The Best Compact Cars of 2018

The Best Compact Cars of 2018

Automaatic
March 15, 2018


This world is an interesting place; sometimes we like to think of it as a living organism that has got just enough for everyone’s needs as many great men have theorized. But really, without all the philosophy, have you ever taken some time to think of how great a place this would be if some cars actually occupied the amount of space that is meant to be occupied by one car? This we think is the rationale behind the manufacturing of compact cars.

You want to have a car that is roomy enough for you and a few friends or family, but small enough to comfortably drive around without having to worry about the wastage of resources that would come with having any additional volume to tag along. Owning a compact car is a lot like dating a supermodel who can conceive triplets, okay, perhaps it’s not too good an analogy. But we bet you get our point.

Yes, even in this crossover-crazed generation there are actually those among us who prefer to economize on car size, and boy is it a great thing. If you want to find out why hop into a Honda Civic, and you will soon have a new song to sing; a smaller thing can actually be a big deal!! Join us as we take a look at some of the best compact cars that 2018 has to offer.

What's great about the 2018 Honda Civic?

1

Sheriffs come and go but long live the Chief! This iconic car from Japan has for ages been the very definition of a compact car for many people. If memory serves us right, it could be for as long as honey has defined sweet. Even as the market continually becomes competitive, the Civic has held onto its crown with a gorilla-like grip. For 2018, a fastback design is here to give it an even sportier look as is an entertainment system that is adaptable to a customer-defined touch. This coupled with other amazing features introduced in 2017 makes it our favorite compact car, it should top your shopping list too. It has a starting MSRP of $18,840.

What does the 2018 Kia Soul offer?

0

The 2018 Soul will obviously receive a hearty welcome from many car shoppers. It gives you good value for your money with a starting MSRP of $16,200. It sports a generous amount of cargo space and has a roomy interior to go along with it. The consumption is an estimated 25 and 30 miles per gallon in the city and highway respectively.

3

What stands out about 2018 Volkswagen GTI?

0

While we do agree that the GTI has a starting price that is higher than many competing compact cars, you will be impressed with the perks it lets you enjoy. It is the car that you should consider if you are an enthusiastic driver who needs a sporty ride with the driving dynamics of a racing car. In addition, it offers comfort and a spacious cabin that boasts of a sleek infotainment system. For $26,415, you can enjoy lively acceleration and excellent handling on top of the obvious distinctiveness of a German machine.

How good is the 2018 Mazda 3?

0

There’s one thing about underdogs that makes them absolutely amazing, our expectations, and this is what Mazda has exceeded in the past few years. The 2018 Mazda 3 is here and with it comes athletic handling, an upscale interior, a friendly infotainment system and fuel economy that is sent from heaven. It starts at $18,095 and can comfortably seat five adults for a short trip during the weekend.

5

What about the 2018 Hyundai Elantra?

-1

The 2018 Hyundai Elantra makes its entry with some impressive features. It is not a performance car but do we really expect Madea to be an athlete while her purpose is to put a smile on our faces? What it lacks in performance, the Elantra makes up for in cargo space and a good number of miles on the gallon. With an MSRP that ranges between $16,950 and $24,350, you have yourself one of these.
