The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
6.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
Affordable small cars don't need to be bland, whether in appearance or from behind the wheel. And the 2014 Ford Fiesta is proof of that. As one of the lowest-priced new cars, the 2014 Nissan Versa and Versa Note are best matched up against a slightly upmarket late-model used car; while it's not sporty, it is roomy, with good packaging and lots of available technology.
