The Fiat 500, which is also a repeat, moved up three spots to seventh in the rankings, beating the Ford Fiesta and Chevrolet Sonic.

"More of a city cruiser than a canyon carver, part of the little Fiat’s charm is that beneath the surface it’s simply a pleasant little two-door subcompact car. " said the editors.

The Renegade and Wrangler were both in Kelley Blue Book's 10 Best SUVs under $25,000;  FCA and Honda were the only automakers to have two vehicles on the top 10 list.
