Safety

In the past twenty years hundreds of infants and young children have died after being left in vehicles, usually by accident. When turning the vehicle off, drivers of the Versa SV/SR are reminded to check the back seat if they opened the rear door before starting out. The Elantra Sedan doesn’t offer a back seat reminder.

Over 200 people are killed each year when backed over by motor vehicles. The Versa has standard Rear Automatic Braking that uses rear sensors to monitor and automatically apply the brakes to prevent a rear collision. The Elantra Sedan doesn’t offer backup collision prevention brakes.

Both the Versa and the Elantra Sedan have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, driver knee airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, front wheel drive, height adjustable front shoulder belts, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, crash mitigating brakes, rearview cameras, available daytime running lights, blind spot warning systems, rear cross-path warning and driver alert monitors.

Warranty

There are over 29 percent more Nissan dealers than there are Hyundai dealers, which makes it easier should you ever need service under the Versa’s warranty.

Tires and Wheels

The Versa has a standard easy tire fill system. When inflating the tires, the vehicle’s integrated tire pressure sensors keep track of the pressure as the tires fill and tell the driver when the tires are inflated to the proper pressure. The Elantra Sedan doesn’t offer vehicle monitored tire inflation.

Suspension and Handling

The Versa has standard front and rear stabilizer bars, which help keep the Versa flat and controlled during cornering. The Elantra Sedan base model’s suspension doesn’t offer a rear stabilizer bar.

Chassis

The Nissan Versa may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 250 to 400 pounds less than the Hyundai Elantra Sedan.

The Versa is 4.9 inches shorter than the Elantra Sedan, making the Versa easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

Cargo Capacity

The Versa has a larger trunk than the Elantra Sedan (14.7 vs. 14.4 cubic feet).

Ergonomics

The Versa SR has a standard remote vehicle starting system, so the vehicle can be started from inside the driver's house. This allows the driver to comfortably warm up the engine before going out to the vehicle. The climate system will also automatically heat or cool the interior. The Elantra Sedan doesn’t offer a remote starting system.

The Versa’s driver’s power window opens or closes with one touch of the window control, making it more convenient at drive-up windows and toll booths. The Elantra Sedan’s standard driver’s power window switch has to be held the entire time to close it fully.

The Versa has a standard automatic headlight on/off feature. When the ignition is on, the headlights automatically turn on at dusk and off after dawn. The Elantra Sedan has an automatic headlight on/off feature standard only on the SEL/Value Edition/Eco/Sport/Limited.
