    What is a Compact Car?

    Compact cars are not too big yet not too small cars. Unlike the Mini category, Compact cars have enough room for a small family, for example, or two adults and two children. Thanks to their features, Compact cars are one of the most frequently booked car categories.

    The Nash Rambler is known as the first American compact car, produced in 1950. Over the course of time, Compact cars have gained more and more importance and popularity. It is simple - Compact cars are larger than Minis and smaller than big family cars, which is why they take up the majority of car rental fleet offered by all major suppliers.

    Pros and Cons of Compact Cars

    Ever since the first Mini appeared on the market, the trend to expand the size of small cars has been present in the automotive industry. Most drivers want their cars to be small enough and maneuverable but also to provide them with enough space and comfort, hence the increased demand for Compact cars as they match both requirements.

    With their medium size, Compact cars offer enough interior space for passengers while also featuring a spacious boot. These vehicles are ideal if you need plenty of storage space and a medium-sized car for the road. Compact cars are known for their high safety standards and fuel efficiency. Although the fuel consumption is slightly higher when compared to a smaller car, booking a Compact car is recommendable if you want to feel comfortable and safe throughout your journey.
