Redesign Info

The next full redesign of the Nissan Versa is currently not expected until at least 2018 or 2019. Unfortunately, no real details are available yet hinting at what the subcompact car's next form will take.

The current Versa, now in its 2nd generation, has without a doubt become long in the tooth. Its last redesign was for the 2012 model year. It wasn't until 2014 that the hatchback variant debuted as a completely separate model called the Versa Note.

Priced from $15,065, the Versa Note was meant to compete more evenly with segment leaders like the Honda Fit. On the other hand, the Versa sedan has been a favorite among shoppers looking for a low base price approaching $10,000 when factoring incentives and dealer discounts. On paper, the Versa starts at $12,825, making it one of the most affordable cars on the market today.

Powertrain details are still a long way off. For reference, the current car uses a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine rated at 109 hp with 107 lb-ft of torque. The car is rated at up to 36 mpg on the highway when equipped with the standard 5-speed manual, and 40 mpg with the available CVT.

Waning demand has hurt small car sales, and a slew of newer alternatives like the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 and Toyota Yaris iA present compelling value propositions. In the case of the iA, shoppers also get the added benefit of standard low-speed automatic emergency braking.

Will the next Versa reinvigorate Nissan's small car sales? That remains to be seen.

Release Date

Nissan has not yet announced a release date for the 2019 Versa. At the moment, we anticipate an introduction either in late 2018 or early 2019.

Stay tuned for updates as they become available.
