The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
6.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Nissan Versa sedan and Versa Note hatchback are as about as inexpensive and no-frills as new cars get today. Spacious interiors and and decent ride comfort are their strong points, and they're best matched up against slightly upmarket, late-model used cars. The 2014 Toyota Yaris is built for city commuting, but on highways it reveals some major weak spots.
