If you deliver pizzas, you want to be sure that your car is reliable and won’t break down. After all, you have hungry customers waiting, and you don’t want the pizza to get cold. You want low gas mileage, since the money you spend on fuel reduces your profits. It’s also important that your car handles well in bad weather, since you know that people are going to be ordering out more when the weather isn’t the best. You also probably don’t want to spend a whole lot of money on a used car, since, let’s face it, delivering pizzas isn’t exactly the most lucrative line of work.
With these considerations in mind, we’ve narrowed down the best pizza delivery cars to the Smart ForTwo, Audi S6 Avant Quattro, Wheego Whip, Toyota Corolla, and Toyota Yaris.
Smart ForTwo: This car doesn’t have a whole lot of room for your pizzas – you’re probably going to have to use the passenger seat. But this is an amazingly maneuverable car, and perfect for cities where it can be hard to find a place to park – you can pull into a pretty small space with the Smart ForTwo.
Audi S6 Avant Quattro: The Audi S6 Avant Quattro is perfect for people who love to drive, and it will get you around quickly, with great handling and acceleration. There’s plenty of space for your pizzas, and you’ll appreciate the heated seats in the cold weather. Even with all the features of this car, you’ll still be able to find a used one at a decent price.
Wheego Whip: This is about the size of a Smart car, and not all that exciting to look at, but it will get you in and out of tight parking situations. You’ll also get great mileage from this electric car. The only downside is that they’re not overly common, so if you want one, you might have to do some heavy-duty shopping.
Toyota Corolla: The Corolla has long been known for its reliability, which is very important if you’re going to get those pizzas delivered before they get cold. It’s also easy on gas, and because the Corolla is so popular, you should have no difficulty in finding a used model at a reasonable price.
Toyota Yaris: The Yaris is surprisingly roomy inside, for a car that looks so small on the outside. You’ll definitely have enough room for your pizzas. You won’t get a lot of features with the Yaris, but you will get great fuel economy and a car that is very easy to park and has a nice, tight turning radius.
Some of our favorite pizza delivery cars have more features than others, but they’re all reliable, easy on gas, and won’t break the bank. YourMechanic recommends any of the above five cars without reservation.
