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

Convenience
The Nissan Sentra 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 Nissan Sentra 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. The Nissan Sentra and the Nissan Versa have similar Destination Charges.

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

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Nissan Sentra transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Nissan Versa.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Nissan Sentra 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 Nissan Sentra and the Nissan Versa. The Nissan Sentra has less cargo capacity than the Nissan Versa, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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