TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Fiat 500L tall wagon has utility down pat, and offers good value, but its styling is quirky and gas mileage is only average at best The 2017 Honda Fit gives up some fun-to-drive spunk for unparalleled interior space and flexibility. The 2017 Kia Soul rights one of our longtime gripes with the fun wagon—it now has a more capable turbo-4 that makes it a little less boring to drive
