It can be a good idea to opt for a compact or mid-size car in Locarno as the city, as many surrounding areas in Ticino have narrow streets and tight parking spaces. A compact or mid-size car would be more manoeuvrable and easier to park in urban areas. Moreover, since Locarno is situated in a mountainous region, some roads might be uneven or have potholes. A car with good ground clearance can better handle such terrain. Alternatively, having an AWD or 4WD car can be beneficial, especially during winter.
