In this paper, planar parametric Hermite cubic interpolants with small curvature variation are studied. By minimization of an appropriate approximate functional, it is shown that a unique solution of the interpolation problem exists, and has a nice geometric interpretation. The best solution of such a problem is a quadratic geometric interpolant. The optimal approximation order 4 of the solution is confirmed. The approach is combined with strain energy minimization in order to obtain G1 cubic interpolatory spline.
