2014 Scion xD has more to offer than Nissan Versa Note

Not all hatchbacks are created equal, xD reflects that

NAPERVILLE, Ill., Jan. 31, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- As manufacturers continue to improve the subcompact car segment of the automotive industry, the competition between the various makes and models is only going to become fiercer. Since Scion debuted just 10 years ago, they have really set that particular class of vehicles on its ear with eye catching designs that not only look great but also can be of use to their owners. Other manufacturers can try to copy this formula, but have still not really duplicated it. For the first time car buyer that is just starting out, one of the best tools for finding the right vehicle for their needs, head-to-head comparisons can be the most useful. That's why Scion of Naperville has done the work of comparing the 2014 Scion xD vs. the 2014 Nissan Versa Note.

In every battle there are slight wins and losses that can decide the battle, but the 2014 Scion xD has beaten the Nissan Versa Note at almost every turn. Looking at the engines of each vehicle reveals that the 1.8-liter, four-cylinder engine of the Scion xD produces 128 horsepower and the 1.6-liter, four-cylinder of the Nissan Versa Note makes significantly less than that at just 109 horsepower. Conventional wisdom would say that the Versa Note would then be able to make a comeback with fuel-economy. This, again, is a false notion in a practical sense. The 2014 Scion xD and 2014 Nissan Versa Note have the same Environmental Protection Agency fuel-economy rating in the city at 27 miles per gallon. There is a slight gain on the highway mileage for the Versa Note, but not quite enough to make up for the rest of the short comings.

One of the most unique features of the 2014 Scion xD is that the rear seat can slide forward or back as well as recline. This is more than rather uncommon in the subcompact automotive segment. Like the rest of its Scion cousins, the 2014 xD can be outfitted with a very wide range of aftermarket, Scion approved accessories to make sure every driver is behind the wheel of a vehicle that perfectly matches their personality.

The entire Scion of Naperville inventory can be viewed online at www.scionofnaperville.com. Their showroom is located at 1488 West Ogden Avenue, Naperville, IL, 60540. Anyone with questions about the availability of the 2014 Scion xD and its dominance over the 2014 Nissan Versa Note, should call 855-315-0609. Callers can use the same opportunity to schedule a test drive.
