The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Suzuki SX4 is an amazing bargain, but it might not meet your most frugal car needs at the pump. The 2008 Nissan Versa isn’t particularly sporty, fashionable, or innovative, but it offers an astonishing amount of space, comfort, and features for the money.
