TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2021 Hyundai Accent is cheap and cheerful, but chintzy on safety. The 2021 Kia Rio feels bigger than its subcompact size, but skips some big-boy features. The 2021 Nissan Versa doesn’t claim the cheapest-car title anymore—and it doesn’t look, feel, or drive like it anymore, either.
