The Mazda Demio/Toyota Vitz 'Premium Budget' car category is very popular in Wellington as it is easy to park and quite nimble when navigating Wellington's one way system and steep streets (which can often seem narrow when cars are parked along them).  For heading further afield our Premium Elite range of Toyota Corolla Hatch, Sedans and the 'Plus' GX model are a comfortable way to explore and still very easy to drive and park.
