These insanely fast and tiny cars prove that good things come in small packages.

Hatchback have evolved over time, and they are now nearly unavoidable on the road. Superminis typically have three doors, however five-door versions are gaining popularity. Usually, their back end is smaller than the back end of a family hatchback. Superminis do not, however, necessarily have small interiors. Since superminis often have a wider wheelbase than the majority of automobiles, the interior room can occasionally hold up to five passengers. Simply picture a supermini as being in the middle between a family hatchback and a city car.

A supermini is your best bet if you require a car that can fit through narrow city streets with ease. Superminis are also relatively priced to acquire and maintain, making them comfortable for long distance travel. Superminis aren’t the fastest option available, but they go quite quickly. Here are nine superminis whose acceleration will astound you.
