When it comes to standard features, the Versa is pretty miserly, refusing to fit entry-level trim with plenty of amenities you wouldn’t even think to check for. The following features are standard with the 2019 Toyota Yaris and not with the 2019 Nissan Versa:

  • 6-Way Adjustable Driver’s Seat: The Toyota lets you adjust your driver’s seat more precisely for better support.
  • Remote Keyless Entry System With Push Button Start: You can open the vehicle and start up the engine without taking out the keys.
  • Daytime Running Lights (DRL): DRLs provide low-level lighting during the day to enhance your visibility and improve safety.
  • 60/40-Split Fold-Down Rear Seats: Flip your seats down in seconds to extend cargo space into the rear row.

The Toyota Yaris even provides a Low-Speed Pre-Collision System, which scans for potential collisions and provides a warning to help you avoid them. The Nissan Versa doesn’t provide such technology with any trim level or package.
