I’m happy to see that the big car and SUV fad has been slowing down lately. It was getting a bit overwhelming to try to navigate the parking lot at the grocery store when every car and truck seemed to need three spaces just to park. I’ve been touting the joys of smaller cars for years, and it seems like more and more people are starting to agree with me! Hooray! I was at Thornton Road Hyundai the other day looking at the 2015 Hyundai Accent and realized it’s the perfect example of a great small car for a busy family. It’s smaller than a sedan as a subcompact, but it still boasts 111.3 cubic feet of interior space. This means it has more cargo space than the Toyota Yaris, Chevy Sonic, Ford Fiesta and Mazda 2 series! And, with an MSRP starting at $14,745, the price is small enough not to make a big dent on your budget. If you’re still on the fence about whether a smaller car is the right fit for you, consider these benefits of driving a small car:
They Cost Less
It’s true: Most small cars cost far less than their full-sized counterparts. In addition, the great gas mileage means they cost less in the long run. For example, the 2015 Hyundai Accent gets 27/38 MPG city/highway. That means frequent fill-ups are a thing of the past!
They Get Better MPG Than Big Cars
While the big cars get 16 to 19 MPG, smaller cars get in the 20 to 40 MPG range. You’ll go farther with less stops at the gas station.
They’re Easier to Maneuver
Because of their little size, it’s easier to steer, park and react appropriately in an unexpected traffic situation.
They’re Easier to Clean
Do you wash your car at home? Then you know that the bigger the car, the longer it takes to wash. With a length of 162-inches and a width of 67-inches, you’ll be able to get the 2015 Hyundai Accent shiny and clean in no time!
As you can tell, small cars are a big help all around. They make driving easier, save you money in gas and, above all, cost less. If you think a small car may be right for you, stop by Thornton Road Hyundai today and give the 2015 Hyundai Accent a try. It may help you decide that smaller is better!
