What happens when you live in a big, crowded, traffic-filled city, but the thought of using public transportation with all the other smelly poors makes you throw up in your mouth a little bit? You need a city car!

Owning a car in the big city can be rather tricky and expensive, to say nothing of the abuse that it tends to pile on said car. If you're gonna do it, you need the right one. Ideally that will be something small, easy to park, and reasonably good on gas, but more avant garde choices can work as well.

That's our question of the day: What's the greatest city car of all time?

I'm partial to the Mini Cooper myself, but I'm a little biased because I own one. It's great for navigating tight city streets and I can park it anywhere, plus it's actually fun to drive when I get out of the city. The classic Cooper is even better as a city car since it's so much tinier than the newer ones.


Your turn. What car works best in a big metropolis?
