The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Fiat 500L has received a handful of interior and infotainment upgrades, but it's subpar in several aspects and remains among our lowest-rated cars. The 2018 Honda Fit spaces out when it comes to economy-car goodness. The 2018 Kia Niro Hybrid and Plug-In Hybrid breathe new life into the hybrid segment, with a practical wagon shape and excellent interior you’d never know was a hybrid.
