2016 Hyundai Accent vs. 2016 Nissan Versa

The Hyundai Accent and the Nissan Versa are vehicles usually classified in the same category. Though quite a number of people would go for the Nissan Versa rather than the Hyundai, there is plenty of evidence to show that the 2016 Hyundai Accent is easily the better of the two. To demonstrate this, these are just a few of the differences which make the Hyundai Accent more superior.

Design & Style

The Nissan Versa has external features such as sharper creases and LED lights. The Versa’s overall looks are pretty divisive, with some people loving it and others hating it. The Hyundai, on the other hand, is easily recognizable due to its unique design and majority of people appreciate its good looks. This is hard to do in an automotive marked where all the car makers are trying to come up with car designs that will sell the most.

In the interior, the Nissan Versa has a fault or two in an otherwise well-designed interior. Despite the intuitive arrangement of buttons and other controls is, most of its surfaces feel cheaply made. The vehicle could also do with some more rear leg room. The Hyundai Accent has an interior that is well balanced. Quality materials such as leather have been used to give the vehicle a premium feel, and as expected, all the instruments have been intuitively placed. In the Hyundai, you will feel like you are in a much more expensive car compared to its true value.

Technology & Safety

Safety laws in many parts of the world means that most cars have more or less the same type of safety features. These include driver and passenger airbags, antilock braking systems and seat belt pre-tensioners. However, the Hyundai goes further than this by providing more safety features including pedestrian detection systems, lane departure assistance and knee airbags.

As far as technology goes, the Hyundai has nothing but the very latest equipment on board. Examples of these include a handsfree smart trunk, smart cruise control, LED daytime running lights and an integrated memory system all of which are not present in the Nissan Versa


The 2016 Nissan Versa has a base engine that has a 2.0-liter displacement with double overhead camshafts, producing 160 horsepower and 146 lb ft of torque. On the other hand, the more powerful 2016 Hyundai Accent has a 2-lier inline 4 engine producing 174 horsepower mated to a six-speed manual transmission, or a six-speed automatic transmission depending on the buyer’s preferences. The Hyundai has more power output, has a sharper response and generally handles better compared to the Nissan Versa.

The Bottom Line

The Hyundai Accent has been tried and tested over time, and the 2016 version is the culmination of a lot of research and development. The result is a vehicle that has everything you need, and nothing that you don’t. it is also reliable and fun to drive as well. Compared to the Nissan Versa, the Hyundai Accent is easily the better choice.
