TCC’s Bottom Line
For those focused on getting the most comfort and practicality for the least money, the 2011 Nissan Versa is a market standout. The 2011 Toyota Yaris is a great city car for cost-conscious commuters, though those who expect a top-notch list of connectivity features will be disappointed.
