2016 FIAT 500 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 FIAT 500, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Nissan Versa Note will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the FIAT 500.

Convenience
With the Nissan Versa Note you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the FIAT 500, due to its tank size and 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 FIAT 500 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 Destination Charge for the FIAT 500 is much higher than that for the Nissan Versa Note.

Dimensions
Since the FIAT 500 is much slimmer than the Nissan Versa Note, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the FIAT 500, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Nissan Versa Note.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the FIAT 500 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Nissan Versa Note.

Handling
The FIAT 500 has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Nissan Versa Note, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the FIAT 500 is somewhat more powerful than the Nissan Versa Note.

Utility
The FIAT 500 has less seating than the Nissan Versa Note, making the Nissan Versa Note the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The FIAT 500 has significantly less cargo room than the Nissan Versa Note, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.
