The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
4.0
5.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Chevrolet Spark is one of the cheapest ways to get a new-car warranty, though it’s simple and uninspired. The 2020 Nissan Versa isn't the cheapest car anymore–look to the Chevy Spark or Mitsubishi Mirage for that–and that's a good thing.
