City car

A city car is a small automobile intended for use in urban areas. Unlike microcars, a city car's greater speed, capacity and (in perception at least) occupant protection are safer in mixed traffic environments and weather conditions. While city cars can reach highway speeds, that is not their intended use. In Japan, city cars are called kei cars.

Kei cars have to meet strict size and engine requirements: engines have a maximum displacement of 660 cc and the car's length must be under 3400 mm.

Examples of kei cars:

Daihatsu Move

Honda Life

Suzuki Cervo

Examples of city cars:

Fiat Panda

Maruti 800

Mini (Original 1959 model)

Other small cars:

Carver One

Citro├źn Type C

Smith Flyer
