  • Test-drive notes: You will be surprised by the remarkable amount of room inside this little car.
  • Price Range: $19,195 to $24,395
  • Best gas mileage:
    • City - 24
    • Highway - 33
    • Combined - 27

Convinced it was losing sales to shoppers looking for a larger passenger space, Fiat stretched its tiny 500-by-27 inches and added two rear doors. Mission accomplished: The interior grew by 42 percent and seats five.
