The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Nissan Versa hits the mark in offering shoppers with the tightest of budgets a comfortable, economical, and roomy small car that’s, in hatchback form, also quite good-looking. At a bargain price that’s not much more than stripper econoboxes, the 2008 Scion xD is a pretty hot little hatch.
