2016 Chevrolet Sonic vs. 2016 Nissan Versa Note Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Versa Note than the Chevrolet Sonic, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Sonic, drivers may find the Nissan Versa Note a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Sonic as you will with the Nissan Versa Note, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Chevrolet Sonic is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan Versa Note. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Sonic will cost more in transportation costs than the Nissan Versa Note.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Sonic is much wider than the Nissan Versa Note, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The Chevrolet Sonic is slightly shorter than the Nissan Versa Note, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Sonic transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Nissan Versa Note.

Handling
The Chevrolet Sonic has about the same turning radius as the Nissan Versa Note, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Sonic is somewhat more powerful than the Nissan Versa Note.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Sonic and the Nissan Versa Note. The Chevrolet Sonic has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Nissan Versa Note.
