What are you waiting for? Adventures ahead!

Volkswagen Sportsvan

The Volkswagen Sportsvan represents a new generation of city crossovers that are designed to look and feel right at home in the urban environment. Based upon the hugely popular Golf hatchback, the Sportsvan boasts compact dimensions for easy manoeuvrability, and plenty of space to accommodate everything you would ever need. Its tall seating position means greater cabin accessibility, and the Sportsvan is generally agreeable to drive, with a sporting slant to boot. Power comes from a 1.4-litre TSI turbocharged petrol with 125bhp, and the highly capable MQB platform that underpins it ensures a drivability factor that is sure to impress.

2)  Toyota Sienta

Another easy to drive city car, the Sienta blends city style with immense practicality. A tall stance means plenty of space and headroom for everyone, while neat sliding rear doors enhance accessibility. The Sienta even hides a foldable third row of seats, ideal road trips with your grandchildren. Being a Toyota means it will be easy to drive, and while the 1.5-litre engine with 105bhp is hardly a trailblazer, you can almost guarantee that it will be bombproof, capable of lasting as long as you are. You can even opt for eye-catching colours like orange or highlighter yellow to help you maintain that youthful streak.

3)  Audi Q2

The Audi Q2 marks a departure for the usually-prim Audi brand, with a bold style that is designed to appeal to the young and young-at-heart. Bright colours and strong lines marks the Q2 out from the rest of the Audi line-up, and its rugged crossover SUV stance points towards a highly versatile car that is immensely practical too. Its 1.4-litre turbo petrol engine with 150bhp offers perky performance and an impressively capable drive, and the Q2 is as energetic and vibrant as you can be, able to keep up with whatever you do in your active lifestyle years.
