In many cities parking spaces come at a premium, so you only want to purchase one small space. This small space will end up dictating what vehicle you purchase, so we’ve rounded up some great candidates.

Must-haves

Arm yourself with knowledge as you shoot for your vehicle, and keep these things in mind:

  • The vehicle needs to be small
  • The vehicles must be easy to maneuver
  • The steering should be responsive and smooth

Top five list

Before heading out to the shop for cars, you may want to check out the following on these vehicles:

  • Hyundai Accent: This compact car is ideal for maneuvering in tight spaces. Backing up is made easy thanks to the ample amount of windows, and even parallel parking is doable in this vehicle. The 2012 model features a new, sportier look, as well as new standard features, and a new engine. It should be noted that the Kelley Blue Book points how quickly the engine response, and the comfort of the seats.

  • Chevrolet Cruze: Not only will you be able to get this car into the tightest of parking spots, but you will also love the fact that attention has been paid to the details. The car is meant to have a refined look so it feels like a luxurious compact car.

  • Dodge Dart: The Dodge Dart marks the company's first offering in the compact car class since the Neon. The car has been made to be "user-friendly" in that all the features are easy to understand. It holds its own next to the Honda Civic and Ford Focus, offers great fuel efficiency, and competitive prices.

  • Toyota Corolla: The Toyota Corolla is great for those looking for a reliable vehicle with a proven track record. Kelley Blue Book points out that this sedan is among the highest selling in all of America. It went through a re-design in 2011 but even still it isn't overly impressive in the looks department. Instead the focus is on how it performs and its great resale value.

  • Mitsubishi Lancer: Just because you want to be able to fit into those tight spots doesn't mean compact cars are the only option. Instead this sporty looking vehicle will give you the power you want, sleek lines, a large line-up of features, and responsive steering.

Final thoughts

There’s no reason a tiny parking spot should intimidate you, especially if you’ve got the perfect sized vehicle to fit in the spot.
