    Trip together: 2015 Micra 4AT vs 2009 Versa CVT (fuel economy & odometer comparison)

    I went to Sudbury with two cars and on our way back we stopped at Eagle Nest Gas Station just before North Bay and clocked both. Now both cars traveled together and fueled up again at the same place once back in Ottawa and compaired.

    2015 Nissan Micra Auto 1.6L
    2009 Nissan Versa CVT 1.8L

    From Eagle Nest in North Bay
    2015 Micra 19705km ODO
    2009 Versa 102083km ODO

    To Mac's in Orleans
    2015 Micra 20149km ODO
    2009 Versa 102506km ODO

    Micra calculation
    20149 - 19705 = 444 km
    Filled 26.012L
    5.858 L/100km

    Versa calculation
    102506 - 102083 = 423 km
    Filled 28.717L
    6.789 L/100km

    CONCLUSION

    The Versa travelled 21km less than the Micra
    But the Micra burnt 2.705L less fuel than the Versa
    Both cars travel together, has their recommended tire sizes on and have not separated in anyway.

    Nice comparison. That is quite the difference between the two! I must admit I'm surprised the Versa's fuel economy is that much higher with the CVT.

    I think the older Versa uses an older JATCO CVT than the current Versa. The newer CVT-7 transmission (used in several other cars like Chevy Spark & Mitsubishi Mirage) has a wider gear ratio, with lower RPM highway cruising for even better fuel economy.

    jgoedhard - I don't supposed you checked actual distance between 2 stops via GPS to see which (or both?) cars' odometers were off?
