TCC’s Bottom Line
Tall wagons aren't a thing here, yet, but the 2014 Fiat 500L gives us one more reason to ask, why not? The 2014 MINI Countryman puts the brand's fun-to-drive spirit into the body of a versatile compact crossover. The 2014 Nissan Cube is a boxy fashion statement that puts an emphasis on style, but at the expense of some practicality.
