The Versa was once available as a sedan or hatchback, but the five-door hatchback has since become its own, standalone model called the Versa Note. The Versa received a full redesign in 2013, giving it a look that will help it better compete against its sharp-looking rivals.

What's New for 2015

For 2015, the Versa receives an updated look that puts it more in line with the rest of Nissan's lineup. Imagining a resized Sentra gives you a good idea of what to expect from this subcompact. The 2015 Versa also receives modern amenities, like Bluetooth, to make it more appealing tech-focused young buyers.

Choosing Your Versa

As a subcompact car, the Versa ranges from relatively stripped down to loaded up with plenty of bells and whistles for its class. Despite all of these choices, the small sedan only has one engine available, a 1.6-liter four-cylinder that produces 109 horsepower and 107 pound-feet of torque.

There is one drivetrain option, as buyers can choose from three transmissions, but these options are restricted to certain trim levels. The only version available with the five-speed manual or the four-speed automatic is the base S trim, whereas the Xtronic continuously variable transmission (CVT) is standard on all of the upper trims. CVTs are not the greatest in terms of driving enjoyment, but it helps the subcompact get 31 mpg city and 40 mpg highway to the five-speed manual's 27 mpg city and 36 mpg highway.

The 2015 Versa is available in four trim levels:

Nissan Versa


The 2015 Versa S starts things off for the small sedan at a super-low base price of $11,990. At this price point, the Versa comes with only the bare essentials needed to pilot a car in this era, including 15-inch steel wheels, cloth seats, air conditioning, and a two-speaker audio system with AM/FM/MP3/CD capabilities and an auxiliary input. Opting for the four-speed auto adds $1,500 to the base price.

S Plus

The S Plus trim brings the 2015 Nissan Versa to $13,990. This trim level gives the Versa all of the basic amenities that buyers expect from a 2015 model year car. It comes standard with the Xtronic CVT, rear spoiler, a four-speajer audio system, Bluetooth connectivity and cruise control with steering wheel-mounted controls.

Nissan Versa


The SV pushes the Versa sedan even further into the 21st century, but it also includes a price hike to $15,530. The Versa SV adds in body-colored side-view mirrors with power operation, chrome door handles, outside temperature display, keyless entry, power door locks and windows, map lights, a driver's seat armrest, upscale cloth upholstery, split-folding rear seat and a USB connection for the audio system. This is also the lowest trim level that has optional alloy wheels available.

Nissan Versa


The SL trim level loads the 2015 Versa up with all the features that a buyer could want out of an entry-level, subcompact sedan for just $16,890. These features include 16-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, NissanConnect with mobile apps, hands-free texting, push-button ignition, variable intermittent wipers, and a premium audio system with a 5-inch display, SiriusXM and Bluetooth audio streaming.

CarsDirect Tip

The $11,990 starting price may seem intriguing, but the extra features you get with the slightly more upscale S Plus trim level are the better bargain. This is compounded by the extra 6 mpg highway and 4 mpg city that the Xtronic CVT helps the S Plus get over the manual-equipped Versa S.
