The 2018 Nissan Versa may be a subcompact sedan, but it adds the room and comfort found in larger models for just $12,875, making it the lowest priced new car in the US market.

What's New for 2018

For 2018, the Nissan Versa gains standard map lamps and adjustable front headrests for all models.

Choosing Your Nissan Versa

Nissan offers the front-wheel drive 2018 Versa sedan in three trims: S, S Plus, and SV. This model seats five, but is most comfortable for four – in fact, it's very comfortable for four, with 37 inches of legroom, a full two inches more than the mid-size Altima that's two classes above the Versa. Cargo space measures 14.9 cubic feet, which also rivals the 15.4 cubes in the Altima. On models with a 60/40 split fold-down rear seat, expanded cargo space is available. The Versa Note hatchback is marketed separately.

All 2018 Versa sedans come with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine generating 109 horsepower and 107 pound-feet of torque. A five-speed manual transmission works alongside the engine in the base trim, earning an EPA-estimated 27 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway. The other two trims come with a continuously variable automatic transmission, making an EPA-estimated 31/39 city/highway.

Only the SV trim offers a package. However, 15-inch black alloy wheels are a $495 option across the model line.

S

Costing $12,875, the Versa S is the value leader. There are no options or upgrades available, however, including an automatic transmission. That's right, the base Versa isn't even available with an automatic.

It does have power-operated side mirrors, a tilt steering column, cloth seats, air conditioning, a four-speaker audio system with a CD player, an audio input jack, and Bluetooth connectivity – we wouldn't mention most of this stuff normally, but it's a big deal on a sub-$13,000 car.

S Plus

Priced from $15,015, the Versa S Plus swaps out the manual gearbox for an automatic transmission. This model adds a rear spoiler with an integrated LED brake light, cruise control, and updated instrumentation. A fifth paint color, Cayenne Red, is also available.

SV

Costing $16,605, the Versa SV pulls out all the stops for this model – yes, we're speaking relatively. Key features with this version include keyless entry, a split fold-down rear seat, power windows and door locks, and upgraded fabric seats. For an additional $500, buyers may opt for a Special Edition Package adding fog lights, aluminum alloy wheels, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a five-inch display audio interface, satellite radio, and a rearview monitor.

CarsDirect Tip

Although the base model has an attractively low price, we recommend shoppers choose the SV with Special Edition Package. Here, you’ll enjoy a well-equipped small car equipped with (some) of the amenities today’s car buyers demand.
