City driving can often be quite unnerving. The thought of whizzing in and out of traffic, squeezing your car into a tight parking space, and making sure you're  going the right way down a one-way street - all whilst navigating yourself through unfamiliar streets - sends many motorists into a state of fear. At Evans Halshaw we don't think driving should be a chore, so we've compiled a list of our favourite city cars that put the fun into urban driving. The five models below are equipped with the latest safety systems, innovative technology and economical engines, all whilst being small (but stylish)!

Vauxhall VIVA

Available in four different model lines, the entry level VIVA is equipped with a bountiful amount of standard equipment and all models are powered by a range of efficient engines, making it affordable to run.

Safety features such as rear park assist and hill-start assist will not only make city driving easier but will eliminate the risk of potential and unwelcomed bumps (we know how often these occur when you're zipping around busy city streets!) And although the compact dimensions of the VIVA make it easy to park, you can never be too careful!

The Vauxhall VIVA is also available with Vauxhall OnStar - otherwise known as your 'personal onboard assistant'. The innovative system exclusive to Vauxhall carries out functions such as Automatic Crash Response, Stolen Vehicle Assistance and many others - meaning you are never alone whilst driving!
