The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
7.2
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 Smart ForTwo promises parking ease—and this time, maybe better fuel economy and handling.
