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 HEV than the Nissan Versa. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Elantra HEV, drivers may find the Nissan Versa a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Hyundai Elantra HEV 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 HEV 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 HEV 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 HEV, which is slightly longer than the Nissan Versa.

Handling
The Hyundai Elantra HEV 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 HEV is somewhat more powerful than the Nissan Versa.

Powertrain
The Hyundai Elantra HEV has much less torque than the Nissan Versa, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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