The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.2
6.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Nissan Versa sedan and Versa Note hatchback are no-frills transportation with plenty of space, but poor safety and performance ratings. The 2016 Toyota Yaris is Toyota's least expensive model, but it doesn't stand out in any particular category.
