TCC’s Bottom Line
The Fiat 500 is one of the most stylish ways to choose a small car today, and the Abarth and Turbo models add more excitement for the driver. The 2015 Fiesta lineup is proof that small cars don't have to be feature free, and you can even have a bit of fun while saving fuel. The 2014 MINI Cooper is a fun, smart, and practical way to get around, without giving up its sporty, quirky side.
