TCC’s Bottom Line
If you're set on stylish and small, the 2011 Ford Fiesta might be your only choice, though you might miss the solid, roomy feel of a Fit. Look beyond the appearance of the 2010 Honda Fit, which admittedly won’t quicken pulses. Honda nails the rest with the peppy, spacious, and frugal Fit. The 2010 Nissan Versa is one of the best-value cars available on the market. Just remember that at its cheapest, you won’t be getting too much in the way of features.
