2015 Nissan Versa Note vs. 2015 Honda Fit
Buying an affordable small car is a big decision, and you’re probably looking at several factors when trying to make your choice. You’ll likely take a close look at power and capability as well as what technology features you can count on to make your life easier.
It may be helpful to take a closer look at your top contenders side by side, such as with the 2015 Nissan Versa Note and the Honda Fit. Let’s check them out.
Power and Capability
Powered by a 1.6-liter DOHC 16-valve four-cylinder engine, the 2015 Nissan Versa Note packs a powerful punch. The vehicle comes standard with front-wheel drive and a five-speed manual transmission. You’ll also be free to upgrade to the Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission for a simpler driving experience.
The vehicle is equipped with a four-wheel anti-lock braking system, Electronic Brake Force Distribution, and Brake Assist so you can stay in control even when you’re coming to a stop. Driving the Versa Note is a joy since the vehicle offers a smooth ride thanks to excellent suspension as well as little road noise.
An aluminum-alloy inline four-cylinder 16-valve DOHC i-VTEC engine and a standard six-speed manual transmission power the Honda Fit. It also offers a Continuously Variable Transmission and even offers a Sport Mode. The vehicle comes with Brake Assist, Electronic Brake Force Distribution, and an anti-lock braking system.
The biggest difference between the two vehicles is in the way they drive. The Honda Fit has quite a bit of road noise due to the Honda Continuously Variable Transmission. It also is a somewhat rougher ride compared with the Versa Note.
The 2015 Nissan Versa offers an intuitive group of entertainment technology features that make owning the small vehicle more enjoyable than ever. The standard AM/FM/CD audio system has four speakers; MP3, Windows Media Audio, and CD playback capability; a Radio Data System, speed-sensitive volume control, and an auxiliary audio input jack. You can enjoy it all with the illuminated steering wheel-mounted audio controls.
Or get even more out of the Versa with the premium AM/FM/CD audio system with 5.8-inch color touchscreen display with streaming audio via Bluetooth wireless technology, SiriusXM satellite radio, and a USB port.
In comparison, the Honda Fit looks like it may be the winner of this category on paper, but once again, it’s the functionality that makes the Honda fall behind. The vehicle’s infotainment system is difficult to use and sluggish at best. It can’t even be fully compared to the system in the Versa, which is not only simple to use but highly responsive.
