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 Mini Cooper makes no apologies for its heritage, packing charm and fun into a pint-size package. The 2019 Volkswagen Beetle offers a surprising amount of value and a great warranty.
