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.

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:
Individual options are limited to small trim and protection items.
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.
