The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
6.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Fiesta lineup is proof that small cars don't have to be feature free, and you can even have a bit of fun while saving fuel. 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.
