The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
6.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
Small cars don't need to be bland--the 2013 Ford Fiesta proves that with a saucy look and pert handling. The 2013 Nissan Versa is at its best up against used cars: If you can overlook some cheap-feeling details, it's a reasonably comfortable, well-equipped new car, for used-car money.
