The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Fiat 500 pays big dividends for going small--in expressive styling and even in driving verve. The 2012 Toyota Yaris is fuel-efficient in the city without hybrid hardware, and it has an nicely appointed interior that feels cheerful but not cheapskate; but its weak performance and highway refinement aren't up to current class standards.
