2017 Nissan Versa vs. 2017 Toyota Corolla Review

Comparison Review

Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Corolla than the Nissan Versa, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Corolla, the Nissan Versa may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Nissan Versa as you will with the Toyota Corolla, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 Toyota Corolla. 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 Toyota Corolla have similar Destination Charges.

Since the Nissan Versa is much slimmer than the Toyota Corolla, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Nissan Versa is slightly shorter than the Toyota Corolla, 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 Toyota Corolla.

The Nissan Versa has a smaller turning radius than the Toyota Corolla, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

The Nissan Versa has less horsepower than the Toyota Corolla, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

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

The Nissan Versa comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Corolla.
