Comparison Review

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

Convenience
The Chevrolet Cruze will require fewer stops at 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). The Chevrolet Cruze is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan Versa. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Chevrolet Cruze will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Nissan Versa.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Cruze is much wider than the Nissan Versa, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Chevrolet Cruze, which is slightly longer than the Nissan Versa.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Cruze does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Nissan Versa.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Cruze is somewhat more powerful than the Nissan Versa.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Cruze and the Nissan Versa.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Cruze comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan Versa.
