Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Corolla than the Nissan Versa, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Nissan Versa will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Corolla.

Convenience
The Toyota Corolla requires fewer visits to 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). Based on MSRP, the Nissan Versa is clearly a better financial choice over the Toyota Corolla. 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 Nissan Versa will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Toyota Corolla.

Dimensions
Since the Nissan Versa is much slimmer than the Toyota Corolla, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Nissan Versa is slightly shorter than the Toyota Corolla, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Nissan Versa doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota Corolla.

Handling
The Nissan Versa has a smaller turning radius than the Toyota Corolla, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Nissan Versa has less horsepower than the Toyota Corolla, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Nissan Versa and the Toyota Corolla. The Nissan Versa has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Toyota Corolla.

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