A compact profile, efficiency, good looks, and affordability are just a few priorities you might have when shopping for the right vehicle for your urban lifestyle. Here are three GM models that every city dweller should consider.

Chevy Spark

The 2020 Spark is well suited to city life for a variety of reasons. For starters, it has an affordable starting price at just $13,400. It also gets 30 mpg in the city and 38 on the highway for superb efficiency whether you’re running errands or skipping town for the weekend.

Its petite frame measures just 143.1 inches in length and 62.8 inches in width (without the mirrors), which makes it perfect for navigating congested city streets and squeezing into tight parking spots. Available Rear Park Assist makes parallel parking even simpler, so you can park your car right the first time without worrying about scratching the bumper.

Chevy offers the model in 10 different shades to match your mood, whether you prefer a more mellow shade like Passion Fruit or Caribbean Blue, or a peppier shade like Orange Burst or Red Hot.

The 2020 Bolt EV is the perfect car to keep pace with your fast-paced, environmentally conscious life. It has an EPA-estimated range of 259 miles on one charge, so you can spend less time hooked up to a charger.

Its 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score for Safety from the NHTSA will boost your confidence behind the wheel. Advanced driver-assist functions like Front Pedestrian Braking and Rear Park Assist will increase your alertness to potential obstacles when you’re driving around town.

Surprisingly spacious, the Bolt EV also delivers 56.6 cubic feet of maximum cargo space when you collapse the back seats. This gives you the option of transporting more gear and longer items when you’re out shopping or packing up the car for a road trip.

Cadillac XT4

If you need a bit more space than a sedan and prefer a more elegant facade than the Spark and Bolt, take a look at the Cadillac XT4. The exterior incorporates an assertive sport grille complemented by LED daytime running lamps and LED taillamps. Sleek body lines add to the contemporary aesthetic.

Inside, the cabin has space for up to five people while boasting best-in-class rear legroom to keep second-row passengers more comfortable. And with front lumbar massaging seats, it’s easy to feel relaxed when you’re driving no matter what stresses you encounter on the road.

The XT4 incorporates progressive safety systems to ease your mind when cruising city streets. The Safety Alert Seat provides vibration cues on the left, right, or both sides of the driver’s seat when needed, to communicate which direction (or directions) obstacles are approaching the vehicle. A Head-Up Display makes it easy to monitor essential information like vehicle speed and navigational instructions while keeping your gaze on the road up ahead.
