Have clients looking for a ride that will get them through morning commutes, downtown errands, and heavy traffic? You might want to consider recommending the cars listed below. The ideal city car should provide a safe, smooth ride for any of these tasks, and also be able to hold its own on the odd road trip. 

If a client is looking for a ride that isn’t necessarily flashy, but will be well-built and comfortable enough to give them the city drive they desire, the following five vehicles can do the job and then some. Here are the five best city cars 2020 has to offer.

1. 2020 Mini Cooper: An Easy Recommendation After You Become a Mechanic

A city car that’s available in two-door and four-door form, the 2020 Mini Cooper offers drivers an easy ride in both urban and rural settings. With a turning radius of 36 feet and a length of 151 inches, it’s a car with great parking capabilities, and the Mini Cooper S variant also comes equipped with a four-cylinder turbo engine — an upgrade from the original model’s three-cylinder.

2. 2020 Subaru Forester: For Drivers With a Taste for Bigger Rides

Any client you serve once you become a mechanic that wants a larger-sized vehicle can do a lot worse than this classic crossover SUV. Despite its compact nature, the Subaru Forester is a comfortable, safe ride with plenty of room for storage. 

The 2020 model also boasts a more muscular body than previous editions, mileage of 20 mpg in the city, and infotainment systems to help the driver navigate, as well as entertain the passengers sitting in its other four seats.

3. 2020 Toyota Prius: A Great Ride in the City and On the Highway

If a client wants a reliable hatchback to drive in the city, this is one worth suggesting. The 2020 Prius is an electric hybrid that makes parking easier for drivers, thanks partly to its turning radius of 35 feet. 

It’s also a car that can rack up mileage in cities and on highways (43 and 59 mpg, respectively), and also boasts generous storage space, autonomous emergency braking, and responsive handling.

4. 2020 BMW 2-Series: For Drivers With More Expensive Taste

While BMW is known primarily for the luxurious nature of its models, the 2-Series offers drivers the best of both worlds: giving them the high-end features you’d expect from a BMW while also being compact enough that they won’t feel jammed in smaller spaces. 

Available in Coupé, Gran Coupé and Cabriolet form, the 2-Series is equipped with a 6-speed or 8-speed transmission depending on the model, and features excellent handling and overall efficiency.

5. 2020 Jeep Wrangler: An Off-Road Car That Holds its Own in the City

Those working after auto mechanic training can recommend this classic Jeep staple to those who love off-road driving just as much as city driving, if not more. Thanks to its small turning radius, boxier shape, and a superbly-built suspension and drivetrain, it’s a car that is well-suited for driving and parking in downtown areas. This iconic four-wheel drive car also gives drivers a mild-hybrid engine (a choice of two different ones, in fact), as well as a foldable windshield and removable roof.
