2016 Nissan Versa vs. 2016 Chevrolet Cruze Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Cruze you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Nissan Versa, 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). Based on MSRP, the Nissan Versa is clearly a better financial choice over the Chevrolet Cruze. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Nissan Versa will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Chevrolet Cruze.

Dimensions
Since the Nissan Versa is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Cruze, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Nissan Versa is slightly shorter than the Chevrolet Cruze, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Nissan Versa has much less torque than the Chevrolet Cruze, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Nissan Versa is significantly less powerful than the Chevrolet Cruze. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

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

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