- What car for a VERY narrow driveway?
Looking to buy my first car, cheap banger for getting where I want to ride. Only problem is my driveway is 1.7m ish at its narrowest. So, suggestions for something fairly normal that will fit? According to Parkers website Clio’s and Corsa’s won’t, which is worrying (Not keen on stuff like a Matiz as it will only really be doing motorway miles)Posted 4 years agomidlifecrashesSubscriber
Was going to say a Jimny, googled it and it seems so:
If the whole drive is narrow, not just a pinch point, the Peugeot 1007 has sliding doors which might help a bit. Edit: beaten to it by 6 seconds!Posted 4 years ago
House is directly next to a 4 lane roundabout so that’s not possible. There is plenty of space once I get down the drive to back yard, don’t have to park in the narrow bit thankfully! I hadn’t actually thought of a Panda, sounds like a good contender – relatively high roof for loading it 🙂Posted 4 years agoedhornbySubscriber
classic mini’s are ace but not the greatest for motorway miles and I was going to have one I’d remove the back seats and fit a roll cage, as molgrips says, they are a design from a previous age and the cars of today are twice the weight and size not to mention the big artics on the motorway
how often are you driving on the motorway ? if it’s daily and year round then a mini isn’t the best solution but if it’s weekends and non-specific journeys then probably ok – a 1275cc is preferable to the 1L if you have a choicePosted 4 years ago
