Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Elantra than the Nissan Versa. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Elantra, drivers may find the Nissan Versa a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Hyundai Elantra you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Nissan Versa, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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 Hyundai Elantra will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Nissan Versa, which has a much lower MSRP.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Elantra 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 Hyundai Elantra, which is slightly longer than the Nissan Versa.

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

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

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Hyundai Elantra transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Nissan Versa.

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