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 Honda CR-Z hybrid hatchback two-seater is the sole car in its segment, but other cars are sportier, more fuel-efficient, and carry more people and luggage. The 2016 Scion tC is a practical coupe with decent space and fuel economy, but power and performance are far from exciting.
