The 2015 Nissan Versa Note may be a tiny subcompact hatchback, but its back seat is worthy of a mid-size sedan. With 38.3 inches of rear legroom, the little 2015 Nissan Versa Note trumps the much bigger and more expensive 2016 Nissan Maxima sedan’s available rear legroom by more than 4 inches.
It’s not just the 2015 Nissan Versa Note’s back seat space that betters its bigger brother, as the Versa Note’s cargo capacity manages to outshine the 2016 Nissan Maxima’s cargo hold by 4.5 cubic feet with all seats in use.

While not all subcompact cars offer as spacious of rear seats and cargo holds as the 2015 Nissan Versa Note, the 2015 Honda Fit is another similarly roomy and versatile small subcompact hatchback. Offering an extra inch of rear seat legroom over the 2015 Nissan Versa Note, the 2015 Honda Fit also comes with marginally better rear seat legroom than the mid-size 2015 Honda Accord sedan. Likewise, the Fit trumps the Accord’s cargo space by nearly a cubic-foot with all seats in use.
Going small doesn’t mean buyers need to sacrifice space. While both the 2015 Nissan Versa Note and 2015 Honda Fit lack some of the available luxuries of their bigger stable mates, buyers on a budget can still enjoy owning a comfortable and spacious new vehicle for well under $22,000.
