2015 Nissan Versa vs. 2014 Honda Civic Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Nissan Versa offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Honda Civic. The Nissan Versa will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Civic.

Convenience
The Honda Civic requires fewer visits to 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). 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.

Dimensions
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.

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

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

Performance
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.

Utility
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.

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