Compact Vehicles are perfect for getting around a busy city, squeezing into small parking spots and have surprisingly a good amount of storage. Right now on the road, the three compact kings of the road are the Mini Cooper, Toyota Prius, and the classic Volkswagen Beetle. If you’re not convinced yet then read below!
Mini Coopers are at the top of compact cars. They are known for their amazing handling, potent engine, and have a large amount of room in the cabin space. The 2019 Mini Coopers is fairly inexpensive compared to other 2019 cars and start around $22,000. If you have a need for speed you can get the engine from a 3-cylinder to a 4-cylinder turbo. You can also get it in a convertible top and you have the option of 2 or 4 doors. Not only is a Mini Cooper a great compact car, but it also has a sporty vibe to it and is easily customizable.
Toyota is known for its line of Hybrid vehicles that are taking over the automotive industry. Their claim to fame was when they released the Prius which is still today the best-selling hybrid. If you love to easily park in small spots, produce fewer emissions, and saving money at the gas pump then this is the car for you. The Prius line has been further extended by the Prius Prime, Prius C, and the Prius V since its the number one selling hybrid. A 2019 Prius starts around $23,000 but saves you a lot of money at the gas station since it gets 59 miles per gallon. The newer models even have all-wheel drive and more cargo space. What more could you want out of a car?
We’ve all heard the phrase “Slug Bug Yellow” followed by a little punch on the arm, it’s a classic road trip game that you played when you were younger. Now it’s time to drive one because they are a great compact car. The Beetle has a comfortable ride, user-friendly tech, and handles the road with ease. This car is slightly cheaper than the Mini Cooper and Prius starting at $20,000. It also has a turbocharged 4-cylinder and 174 horsepower behind it.
