The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Fiesta offers fun and features not expected at these prices, but it lacks interior space compared to top rivals. The 2016 Mini Cooper is as cheeky as its retro style implies—and its three-cylinder engine is a charming surprise.
