Which compact sedan is more practical: Versa or Sonic?

The Versa and the Sonic are both cars designed for those on a budget, so it may surprise you that the Versa Sedan has a starting price that is over $4,000 cheaper than the Sonic. That price gap continues as you go up in trim with the top Versa Sedan SV Special Edition having an MSRP of just $16,440 compared to the Sonic Premier trim with its MSRP of $20,520.

The Versa keeps looking out for your wallet after you buy it too regardless if you opt for the manual or the automatic. We used automatic transmission numbers above because those are the versions that most people will buy.

When you are shopping through compacts, you always have to wonder about interior space, and in that category, though the Versa and the Sonic have the same interior passenger volume at 94 cubic-feet, the Versa puts it to better use and provides more front headroom along with more rear legroom. Legroom up front for both models is the same at 41.8-inches if that was a concern you had.

Nissan is always thinking about the driver, that’s why you can find so many convenient features on any Nissan model including the Versa. For example, the Versa has available fog lights, something that the Sonic cannot brag about.
