67 Conveniently Compact Cars

From Tiny Tourist Autos to Miniature Electric Trucks

— June 5, 2013 — Autos
For those of you who drive to work every day, you know that the size of your car can make all the difference when it comes to traffic and parking, which is why these conveniently compact cars are making the commute to work much easier and less painstaking.

While having a large and luxurious car is a great way to showoff your love for automobiles to others, the expensive maintenance cost and difficult ability to navigate through tight spaces makes them more of a burden than something useful. From super small egg-shaped automobiles to fashionably eco-friendly vehicles, these conveniently compact cars will make driving through cities and parking in small spaces much more convenient and easily accomplished.
