Nissan Versa Vs Mazda2

The 2012 Mazda2 vs. the Nissan Versa

Cox Mazda is proud to bring Bradenton, FL the brand new 2012 Mazda2, featuring bold styling, an athletic stance, and a fuel economy rating that is unmatched by the competition. Plus it’s just fun to drive. Here at Cox Mazda, we’d like to offer drivers in the Sarasota area a quick run-down of how this sharp little subcompact compares with the Nissan Versa.

A Small Vehicle That Delivers Big-Time

With its quick, responsive handling and impressive power-to-weight ratio, this sporty compact car has a surprisingly spacious interior that comfortably seats the driver plus four passengers. That’s just part of what makes the Mazda2 such a unique compact vehicle.

Powered by a solid 1.5L Dual Overhead Cam 16-valve engine, with 100 horsepower and 98 lb-ft of torque, it’s engineered for maximum fuel efficiency, at an EPA estimated 29 mpg city and 35 mpg highway. You’ll go farther on a lot less gas compared to the Nissan Versa, which rates only 26 city and 31 highway.

Along with the Electronic Power Assist Steering, you’ll also get 4-wheel anti-lock brakes, Vehicle Stability Control System with Traction control, remote keyless entry, and a full array of multi-stage airbags.

Standard features include an AM/FM radio, CD player, Bluetooth® hands free calling, and an iPod® friendly auxiliary-audio input, with an optional Navigation system . All audio and cruise controls are conveniently mounted on the steering wheel. An available multi-function trip computer allows you to keep track of fuel usage, average speed, and the outside temperature, Keyless entry and a built in alarm are all standard features, unavailable with the Versa. The specially designed Damping Control Panels (DCP), placed in the floor to ensure a quiet ride are exclusive to this model.
