The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
For those focused on getting the most comfort and practicality for the least money, the 2011 Nissan Versa is a market standout. The 2010 Suzuki SX4 delivers cheerful refinement at a remarkably low price; its only Achilles' heel is its fuel efficiency.
