The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Fiat 500L has hatchback utility down pat, but its styling is quirky and performance is average, at best. The 2016 Honda Fit isn't as entertaining to drive as it once was, but it's unmatched in safety and space, thanks to the Magic Seat. The 2016 Mini Counryman retains a fair amount of the Mini character and fun-to-drive spirit, but a growing crop of small crossovers give it more competition than ever.
