2014 Mazda Mazda2 vs. 2015 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 Mazda Mazda2, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Mazda Mazda2 and the Nissan Versa Note in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mazda Mazda2 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Mazda Mazda2 will have less of an impact on your bank account 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 Mazda Mazda2 and the Nissan Versa Note have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Mazda Mazda2 is about the same width as the Nissan Versa Note. If you go with the Mazda Mazda2, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Nissan Versa Note.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Mazda Mazda2 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Nissan Versa Note.

Handling
The Mazda Mazda2 has a smaller turning radius than the Nissan Versa Note, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Mazda Mazda2 has less horsepower than the Nissan Versa Note, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mazda Mazda2 and the Nissan Versa Note. The Mazda Mazda2 has significantly less cargo room than the Nissan Versa Note, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Mazda Mazda2 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan Versa Note.
