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. If you want small, fun, and fuel-efficient, there are other options to consider, but if you're looking for a two-seat hybrid hatchback coupe, the 2015 Honda CR-Z is really your only choice. The shadow cast by the FR-S is a long one, but the 2015 tC manages to have an interesting personality on its own.
