TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Fiat 500 is appealing for those who value personality above all else, but it sports some glaring flaws. The 2019 Kia Rio gives used cars a run for their money with its great warranty, good ride, safety tech, and spacious interior. The 2019 Mini Cooper makes no apologies for its heritage, packing charm and fun into a pint-size package.
