Sub-compact Car: Smart ForTwo
2nd place: Scion xD
3rd place: Honda Fit

The ForTwo's main selling point is its tiny size and its tiny fuel costs. About as long as most mid-size cars are wide, the ForTwo is a breeze to park on congested city streets.

The tiny two-seater beat out roomier cars like the Scion xD and Honda Fit. While it may not be the most practical choice for a lot of people, the ForTwo delivers what its buyers are looking for, said David Sargent, vice president for automotive research at J.D. Power.
