THE CREW Wiki

A compact car is a mid-size family car, corresponding to the C segment. They fall between versatile city cars and road wagons. These are the small sedans, which seek a compromise in terms of size to be adapted, as far as possible, to all types of traffic, targeting a more family-friendly clientele than the B segment (they are sometimes called "compact family" ). In Europe, their size varies on average from 4.20 m to 4.50 m. In North America, the interior volume of compacts is considered to be between 2,830 L and 3,115 L.

The name originated in the United States to mention cars smaller than mid-size wagons. In Europe this name is justified by the predominance of two-volume and hatchback models.

Exemple: Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantic, Ford Fiesta WRC, Hyundai i30 N, Volvo C30 Polestar, Mini John Cooper Works GP, Peugeot 208 GTi 30th Anniversary Edition, etc.
