Exceprt from "10 Cutest Cars in America"
You know them: They're the cars you want to drive and hug at the same time. Here's our list of vehicles that make you go, 'Awww.'
Hall of Fame: Chrysler PT Cruiser
Launched on an unsuspecting public in 1999, the PT Cruiser was immediately dubbed "the car too cool to categorize." Depending on whom you talked to, its utterly original design was inspired by either a Chrysler Airflow, a getaway car for 1930s movie gangsters, or a Model A hot rod. Based on a Neon platform, the five-door Cruiser was both eminently practical and very profitable. As late as its fifth year on the market, Chrysler still sold 130,000 of them. The design would prove so iconic that Chrysler was unable to successfully update it, and production was ended in 2010.
The current contender for the title of cutest car on the market, the 500 scores a rare triple in cuteness: It's small, curvy and friendly-faced. The 500 is even cuter if you use its Italian nickname "Cinquecento." A modern interpretation of Italy's beloved Topolino built between 1957 and 1975, it was reintroduced in its home market in 2007 and became a cult hit. Every Italian looks stylish in a 500. If Americans find it drives half as well as it looks, Fiat will have a winner. Still to be determined is whether the 500 will look as cute in Rochester as it does in Rome.
