The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
4.2
5.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Fiesta drops pro handling moves in ST trim, and 3-cylinders excel at sipping fuel--but all Fiestas have very tight interiors. No frills transportation still exists in the Nissan Versa, but it might be just the ticket for those on a budget looking for an urban runabout.
