2016 Nissan Sentra vs. 2016 Nissan Versa Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Nissan Sentra offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Nissan Versa with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Nissan Sentra and the Nissan Versa in the front seats.

Convenience
The Nissan Sentra will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Nissan Versa, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Nissan Sentra 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 Nissan Sentra and the Nissan Versa have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Nissan Sentra 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 Nissan Sentra, which is slightly longer than the Nissan Versa.

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

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

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

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Nissan Sentra and the Nissan Versa. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Nissan Sentra as you will in the Nissan Versa.

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