When your family isn’t very big and you need a vehicle that gives you up to 35 miles per gallon for your San Francisco vacation or replacement car in San Francisco, you can’t go wrong with an economy compact car rental. After all, it has the space you require and can fit into your budget.

How many people can fit into a compact car fairly easily? Four adults and one child along with a couple of travel suitcases can get into a European Compact Elite or Compact vehicle. On the North American continent, a Compact vehicle can easily carry two adults along with three children and several suitcases.

Compact Cars Perfect For Individual or Small Families

Now, you might be wondering what class of car models are listed as compact. They include:

  • Citroen C4
  • Ford Focus
  • Ford Fiesta
  • Chevy Aveo

In 2004, France automakers introduced the Citroen C4 but this isn’t your average front wheel drive family car; it’s also designed to be a rally car.  The American-made Ford Focus, which is a replacement to the Ford Escort, is a front wheel drive compact car. Both the rear and forward head room is 38 inches with the hip room being 53 inches.  The sale of this vehicle began in Europe in 1998 and, in 1999, the vehicle was introduced to the North American continent.

Now, the Ford Fiesta is another front-wheel drive compact car, which is built in various areas of the world including Argentina, Brazil, China, Europe, India, Mexico, South Africa, Thailand and Venezuela. Since, its inception in 1976, more than 12 million of this vehicle model has been sold.  

The Chevy Aveo was first produced in 2002 and is considered to be a subcompact model. Now, there are two generations attached to the Aveo. The first generation was known as the Daewoo Kalos, which was first seen in South Korea. The second generation had its debut in January 2011.
