The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.2
6.7
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. The 2017 Mini Cooper is still one of the most fun cars to drive on the road today.
