2017 Nissan Versa vs. 2017 Subaru Impreza Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Nissan Versa offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Subaru Impreza with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Nissan Versa, drivers may find the Subaru Impreza a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Subaru Impreza 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 Subaru Impreza. 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Subaru Impreza.

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

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Nissan Versa is significantly less powerful than the Subaru Impreza. 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 Subaru Impreza.

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