2015 Dodge Dart vs. 2015 Nissan Versa Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Dodge Dart than in the Nissan Versa, due to the Dodge Dart's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Dodge Dart and the Nissan Versa in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Dodge Dart you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Nissan Versa, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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 Dodge Dart will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Nissan Versa, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Dodge Dart is much higher than that for the Nissan Versa.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Dart is much wider than the Nissan Versa, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Dodge Dart, which is slightly longer than the Nissan Versa.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Dodge Dart does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Nissan Versa.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Dart has a much more powerful engine than the Nissan Versa. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Dodge Dart and the Nissan Versa.

Warranty
The Dodge Dart comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan Versa.
