The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Fiat 500 remains distinctive and stylish, with the Abarth and Turbo models scoring high for driver excitement and the electric 500e perhaps the best all-round version (but only for Californians). The 2016 Fiesta offers fun and features not expected at these prices, but it lacks interior space compared to top rivals.
