Small engined cars give a lot of bang for their buck. Here are some things we love about smaller engined cars that we think you’ll love too.
It’s a sad truth that many people feel that small engined cars - anything below a 1.4L - are only a stop gap until you can afford a bigger car.
Actually, they’re a really fun and economical ride and there’s a lot to love about them at any time of your life!
Here are our five reasons we love a small engined car:
FUEL EFFICIENTThis is definitely one of the best features of a small engined car! Fuel takes up a major portion of your vehicle’s running cost - 40% - 45%, according to EQSTRA Fleet Management, so saving money on petrol is a major plus.
LOWER MAINTENANCE COSTSSince the parts are both smaller and cheaper, you’ll end up saving big on maintaining a small car.
ALL THE FEATURESNowadays, small cars come with a lot of standard features that make them more than the compromise they used to be. You really get a lot of car for a good price.
