TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Chevrolet Spark is one of the best tiny cars you can buy in America, with its laudable array of active-safety systems. The 2017 Fiat 500, in a simplified lineup of models, is still stylish and distinctive after six years; pick the Abarth for driver excitement or the 500c Cabrio for inexpensive soft-top fun The 2017 Mini Cooper is still one of the most fun cars to drive on the road today.
