Take a look at the comparison below for more information.

 
 

Efficiency

Most people assume that subcompact and compact cars offer the best in fuel efficiency. While some of these cars do, you still need to make sure you're picking the one that offers the most. The 2016 Ford Fiesta offers an EPA-estimated 28 city and 36 highway mpg. The 2016 Nissan Versa is close, offering 27 city and 36 highway. While this may not be enough to help you make a decision, consider this: you can go farther with the Ford. This new model offers a highway cruising range of 446.4 miles. Compare this to the 388.8 highway cruising range of the Nissan, and you'll know that there is only one choice you should be making.

 
 

Power

2016 Ford Fiesta

When you look at the base hatchback models, you'll notice that each one comes with a standard 1.6L engine with a five-speed manual transmission. For some, this may trick you into believing that they offer the same type of power, but they don't. In fact, the Ford offers more power. When you opt for this new model, you'll get 120 hp and 112 lb-ft of torque. This is much more powerful than the 109 hp and 107 lb-ft of torque you'd get with the Versa. In addition, the Fiesta offers an available six-speed automatic transmission. You will not be able to snag this when you choose the Nissan. So if you want the vehicle that gives you better power and more choices, then you'll want to be sure you bring home the Fiesta.

 
 

Warranty

No Arlington Heights or Schaumburg driver wants to be left out on the side of the road if something were to happen. While both vehicles offer similar powertrain and basic warranties, the Ford beats the Nissan when it comes to roadside assistance. After all, this new model comes standard with five years or 60,000 miles of roadside assistance. If you opt for the Nissan, you'll only get this roadside assistance for 3 years or 36,000 miles. When you think about your peace of mind and how you'd like to stay covered, you're better off choosing the warranty that gives you more. Obviously, that would be the Ford.
