When it comes to cars, bigger doesn’t always mean better. Let’s take a look at the best small cars 2018 has to offer.
2018 BMW M2
For $55,400 sportscar enthusiasts will be delighted to take the latest BMW M2 for a test drive. Stacked with a 3.0 liter, 365 horsepower turbocharged engine and an optional 7-speed manual transmission, the M2 is capable of going from 0 to 60 MPH in just 4.0 seconds. With superb grippy tires and a sensitive braking system, the M2 handles like a dream.
With an updated infotainment system, a revised dashboard design, and new LED head and taillight designs, the 2018 M2 continues to impress on the tech side of things as well. While taller drivers may find the seats to be slightly less comfortable than from what we’ve come to expect from BMW, we still recommend the BMW M2 for both leisure drivers and daily commuters.
2019 Hyundai Veloster
While its strange layout, with two doors on the passenger’s side and one on the driver’s side, has inspired some mixed reviews, the Veloster makes up for its shortcomings in other departments. The 2019 model starts around $18,500 and has upgraded from the 1.6-liter engine to a 2.0-liter inline-four. If you can look past its slightly-bizarre appearance, you won’t be disappointed with this 147 horsepower beast.
2018 MINI Cooper SE Countryman All4
Whether it’s the improved interior or its signature sleek and stylish look, this hybrid is sure to exceed your expectations. Our only complaint is that the electric range only reaches 12 miles, but this shouldn’t be a problem for city drivers. Additionally, when compared to similar cars, we would like to see the $36,800 price tag a lower a bit.
2018 Honda Fit
While the bright yellow exterior might deter you, we would highly recommend giving the Honda Fit some serious consideration. Not only is the price surprisingly low at $17,080, but this vehicle has an extremely efficient powertrain.
