2020 Nissan Versa vs. Its Competition

2020 Nissan Versa
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

We have good feelings for small cars.

The Hyundai Accent and Kia Forte are good places to start and offer similar features for a low price.

The Chevy Sonic is aged and we think it’s lost some of its verve in its golden years.

The Honda Fit is a hatchback and it’s more practical than the sedans on our list—it’s also more expensive.

The Toyota Yaris is a sedan or hatch (they both cost the same, too) with good tech and a spring in its step thanks to a secret.

Want to hear it? The Toyota Yaris is actually a Mazda behind the badge.
