Auto » 5 Tiny Cars With A Green Streak

Fiat 500 Pop
Fiat 500 Pop
  • Starting price: $16,000
  • Gas mileage:
    • City - 31 mpg
    • Highway - 40 mpg

There's something distinctly European about the Fiat 500, with its soft, rounded edges and stylish interior. The four-passenger Fiat 500 Pop is powered by a 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 101 horsepower. It comes in five model options, but the Turbo and Abarth versions are the zippiest, with 135 and 160 horsepower, respectively. Passengers are protected by seven air bags, traction control and a tire pressure monitoring system.

And here's another tiny gas-powered car that is ready to make the leap to electric in 2013. It will have an estimated 108 mpge rating, a single-speed gearbox transmission, an audible pedestrian warning system and a Hill Start Assist system.
