The 2012 Fiat 500 is small even among the subcompact class.
Ford's Fiesta has some of the same size issues, but it also has rear doors, which makes entry and exit much easier than in the 500--and it's attractive in its own modern way.
The Honda Fit is the MPV of the class, with enough spread-out room to convince you it's a small minivan and the handling to do the same.
The Toyota Yaris won't excite any drivers, but it's packaged well and has been reliable over time.
