The 2020 Nissan Versa and the 2020 Toyota Yaris are two value-rich sedans on the market. But which one holds more value in a head-to-head comparison? Here’s what you need to know to decide for yourself.


When it comes to technology, each car comes standard with a 7-inch touch screen infotainment system. However, the Versa gets the edge by offering available Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ while the Yaris does not offer either one.

In terms of safety and driver assistance features, the Versa also has the advantage. Each Yaris comes standard with automatic emergency braking and low-speed forward collision warning, but aside from those, there’s not much more. The Versa comes standard with pedestrian detection, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning and automatic high beams, and has multiple other available features. These features make the 2020 Versa ideal for small families who want to stay safer during every drive.


Both vehicles boast engines that dish out great gas mileage, ideal for a daily commute. The Versa is packing a 1.6-liter inline-four engine, while the Yaris has a 1.5-liter inline-four engine. They both deliver a max of 32 mpg city and 40 MPG highway.* However, the Versa delivers 122 horsepower compared to the 106 horsepower packed into the Yaris. This makes the Versa a little better at providing a peppy drive for your daily commute with its combination of power and efficiency.


The 2020 Versa has a starting MSRP of $14,730, while the Yaris starts at $15,650. Both of those are incredible prices for affordable sedans. The Versa remains more affordable, even at higher trim levels. Based on price, the Versa packs more value into the purchase by offering plenty of great standard features.
