Buying a new car for fewer bucks these days can be a daunting task and one rife with compromise. However, it can happen—as long as you’re willing to look for a subcompact sedan such as Nissan‘s new 2020 Versa or the Toyota Yaris, which Toyota further actually sources from Mazda. Furthermore, both of these sedans provide considerate amounts of convenience features in their respective prices and are far further from being automotive consolation prizes.

The Yaris sedan is a long-time favorite around C/D HQ. It has further been included in our annual Editors’ Choice list. This is all due to its spunky driving demeanor and overall value. Historically speaking, the Nissan Versa has been something running in the small-car segment, moreover choosing to go after the title of the cheapest new car rather than excel at. But, the Versa is all-new for 2020, and there is a significant improvement.

On the Road

Regardless of  Versa’s freshness, the Yaris is still able to deliver the best experience for drivers who are concerned about driving. Its steering is well-weighted and direct, which helps give the Yaris an agile, tossable feel that encourages back-road fun. The Versa, while much more competent than its predecessor, simply is less rewarding to pilot than the Yaris, coming off as a more relaxed conveyance with a cushy ride, which likely will suit a broader spectrum of buyers.

Transmission:

None of these cars lit up the test track with performance. Further, each car comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission in base form. However, you may prefer the refined action of the Mazda’s optional six-speed automatic instead of Nissan’s optional continuously variable automatic.

Regardless of the gearbox, acceleration is tepid here, what with both powered by small-displacement naturally aspirated inline-fours. Furthermore, Toyota’s 1.5-liter is able to make just 106 horsepower versus Nissan’s 122-hp 1.6-liter four.

Still, it is able to manage to out-accelerate the Versa in all of our straight-line performance metrics. This is further Zero to 60 mph took a lazy 9.6 seconds in a test recently conducted of the Yaris. On the corollary, the Versa needed a glacial 10.4 seconds to hit the same mark. Besides this, both returned languid quarter-mile times in excess of 17.0 seconds.

There is an optional offering of adaptive cruise control on the Versa SR, and blind-spot monitoring comes standard on both SV and the SR models. Such features are unavailable on the Toyota altogether.

 Even though trunk volume between the two is similar (16 cubic feet for the Yaris versus 15 for the Versa), we are still able to squeeze six carry-on-size boxes in the Nissan but only five in the Toyota. Similarly, with their rear seats folded the Versa swallowed 17 boxes to the Yaris’s 12.

The Bottom Line

Considering and depending solely on data, the Nissan Versa is surely a better buy than the Toyota Yaris. Though similar in price, it’s more fuel-efficient, better equipment, and furthermore spacious for cargo. Furthermore, Versa’s problem is that it’s difficult to judge a car merely by its practical merits.

On the other side Yaris’s more playful nature, sweeter powertrain, and snazzier interior. Moreover, it is particularly for those looking for a little more than just a driving appliance. Above all, for shoppers less concerned with the driving experience, the latest Versa is a huge recommendation.
