Let’s start with the smallest of the small sedans. The Aygo / Picanto is a cute little city car that is perfect for families or a group of friends traveling around the Ring Road. This small economical car is a hatchback-type model with four doors which fits up to five adults. There’s also room in the trunk for one or two suitcases. It’s not suitable for F-roads as the vehicle has a 2WD and it comes with both manual and automatic transmission options. With power steering, airbags, and cutting-edge design, this economical vehicle is perfect for both day trips and longer excursions around Iceland.

Kia Rio / Dacia Sandero

2018-2019 Model

The new Kia Rio and Toyota Yaris are both larger, slightly more spacious options than the Kia Picanto. Both vehicles make a smart choice for either taking a quick trip in Reykjavik and environs or traveling around the island. Like most economy-sized vehicles, these types of cars get particularly excellent mileage. This is especially important if you are looking to stretch your cash with an economical car option. If you want fuel efficiency at a budget-friendly price, this is the type of vehicle you want. This class of vehicle fits up to five passengers and has power steering, USB ports, climate control, and airbags. Please note that you cannot drive the Kia Rio or the Toyota Yaris on Iceland’s F-roads as they have a 2WD.
