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

Convenience
With the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid 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.

The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid has a larger turning radius than the Nissan Versa, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.
