The Nissan Versa's Spacious Interior

Here at Thomas Nissan of Joliet, we want to make sure you take home the subcompact sedan that best suits your lifestyle. For this reason, we put together a comparison of the 2017 Nissan Versa and 2017 Honda Fit. Let’s take a closer look to see why the Versa comes out on top.

The 2017 Versa is more efficient than the 2017 Fit in a few ways. First of all, the Nissan Versa boasts a generous fuel tank capacity of 10.8 gallons, larger than the Honda Fit’s 10.6-gallon fuel tank capacity. You can take the Versa further without stopping for gas, thanks to its 448.80 mi. highway cruising range. The Fit lags behind, with a mere 392.20 mi. highway cruising range. When navigating city streets, the 2017 Honda Fit can only go for 339.20 mi, while the 2017 Nissan Versa is able to continue on for 369.60 mi. without stopping. The Versa can change directions on a dime, with a 34.2-ft. curb to curb turning diameter. The Fit’s 35.1-ft. curb to curb turning diameter doesn’t quite cut it.

When it comes to subcompact cars, maximizing passenger and cargo space is essential. The 2017 Fit affords just 16.6 ft.1 of cargo volume with the rear sit all the way forward, while the 2017 Versa offers a plentiful 17.8 ft.2 of cargo volume with the rear seat up. You can relish in the space provided by the Versa, with 39.8 in. of head room and 41.8 in. of leg room in the front. The Fit falls short, with 41.4 inches of legroom and 38 in. of headroom in the anterior of its cabin. While riding in the Versa, passengers can take advantage of a whopping 94.7 ft. of space. Fit passengers only have 93.8 ft. of passenger volume to squeeze into.  

The cutting-edge technology you crave is easily accessible in the 2017 Nissan Versa. This savvy sedan comes standard with NissanConnect™ with Navigation and Mobile Apps3, as well as SiriusXM® Traffic and Travel Link®4 in its top SL trim. On the other hand, the Honda Satellite-linked Navigation System™ with Voice Recognition5 and SiriusXM® Radio6 are only options in the Fit’s top EX-L trim. An available remote trunk release makes carrying heavy loads a little easier for the Versa driver. Sadly, the Fit does not offer a comparable option.

While both cars come with the safety features you would expect in today’s day and age, the Versa gives you additional peace of mind from behind the wheel. It is equipped with a standard energy-absorbing steering column and a standard Tire Pressure Monitoring System. The TPMS system comes with an Easy-fill Tire Alert7 in its top model. Unfortunately, the Fit does not have an energy-absorbing steering column at all and its Tire Pressure Monitoring System8 does not implement an Easy-fill Tire Alert7 in any of its models.

In this matchup of the 2017 Nissan Versa vs 2017 Honda Fit near Orland Park, IL, the 2017 Versa reigns supreme. Take the most current Nissan Versa out for a spin as soon as today, here at Thomas Nissan of Joliet. Give us a call at 815-741-5353 to make an appointment with one of our friendly associates.
