2022 Nissan Versa vs. Its Competition

2022 Nissan Versa
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

We like small cars and we cannot lie.

The Versa’s tempting beyond its low sticker price—but so are the Hyundai Accent and Kia Rio, which offer similar features for a low price.

The Nissan Kicks does more than the Versa, for a somewhat higher price, but refinement’s low on its priority list.

The Hyundai Venue hatchback sits in the Kicks’ niche, and its rock-bottom price comes with friendly looks and lots of features.
