The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

4.4
6.6

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 Mini Countryman has a new plug-in hybrid system but the mission is the same: Big Mini crossover with a bigger audience.
