Editor's Overview

The 2016 Fiat 500L has Italian charm like its tiny 500 sibling, but boasts room for five passengers and gear thanks to a larger body and flexible hatchback design. Starting around $20,000, the Fiat 500L remains a good value. But the Kia Soul is a better bargain, while the new Honda HR-V is expected to hold its value far better.

It's very tough and reliable car that I think most people will like.

I like that it has great styling and handles well. And can carry lots of cargo. But it constantly needs to be tuned up and the mileage for gas is not good.

- Garzey L

I think they should know that it doesn't always start right away.

I like that it is very well mileage and I can drive it whenever. I like that it's clean and runs smoothly than my other cars. I dislike the tires.

- Echelon H

All the space and comfort you need

It is a comfortable crossover for the city but not bad even for dirt tracks, spacious and spacious inside and has moderate consumption
