There are times when we just don't need more than one other person around. It's the same with cars; sometimes one more seat is one too many. Two seats let you bring along a significant other, and hopefully there is enough luggage space for at least a weekend away. Heading someplace warm that will let you pack light is probably also a plus.

Hopefully that significant other puts a smile on your face and so can these little two-seat numbers, which can transport the two of you.

Any of these two-seaters should thrill you and your one passenger. Enjoy them while you can, but be careful because a common outcome of such cozy excitement is to outgrow the car's two seats, putting you in the market for a sedan or maybe even a minivan!
