The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.2
3.5
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Kia Rio gives used cars a run for their money with its great warranty, good ride, safety tech, and spacious interior. The 2019 Nissan Versa is the cheapest way to get new-car smell and a full warranty, but rivals deliver plenty for not much more.
