To reliably start during all conditions and help handle large electrical loads, the Versa has a standard 470 amp battery. The Corolla’s 356 amp battery isn’t as powerful.

The Versa has vehicle speed sensitive variable-assist power steering, for low-effort parking, better control at highway speeds and during hard cornering, and a better feel of the road. The Corolla doesn’t offer variable-assist power steering.

The Versa’s front to rear weight distribution is more even (53% to 47%) than the Corolla’s (60.3% to 39.7%). This gives the Versa more stable handling and braking.

For better maneuverability, the Versa’s turning circle is 1.4 feet tighter than the Corolla’s (34.2 feet vs. 35.6 feet). The Versa’s turning circle is 2.1 feet tighter than the Corolla XRS’ (34.2 feet vs. 36.3 feet).

The Versa’s available driver’s power window opens or closes with one touch of the window control, making it more convenient at drive-up windows and toll booths. The Corolla’s optional driver’s power window switch has to be held the entire time to close it fully.

The Versa has standard lighted power door lock and power window switches so that they are easily found at night. The Corolla doesn’t have lighted switches.

The Versa’s variable intermittent wipers have an adjustable delay to allow the driver to choose a setting that best clears the windshield during light rain or mist. The Corolla’s standard fixed intermittent wipers only have one fixed delay setting, so the driver will have to manually switch them between slow and intermittent.

To improve rear visibility by keeping the rear window clear, the Versa has a standard rear wiper. The Corolla doesn’t offer a rear wiper.

The Versa SL has a standard center folding armrest for the rear passengers. A center armrest helps make rear passengers more comfortable. The Corolla doesn’t offer a rear seat center armrest.

The Versa’s available GPS navigation system has a real-time traffic update feature that offers alternative routes to automatically bypass traffic problems. (Service available in a limited number of metro areas.) The Corolla’s available navigation system doesn’t offer real-time traffic updates.
