Citroën has a long history of making popular small cars, with 2CV, manufactured from 1948 until 1990, being the most iconic. While 2CV – the original supermini – has become a modern classic, Citroën have continued to produce quality small cars which are proving popular for their practicality, great fuel economy, low emissions and stylish good looks.
The small car has increased in popularity, especially with rising fuel prices and an increase in urban living across the UK. With most small cars now able to carry five adults in comfort, they are becoming popular for families as well as singles and couples. Improvements in safety features in small car models - such as three-point seat belts for all passengers and multiple airbags - mean more drivers are feeling comfortable and assured in small cars, dispelling the myth that more metal always means more safety.
