The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
6.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Smart ForTwo promises parking ease—and this time, maybe better fuel economy and handling. The 2016 Mitsubishi i-MiEV is nimble around town, can carry four adults, and has the lowest price tag of any electric car sold in the U.S.--but both its range and performance are only marginal at highway speeds.
