Fonts similar to Ubuntu Condensed?


Question

We're experimenting with using Ubuntu Condensed as our website's primary font. The non-condensed Ubuntu font has too much width, and feels splayed out. Previously, we were using Signika.

It's sometimes recommended not to use a condensed font as your primary font, so we're considering other comparable options. Can anyone recommend non-condensed fonts with a look that's comparable to Ubuntu, but which are narrower than Ubuntu Regular? Alternatively, is it fine, in terms of legibility and other considerations, to just go with the condensed variant?

I find Encode Condensed quite readable. Even though it is condensed too, it is much wider and has more legible forms than Ubuntu condensed.
