Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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.

Pros
Affordable price for new-car buyers
Good fuel economy for the class
Spacious rear-seat accommodations
Good-looking hatchback that we like…

Cons
...and a sedan that we don’t
Not much value in S Plus trim
Hollow-feeling buttons and trim
Pokey power

The 2018 Nissan Versa offers a huge back seat and trunk, a comfy ride and good fuel economy. It's also one of the least expensive cars around, at least in base form. If you're a driver for Lyft or Uber, a Versa could very well be an ideal car. But if you're car shopping isn't based on such obvious commercial reasons, the Versa stops making as much sense.

PROS
Giant back seat for such a small car
Rides comfortably over bumps
Roomy trunk
Low base price

CONS
Rearview camera is optional
No telescoping steering wheel
Noisy and slow acceleration
Driving experience, style and personality are all bland

The 2018 Subaru Legacy ranked #18 in Midsize Cars. Currently the Subaru Legacy has a score of 7.8 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 33 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Standard all-wheel drive
Spacious seats
Great crash test ratings

Cons
Weak base engine
Mediocre handling and ride quality
Low predicted reliability rating

The 2018 Subaru Legacy may be the best mid-size sedan that buyers largely miss. It skips performance for a good safety record and relative value—not bad things.

Pros
Sparkling safety scorecard
Better interior materials
All-wheel-drive confidence
Comfortable interior
Relatively good value

Cons
Average performance
Thirsty optional engine
Plain exterior
Extra-cost advanced safety

Revised for 2018, the Subaru Legacy has freshened front and rear styling, higher-quality interior materials, a larger 6.5-inch standard display with smartphone integration, and a more powerful air-conditioning system. Subaru says it's also retuned the Legacy for smoother acceleration, a more comfortable ride quality, sportier steering feel, and reduced wind and road noise at highway speeds.

PROS
Standard all-wheel drive for extra wet-weather traction
Excellent outward visibility
Easy-to-use infotainment systems

CONS
Engines down on power compared to competitors
