2016 Nissan Versa 1.6 S Review
says:
I got this car for my 16th birthday. I had been doing some research and found that I could get a 3 year old car with 40k miles on it for $10-$15k, or I could get a brand new one for $12k off the lot! When it came for me to be able to drive the car all by myself, I was ecstatic, and my parents were too. A car with ~100 horsepower was a perfect first car for a teenager. It was a fun bonding experience my parents teaching me how to drive stick, and in only a few weeks I found myself only stalling once or twice a week... Youll also get to brag about all of its amazing features. Roll down windows, manual lock doors, manual transmission. It really is a car that isnt too forgiving in the luxury department, but thats not what youre here for, is it. My overall score- 76/100

Power Ranked 2016 Toyota Prius worse.
"Although when you really put your foot down you can actually feel the 1.8L engine in the little Hybrid, the Manual transition in the Versa really gives it the edge. Some may complain about the engine noise, in my opinion it adds to this cars value as anyones first stick-shift vehicle."
Handling Ranked 2016 Toyota Prius worse.
"Its all about the manual transition. Sure, the CVT in the Prius makes it easier to drive for those who may consider themselves more lazy, but switching over to manual gives you so much more control. Not only that, but the fact that your right hand is on the transmission means that it isnt occupied otherwise, be it texting, smoking or any other distractions you may fear for you first time car owner/driver."
Looks/Style Ranked 2016 Toyota Prius worse.
"The Prius is extremely ugly. Although I think in a match-up against the Versa Note, theyd be about neck and neck, theres just no arguing here. The Versa is a nice looking sedan."
Front Seats Ranked 2016 Toyota Prius worse.
"The Prius does have an armrest as well as automatic climate control in the base model, but in my eyes it just isnt the same without the stick."
Back Seats Ranked 2016 Toyota Prius worse.
"They are about equal, but in the Versa the hump in the middle seat is definitely less predominant, partly due to the fact that there is no arm rest that deploys in that section of the car as opposed to the Prius."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2016 Toyota Prius better.
"The Prius is a hatchback. Enough said. I would like to note however that the Versa also lacks a center console with storage. I dont find it too difficult to store everything in the glove box, but it is something to note."
Family Car Ranked 2016 Toyota Prius better.
"The Prius is a car anyone can drive. Although itd be nice if everyone in the world, especially in the USA, knew how to drive stick, it just isnt happening with the uprising of automatic and CVT transmissions. Aside from this, the extra storage allows for maybe a pet in the back seat, or a few extra kids."
Value Ranked 2016 Toyota Prius worse.
"Perhaps in the long run youll save gas money driving the prius, the Versa is just so cheap! Not in a bad way of course. I pride myself in saying that my car is officially the cheapest car in America (even though it may be Japanese. Dont tell anybody that..)"
Would Buy Ranked 2016 Toyota Prius worse.
"Although you may be Saving the planet with your hybrid, I dont see it worth the shame in driving the Prius. Its just so ugly! I also find that the seats in the Versa are a little more comfortable overall and that even though its not a hybrid I still see myself getting 30-35 mpg even in the city. I would definitely recommend the Versa to any young first time car owner."

2016 Nissan Versa Review
says:
felt really small inside. Felt every bump in the road. Not a lot of get up and go when getting on the freeway. But if youre looking for a little getting around town car and great mileage this would work. I recommend it only for experienced driver. I would not want a new driver in it--didnt feel very solid/safe in case of accident

Family Car Ranked 2016 Toyota Corolla better.
"More solid, more room in the back seat. Versa had 3 seatbelts in the back, but they would have to be tiny people to fit 3. No way it would fit 3 teens/adults in back."
Would Buy Ranked 2016 Toyota Corolla better.
"The Corolla felt safer and more solid than the Versa. Had a smoother ride and more interior space,"
