Sheridan Showdown: 2018 Nissan Versa Note vs. Honda Fit

August 22nd, 2018 by

Thank you for choosing Sheridan Nissan! We understand that buying or leasing a new car is no easy task. At our Nissan dealership, we want to make it seamless for you, from the minute you step on our lot, to the minute you drive home with your new car. We offer a wide selection of sedans, SUVs and trucks to guarantee you’ll find a car that fits your needs.

If you are looking for a subcompact hatchback sedan, consider the 2018 Nissan Versa Note. Compared to the 2018 Honda Fit, The Versa Note offers more features, such as more cargo space and a complimentary 36 month/36,000 mile-roadside assistance through NissanConnect® (applicable to flat tire changes, jumpstarts, vehicle lockouts and emergency fuel delivery). See how the two compare!


The Nissan Intelligent Key® (not made for Honda Fits) allows you to open your Versa Note and/or its trunk without actually using the key as long as you have it on you. Open your door without having to stop to look for your keys. You also have a push-to-start button that will get your car going if your key is in your pocket or purse.

Nissan Intelligent Mobility™ is Nissan’s optimized package to help you be a better, safer driver. In the 2018 Versa Note, it provides you with an advanced airbag system1, vehicle dynamic control (VDC)2 and a traction control system (TCS), anti-locking braking system (ABS)3, electronic force brake distribution (EBD)3 and a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) in conjunction with the available Easy-Fill Tire Alert4 (this will let you know when each tire is adequately filled with air).

VDC and TCS work together to monitor your steering and braking to ensure the car handles precisely under changing road conditions.

Honda Fit does not offer this comprehensive package of features.


The Nissan Versa Note allows for more cargo space than the Honda Fit (18.8 cubic feet vs. 16.6 cubic feet). The Versa Note also features a Divide-N-Hide® Adjustable Floor. You can lower or lift the floor. The rear seats fold down to create more space, depending on what type of cargo you need to carry. Additionally, if you need a back seat open for another passenger, the rear seats can fold in a 60/40 split. You can also keep more valuable items out of site by lifting up the adjustable floor.


This Nissan hatchback has a better fuel economy than the Honda. The Versa Note gets 31 mpg city/ 39 mpg highway, while the Fit gets 29 mpg city/36 mpg highway.

Both cars have comparable engines and put out similar power, but the Versa Note’s Xtronic® Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) supplies power to the engine more efficiently.
