2015 Nissan Versa vs. 2015 Honda Civic Review

Comparison Review

The Nissan Versa offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Honda Civic 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 Honda Civic in the front seats.

With the Honda Civic 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.

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 Honda Civic. 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 Versa and the Honda Civic have similar Destination Charges.

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

With its lower torque, the Nissan Versa doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Honda Civic.

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

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

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

The Nissan Versa comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda Civic.
