If you’re in the market for a subcompact sedan, the Nissan Versa and the Kia Rio are likely at the top of your list. While both of these models are good options, the team at Charlie Clark Nissan of El Paso prefers the Nissan Versa. In this blog, we’ll show you why we’re biased regarding comparing the Nissan Versa vs. Kia Rio.
If You’re Looking for a Manual Transmission, Nissan Versa is For You If you’re a big fan of manual transmissions, you’ll love that the new Nissan Versa offers this option. The Kia Rio is not available with a manual transmission which will likely sway some toward the versatile Versa!
Affordable Starting Price Point for the Nissan Versa When comparing the Nissan Versa vs. Kia Rio, the price will likely be looked at rather carefully. If you’re a budget-conscious car shopper, you’ll be pleased to know that the Nissan Versa’s baseline model is less expensive than a comparable Kia Rio. If you’d like to upgrade to a higher trim level, such as the SV or SR, you’ll pay a bit more, but you’ll get a slew of technology upgrades that you and your passengers will welcome! SV and SR Packages Offer Incredible Value for New Nissan Versa Shoppers If you’re looking for the absolute least expensive Nissan Versa, you’ll likely want the S trim level, but if you’re looking for the best bang for your buck, we’d recommend either the SV or SR packages. While you pay a small amount more for either of these trim levels, you’ll get many upgrades. Both higher-end models feature an upgraded six-speaker audio system, additional driver assistance features, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The SR model adds heated front seats, automatic climate control, and adaptive cruise control.
Nissan Puts Safety First with the Nissan Versa Nissan has long focused on consumer safety in all of its automobiles. This is no different from the latest Nissan Versa. This shows due to the Versa's highly sought-after 5-star NHTSA overall safety rating. The Kia Rio didn’t receive this safety rating which should be another vote towards the Versa in this closely fought battle of the Nissan Versa vs. Kia Rio. Head Down to Charlie Clark
