Top 11 Hatchbacks and Wagons With the Smallest Turning Circles for 2014

Hatchbacks and wagons offer the kind of easy utility that makes them especially suited for city driving. Many also boast superb maneuverability, thanks to their small turning circles. A car's turning circle is the full diameter of the smallest circle it's capable of making when completing a turn. A small turning circle can help a car navigate crowded city parking lots and clogged urban streets with little fuss.

The 11 models listed below (our list is longer than the usual 10 due to ties) are the hatchbacks and wagons with the smallest turning circles for 2014. Our list includes microcars such as the Scion iQ, subcompacts such as the Toyota Yaris and a small hybrid, the Toyota Prius c. There are even a couple of electric cars, such as the Mitsubishi i-MiEV and the Fiat 500e, for those who like to be ahead of the curve.
