Automotive Editor -

When it comes to getting around, staying comfortably within your means is easy with the Nissan Versa. The subcompact sedan offers perfectly acceptable daily transportation at a price that just isn't low, but the lowest. Starting at just $12,855, the Versa is the cheapest route to putting a new car in your garage.

What's New for 2017

The mid-level SV model gains a Special Edition option package.

Choosing Your Nissan Versa

Despite its economy mission, the front-drive Versa doesn't skimp on passenger room. In fact, the backseat is easily the most spacious in this class, and everyone enjoys the type of smooth ride usually found in much larger vehicles. At 14.9 cubic feet, the trunk reminds us of a family car, as well.

The engine is more in line with our expectations for budget transportation. Every Versa is powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder that produces a modest 109 horsepower. Base models run with a five-speed manual transmission or optional four-speed automatic. Everything else gets a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Models equipped with the CVT deliver an excellent 35 mpg in combined city and highway driving. Efficiency drops to 30 mpg with the manual, or 29 mpg with the four-speed automatic.

The Versa is offered in four trim levels:

S

Comes with the manual or four-speed automatic transmission, plus basic equipment like air conditioning, 15-inch steel wheels, power mirrors, Bluetooth phone, and a four-speaker sound system. Note that power windows and locks are not part of the deal.

S Plus

Adds the CVT, cruise control, and a rear spoiler.

SV

Gives a major boost to the interior with power windows and locks, upgraded trim and seat fabric, a split-folding rear seat, expanded instrumentation, maps light, and a USB port. Keyless entry is also standard. The newly available SV Special Edition package brings in another bundle of features, including a rearview camera, intermittent wipers, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a display sound system with satellite radio and Bluetooth audio. The outside receives alloy wheels and chrome trim.

SL

Gets the SV's options as standard, plus navigation, keyless ignition, side mirrors with integrated turn signals, and 16-inch wheels.

Individual options are limited to small trim and protection items.

CarsDirect Tip

The CVT offers enough of an efficiency advantage that we wouldn't order a Versa without it, which leaves out the S and it's deliriously low price. If you're moving down from a larger car, we recommend the SV, which provides the conveniences most buyers expect in a modern passenger vehicle.
