Nissan Versa vs. Hyundai Elantra

2018 Nissan Versa

If your search for the perfect small sedan has led you to compare the Nissan Versa and the Hyundai Elantra, then you’re clearly on the right track. Both of these vehicles are packed with value and can serve you well for many miles to come. There are some key differences, though, and since you’re a smart car shopper you’ll want to explore those before you make your final selection. Read on to see how the Nissan Versa and the Hyundai Elantra compare in a few key areas.


Maybe the biggest thing that sets these two cars apart is their price. While both can be considered remarkably affordable options among many a higher-priced competitor, the Nissan Versa costs a lot less. And lest you think that a lower price tag means fewer features, let’s take a look at some of what you’ll get for the Versa’s attractive starting price.


The Nissan Versa comes standard with Bluetooth* technology, USB connectivity, and a 7-inch touchscreen. Beyond the base model, you can equip your Versa with such premium features as push-button start, remote keyless entry, cruise control, satellite radio, and NissanConnect with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

To compare, the more expensive Hyundai Elantra doesn’t make up for its higher price with more and better features. In fact, the base model of the Elantra has the same features as the base model of the Versa, and the list of available upgrades is strikingly similar.


Both of these vehicles are rock stars when it comes to maneuverability. Their compact dimensions and responsive steering make them agile and easy to guide through traffic on congested highways and into and out of tight parking spots. The ride quality in both vehicles is smooth and comfortable, and they both have ample power to keep up with the highway flow.
