The most accessible cars ever.  Less than 10 m rotating circle!

The most accessible cars ever. Less than 10 m rotating circle!


In the urban jungle, every centimeter is worth its weight in gold. Here is our list of the most modern cars in history. The turning circle is less than 10 m!

Driving takes on a new meaning when parking spaces are narrow and the width of cars increases systematically. Fortunately, and nowadays it is possible to choose many models with incredible maneuverability, even “instant turning”. Our comparison shows, however, that cars with a small turning circle were built a long time ago, even in the 1950s. Another thing is that some of them were very small (eg BMW Isetta), which puts the theoretical results in a worse light.

Here is our list of 150 cars with a turning radius of less than 10 meters. Among them there are very “clean” cars (for example Toyota Aygo X), as well as models that are considered complete graves today. Let’s take a look at what is best to drive in tight parking lots.
