The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
3.8
5.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
While the 2017 Mitsubishi i-MiEV is okay around town and holds four adults, its low price tag doesn't make up for inadequate range, marginal acceleration, and a dated interior. The 2017 Smart ForTwo is the easiest car to park that you can buy, but if you have other needs, four-seat cars can offer more cabin space, equal fuel economy, and more flexibility.
