TCC’s Bottom Line
You could do better if you most value space and comfort, but the 2012 Ford Fiesta packs in a lot of style and substance. The 2012 Honda Fit is peppy and fun to drive, and its interior is incredibly space-efficient; but some might be turned off by its rather utilitarian look. Do Americans want small cars with more room and great gas mileage? The 2012 Hyundai Accent is betting they do--and so are we.
