexus CT 200h; 2015 Nissan Leaf; 2014 Jeep Wrangler; 2014 Scion xB; 2014 Buick Encore and 2014 Scion iQ. Besides the surprise introduction of the Wrangler off-roader, we should note the absence of smart’s fortwo model. The team complained of many shortcomings when it comes to the car – including a bad transmission and worse than expected fuel economy.
