The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
4.0
3.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage is the most minimal four-seat car you can buy; with small cars lagging in sales, you can do better for little more money. 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.
