Many Dutch people think about the next outing right after the summer vacation. A weekend away is planned in no time: the most beautiful foreign places are a few hours' drive away. Which cars are best suited for a city trip?

Drive across the border and the historic cities are flying around you. Antwerp, Bruges and Ghent are certainly worth a visit in Belgium. France is very successful with Lille, Paris, Reims and Metz. Germany offers Hamburg, Cologne and Aachen, among others.

Which cars are best suited for a city trip? We'll figure it out with the more than 240,000 used cars from AutoScout24 at hand.

1. Peugeot 207

Since the first Peugeot 207 rolled off the assembly line in 2006, more than 2.5 million units have been sold worldwide. The car is the perfect size for a city trip: big enough for your luggage, small enough for easy parking. Do you want a slightly newer model? Then go for the 207's sportier designed successor, the Peugeot 208.

2. Volkswagen Golf

The Volkswagen Golf was in 2018 not for nothing the most coveted car on AutoScout24: the German creation has been a hit since its introduction in 1974. It is not only compact and reliable, but also very economical, especially if you opt for a Golf VII. There is also an electric variant, the e-Golf. With its range of about 200 kilometers, Belgium is still feasible, but France is too far away.

3. Fiat 500

If you go on a road trip to Italy, an Italian car is just as much fun. There is one model that cries out for lazy rides through rolling hilly landscapes: the Fiat 500. Get in and the vacation begins. If you prefer a car with a sportier look and more space for your luggage, the Alfa Romeo Giulietta has very good papers.

4. SEAT Ibiza

It is not for nothing that the Spanish car manufacturer SEAT named its models after sunny destinations such as Cordoba, León and Arona (on Tenerife). The most popular model is named after an island and town in the Mediterranean: the SEAT Ibiza. Are you looking for a compact, fast and reliable occasion, then the Ibiza deserves a test drive anyway.

5. Hyundai Kona Electric

If you swear by electric and you want to be assured of a considerable action radius, then the Hyundai Kona Electric is worth considering. A full battery brings you more than 400 kilometers from home and there is no lack of space in this crossover SUV. You won't find much of it during your city trip: the electric Kona has only been on the market since last year.
