With a retro-centric approach, the 2019 Fiat 500 only has one true foil in the Mini Cooper, which is much higher-quality but also more expensive than the little Italian.
The Volkswagen Beetle is larger and more practical while offering similar timeless charm but is departing the market after this year.
The Ford Fiesta and Honda Fit are both more practical and affordable but don’t offer the Fiat’s whimsical ways, and the electric-only Smart ForTwo is somehow even smaller than the Fiat and should only be considered by those really pressed for parking space.
