TCC’s Bottom Line
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. The name rings true: this Kia has a Soul, with fun road manners and tall-wagon practicality baked into its kicky shape. Scant room and lousy gas mileage probably don't even matter--if you're into the 2012 Nissan Juke's crazy styling, you'll probably love its zingy powertrain and its dino-skin cockpit.
