2016 Nissan Versa Note vs 2016 Honda Fit

The auto industry hatched a bright idea when it first introduced hatchbacks. A vehicle that could handle like a car, behave efficiently, and provide a little additional room without jumping up to being a sport utility vehicle. Nissan and Honda both run the sedan game well, but both companies also have two excellent subcompact hatchback options as well. The comparison between the 2016 Nissan Versa Note vs 2016 Honda Honda Fit proves exactly this.

Not to be confused with the Nissan Versa, which is the subcompact sedan version, the Versa Note is five doors of practical, flexible fun. Price wise, these are two of the more affordable brand new vehicles available on the market; each hatch competes well below the 20k mark and provides drivers with a variety of ways to upgrade.

The 2016 Honda Fit is available in three main trim levels: LX, EX, and EX-L. There are different versions of these models, while Nissan provides five options for 2016: S, S Plus, SV, SR, and SL.

2016 Nissan Versa Note: Affordable, Flexible Fun

Bigger isn’t always better, especially when you’re looking for a smaller vehicle; one that is easy-to-handle, even when parking spaces are tight or you’re caught in the hustle and bustle of a busy city or college campus. The Versa Note is able to maintain 27 city/ 36 hwy mpg, making for an efficient long-distance commute or quick trip around the block. When the Versa Note’s 4-cylinder engine is paired with the continuously variable transmission, it has no problem boosting that efficiency rating all the way up to 31 city/ 40 hwy mpg.

In addition to efficiency, another thing to mention about the Nissan Versa Note is the way that it is able to create as much space as possible for its passengers as well as cargo. Rear legroom for front seat passengers extends up to 38.3 inches while the front seat passengers have more than 41 inches to stretch out in.

As for cargo capacity, with the seats in place, the Nissan Versa Note is able to accommodate up to 18.8 cu-ft of storage but with the rear seats folded down, the maximum amount of cargo space reaches 38.3 cu-ft.
