The Best City Cars for the Cardiff Commute

Cardiff is a wonderful city that currently finds itself in an incredible time of change, especially when it comes to its business community. From the regeneration of the city centre to the influx of big brands such as the BBC choosing to base their headquarters in Central Square, Cardiff is well on its way to achieving its ambition of being a leading European city. 

For this reason, Cardiff’s city centre is experiencing an increased number of commuters driving to it by the day, welcoming professionals from the outskirts of Cardiff, the Valleys, Bridgend, the Vale of Glamorgan and even Bristol for work purposes.

As a result, more and more professionals working in Cardiff are exploring the idea of car leasing, requiring reliable, economical vehicles to get them to and from the office. If you find yourself in need of a nice vehicle to take on busy roads such as the M4, Newport Road and the A470, below are a few suitable options. 

BMW 1 series 

The BMW 1 Series is the perfect combination of good looks and efficiency, making it a great option for commuters that desire an attractive vehicle that will not cost a fortune to run. Plus, it is not just a pretty car to look at. On the inside, drivers can enjoy a wealth of top features. From the improved infotainment system and parking sensors to the heated seats and audio streaming option, driving to work in one of these will no doubt be the highlight of the day! 

Vauxhall Mokka X 

The Mokka X is a stylish yet compact SUV, possessing all the charms of a larger car but still appropriate for city driving. What’s more is that this vehicle comes in a range of options. Customers can choose from petrol and diesel engines, front and four-wheel drive, and a manual or an automatic gearbox, meaning there is a Mokka X out there for every Cardiffian! 

Fiat 500

The Fiat 500 is the ultimate city car, being small, yet perfectly formed. First gracing our roads in 2007, the retro-style vehicle has become synonymous with being a small, cheap, utilitarian car. This is what makes it a perfect car to take on the roads of Cardiff with, being nippy, easy to run and just as easy on the eye. Plus, with its neat, compressed design, drivers will have no bother fitting in the car parking spaces of John Lewis, St Davids and the likes.

Suzuki Swift Hatch 

Here, we have another small hatch; the Suzuki Swift Hatch. Credited for it fuel efficiency, the Suzuki Swift Hatch is, in our opinion, one of the best cars for professionals looking to keep travel costs low. But, for a small car, it is surprisingly roomy inside! And, with the new model, its charming, chirpy character is preserved, being just as impressive as the designs of yesteryear! 

Range Rover Evoque 

While Range Rovers are thought to be colossal in size, the beautiful Evoque is one of Land Rover’s smaller creations. As well as being more suited to city driving, the Evoque is also a lot cheaper to lease and run, being a vehicle that has become highly in-demand across South Wales. Packed with impressive tech features, the Evoque basically works as an office on wheels, allowing drivers to join conference calls, view emails on screen or just blast out their favourite song from their Apple Music account to get them in the mood for a big day.
