The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

6.2
6.0

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2011 Smart Fortwo is at its best on congested urban streets; at highway speeds its less-secure feel becomes a liability in several ways. The 2011 Toyota Yaris is a great city car for cost-conscious commuters, though those who expect a top-notch list of connectivity features will be disappointed.
