8 Easiest Cars To Park

No, it’s not your imagination (or that your driving skills are taking a nose dive) – parking your car’s becoming harder because spaces are getting smaller all the time. From tighter on-street parking to stingy multi-storeys, motorists are definitely feeling the squeeze. In this article I’ve put together a rundown of the easiest cars to park (in no particular order) when it comes to parking in small spaces.

Toyota iQ

It may be just three metres long, but the Toyota iQ is deceptively spacious inside. It’s a great city car that’s cheap to run, plus many models are available with that ever-handy parking sensor, making it even easier to maneuver into tight spaces.

Ford S-Max

If you want maximum room for minimum footprint, choose the Ford S-Max – you can comfortably fit seven people inside, but it still comes up shorter than a Mondeo. This class-leading MPV is also great fun to drive, easy to park with smooth steering and a powerful engine.

Toyota Verso

At only four metres long, the Toyota Verso’s one of the hardest working compact MPVs around. Comfortable to drive and offering great performance, it’s also ultra-reliable and is one of the safest cars on the road. Among the best cars for parking Toyota Verso takes 3rd place.

Hyundai i20

With low running costs, this car’s the ultimate affordable supermini. You can choose from either two-door or four-door versions, and the Hyundai i20 is also backed with appealing safety features like stability control and six airbags as standard.

Skoda Yeti

Frequently named as one of the USA’s easiest car to drive, the Skoda Yeti combines all the plus points of a 4×4 with the practicality of a hatchback. It’s also been awarded a reassuring five-star rating in EuroNCAP crash tests. It is safe to drive and easy to park.

Mazda6

One of the shortest and most affordable family-sized cars you’ll find, the Mazda6 is a great looking car that also offers a responsive drive. And that all-important power steering lends an extra hand when it comes to maneuvering into a parking spot.

Honda Jazz

Practical and versatile, the Honda Jazz offers an impressively spacious interior considering its compact side. It’s probably one of the easiest cars to park!

Mini, all models

It’s no surprise that one of the smallest makes of car on the market has made it in to our list. Every model of Mini is a perfectly proportioned, nippy city run-around that can squeeze its way into almost any space.

Mini Cooper is my favourite car of all time, simply because it is not only a unique car but the history and iconic nature of the Mini is something I love.
