Diecast Head-to-Head: Hot Wheels Mini vs Fiat vs Honda

Diecast Head-to-Head: Hot Wheels Mini vs Fiat vs Honda

Well ok – make that a Head-to-Head-to-Head!

Normally our Head-to-Heads are just two cars, but since these cars are so tiny we decided to make it a 3-way mighty microcar shootout. We’ve got the classic Brit Morris Mini versus the JDM hero Honda City Turbo II versus the modern Italian Fiat 500.  All feature racy graphics and stylish wheels, so which will it be?

The Mini has history on its side, and this particular version enjoys the aesthetic touches from Magnus Walker.

Next we have the new-wave hero of Japan’s micro hot hatch segment — the 1985 Honda City Turbo II. The little 2-box sports a totally-’80s paint scheme, a rear deck spoiler and solid-style wheels.

Last comes the latterday microcar standard bearer, the Fiat 500. Wild colors and racy callouts give it plenty of attitude, but is it enough to best its classic competition?
