Luxury compact cars

in Compact

Luxury compact cars are an exciting niche in the vehicle market for urban motorists. Premium small cars are right on trend in the design capitals the world over. This is because luxury compact cars are not only practical and comfortable, they also sport some of the most cutting-edge styling on the market.

Anyone living in a congested urban environment will appreciate the advantage of compact cars. These agile vehicles are easy to park, a pleasure to navigate and are less bulky, more streamlined and feel more contemporary than larger sedans.

As manufacturers have come to appreciate that motorists in the premium category also want nimble compact cars, they have been focusing more attention on creating luxury compact vehicles with funky styling and the same well-appointed interiors as premium sedans.
At best, luxury compacts boast an interior cabin fit for any executive in a concentrated and fun little automotive package.

Low fuel consumption

Compact vehicles are lighter on fuel, while often sporting punchy engine performance. Luxury compact cars are distinguished by great handling and responsive performance. 
Low fuel consumption is not just the product of an efficient engine. Premium vehicles should be equipped with advanced fuel-saving technologies, with luxury compact cars being no exception.

These technologies include systems to switch off the engine while the car is at rest, with immediate restart as a gear is engaged. Computer-monitored recommendations can help motorists drive with optimal efficiency.

Combined with the inherent efficiency of small cars, these technologies combine to produce cost-effective and resource-conscious motoring.

The advent of premium compact cars means that experienced motorists who want a small, urban cruiser no longer have to settle for a less prestigious and poorly appointed car. Of course, luxury compact cars also ideal for younger drivers who demand a superior driving experience.

Compact vehicle, big performance

Luxury compact cars don't just boast premium interiors and design, they boast premium performance, too. The potent turbocharged engines on premium supermini vehicles can be exceptionally efficient – with low average fuel consumption – while delivering impressive torque and exhilarating acceleration.

Anyone in the market for a luxury compact car should consider both turbo-petrol and turbo-diesel models, according to their preferences and driver habits.

Driver entertainment

The most entertaining feature of a compact car should be the way it feels to drive. Luxury compacts take the driver experience to the next level.

Added features include surround sound systems, designed especially for optimum sound inside the cabin, to intelligent systems to easily connect the driver's cell phone and multimedia players. It is no wonder luxury compact cars are so appealing to young drivers, or that they offer such user-friendly functionality to busy urban drivers.

Executive motorists will also have the option of customising their luxury compact vehicle with a range of style, entertainment and driver assistance options.

Luxury compact cars are the fun and trendy way to negotiate the city. For the young, the young at heart, or anyone who wants to stay ahead of the design curve, these vehicles are the perfect all-round package.
