There is a lot of appeal to a good-looking subcompact hatchback, not limited to their maneuverability
and strong fuel economy. Luckily for drivers in and around Burlington, Ontario, they have a couple options
available. Two models that are very popular right now are the new Nissan Versa Note, and the
Honda Fit. Comparing the two hatchbacks side-by-side is an excellent way to determine the strengths
and weaknesses of each. For the purposes of this comparison, the 2016 Nissan Versa Note SV and
the 2016 Honda Fit EX will be used exclusively.
With the peppy, gas-sipping engine built into the Nissan Versa Note, Burlington, ON area drivers would be hard-pressed to find a more fuel-efficient vehicle at the same low price, thanks to a perfected continuously variable transmission and variable valve timing. The Honda Fit pulls a close second, but falls behind in fuel economy.
While both subcompact hatchbacks seat five, adults passengers may find themselves more comfortable in the Nissan Versa Note because of a longer wheelbase and a rear seat with more hip and head room. The interior also outshines that of the Honda thanks to dashing piano black trim and silver and chrome accents.
The Nissan Versa Note supplies over two cubic feet more of cargo space than the Honda Fit
The height-adjustable driver's seat with armrest is lined with premium cloth trim in the Versa Note.
The Nissan Versa Note utilizes a unique Divide-n-Hide adjustable cargo floor.
Commuters living and working in the Burlington, ON area shouldn't have to settle for less when it comes to in-vehicle entertainment options. The technology that drivers use every time they slide behind the wheel of their hatchback has been greatly improved in the new Nissan Versa Note.
- Versa comes with the NissanConnect infotainment with integrated Bluetooth & Mobile Apps
- SiriusXM radio is available in the Versa Note, but not in the Fit.
- Both models include USB ports for iPod connectivity.
Note comes standard with Upgraded Fine Vision electroluminescent gauges with a tripcomputer and outside temperature display.
