2015 Nissan Versa Note vs. 2014 Scion xD Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Versa Note than the Scion xD. The Nissan Versa Note will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Scion xD.

Convenience
The Nissan Versa Note will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Scion xD, 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). The Nissan Versa Note is somewhat more expensive than the Scion xD. 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 Note will cost more in transportation costs than the Scion xD.

Dimensions
The Nissan Versa Note is a little narrower than the Scion xD, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Nissan Versa Note, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Scion xD.

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

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

Performance
