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. It's not as much fun as its styling suggests, but the 2012 Scion xD has a low base price and offers lots of accessories.
