In Pictures: How Small is Too Small?

2 of 7

The Fiat 500 is also tiny, but it’s big enough to carry friends or lap dog around – for a few minutes, anyway. Its 101-horsepower, inline-4 power plant is powerful enough for most reviewers, propelling the microcar from zero to 60 mph in 9.2 seconds in Car and Driver tests. The base model starts at $15,500, and the $4,510 price jump over the Smart ForTwo is money well spent. The 500 adds two backseats and has a maximum of 30.2 cubic feet of cargo space. The U.S. model comes with standard safety features comparable to those in the Smart Fortwo, including seven airbags, and electronic stability control with traction control.
