The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
4.3
3.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The teensy 2018 Ford Fiesta lives its best life as a scintillating turbo-4 ST. The Nissan Versa is affordable transportation that has an appealing price—especially for students. It’s not quick but it is spacious, especially in hatchback form.
