When our families are growing, we can never seem to have enough space in our vehicles. Preparing for holiday trips is usually a nightmare as we try to fit children, dogs, suitcases and beach paraphernalia into our family car sometimes having to resort to buying a roof rack or box to accommodate bikes and scooters, but as our children leave home some of us find that the advantages of running a smaller vehicle outweigh the need for a larger one.
As many people are now looking to reduce their monthly outgoings downsizing your car is one way to achieve this as a smaller car will generally be cheaper to run. Vauxhall have recently launched their Corsa-e so if you want to make even greater savings a switch to an electric car is a wise move.
Many of the new compact car manufacturers have realised that people still need to do shopping, so a bigger boot space has been a recent welcome feature in this sector.
If you are looking for a smaller car that still has a premium quality feel, then the Audi A1 is a must buy as it combines style and power but obviously with a higher price tag.
