The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

6.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
Do Americans want small cars with more room and great gas mileage? The 2012 Hyundai Accent is betting they do--and so are we. The 2012 Nissan Versa is a reasonably comfortable, well-equipped new car for used-car money—but if you're a stickler for the details it can feel as cheap as it is.
