2015 Nissan Versa Sedan vs. 2015 Ford Fiesta
If you’re looking for a new family car in the 2015 new year, then two in the list of your top contenders likely include the 2015 Nissan Versa Sedan vs. the 2015 Ford Fiesta. At Nissan 24 in Brocton, we know how frustrating buying a new car can be. You don’t want to spend hours of in front of the computer screen researching every minute detail between vehicles. That’s why we’ve provided you an easy-to-read and comprehensive overview of these two vehicle makes. Here’s what you need to know about how the 2015 Nissan Versa Sedan compares to the 2015 Ford Fiesta:
Both these vehicles were designed for a spacious interior, and drivers and front seat passengers alike will appreciate plenty of space to stretch out. However, if you have older kids, or often carpool with adults, the Nissan Versa is the better pick. This is due to its greater headroom and legroom in the back seat. The Nissan Versa gets an impressive 37 inches of rear legroom, while the Ford Fiesta is measured at 31.2 inches. The 2015 Nissan Versa was designed to be small where you need, and big where you want. Its rear legroom beats out not only the Ford Fiesta, but also the BMW 5 Series, Lexus LS460, and the Mercedes Benz E-Class.
Despite the 2015 Ford Fiesta having a slightly wider exterior than the 2015 Nissan Versa, designers failed to translate that into increased cargo space. The massive trunk in the Nissan Versa includes 14.9 cubic feet of space to pack. The Ford Fiesta has 12.8 cubic feet, less than not only the Nissan Versa, but also its other class competitors the 2015 Hyundai Accent and the 2015 Kia Rio- both at 13.7 cubic feet.
Nissan and Ford are striving to make all of their vehicles more fuel efficient to help drivers avoid spending most of their paycheck at the gas station. The 2015 Ford Fiesta gets a nice 27 mpg city and 38 mpg highway. The 2015 Nissan Versa is slightly more fuel efficient at an increased 31 mpg city and 40 mpg highway.
Performance and Handling
Drivers of the 2015 Ford Fiesta can choose between a 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine that produces 123 horsepower and 148 pound per foot torque, or the 1.6-liter inline-four that produces 120 horsepower and 112 pound per foot torque. Meanwhile, the 2015 Nissan Versa comes with only one engine of choice: a 1.6-liter that produces 109 horsepower and 107 pound per foot torque. This makes the Ford Fiesta a bit more powerful than the Nissan Versa, but the two are comparable in terms of everyday driving and handling.
At the end of the day, where customers really appreciate the 2015 Nissan Versa is at the signing out stage. This versatile sedan is cheaper than most any other car in the U.S. market. There are five trim options available for the Versa, the base starting at a remarkable $11,990 and its top-of-the-line at $16,890. The 2015 Ford Fiesta’s base trim starts at $14,000, and its top-of-the-line trim, the Titanium Sedan trim, goes for $18,200.
At the end of the day we think the 2015 Nissan Vera not only beats out the 2015 Ford Fiesta, but its other class rivals, the Hyundai Accent and the Kia Rio.
