9. 2012 Fiat 500

Gas mileage: 33 mpg (30 city/38 highway)

Returning to the US market after a 27-year hiatus, Fiat vehicles are expected by KBB.com to offer a much better driving experience. The editors point out that the car is smaller and less powerful than a Mini Cooper but offers more personality than a Toyota Yaris. “The Fiat 500 offers a new combination of European heritage and sub-compact practicality,” they say.
