Model Preview

The current iteration of the Nissan Versa has been around since the 2020 model year and although its future might be in doubt, we expect Nissan's entry-level model to arrive in 2025 as a carryover model. Details are still unconfirmed, but here's what we know so far about the 2025 Nissan Versa.

Affordable subcompact cars are dropping like flies, with the Hyundai Accent, Kia Rio, and Mitsubishi Mirage all either set to be discontinued or have already gotten the axe. Unfortunately, the Versa might suffer the same fate. According to Automotive News, the Versa is "unlikely to continue" past its current generation. Given this rather grim prognosis, we expect the Versa to soldier on as a carryover model in what might be its last model year.

The Versa received a minor facelift for the 2023 model year, making it surprisingly stylish for an entry-level model. Whereas a lot of affordable subcompacts tend to adopt a cutesy look, the Versa features a more aggressive and angular aesthetic to match the rest of the Nissan lineup, and we don't expect this to change for the 2025 model year.

The 2023 update also extended to the Versa's interior, with the SV trim gaining wireless charging and the SR getting an 8" touchscreen, WiFi hotspot, and adaptive cruise control as standard. The current Versa's interior prioritizes cost-cutting, but still offers niceties like soft-touch materials, three USB ports, voice command, and the aforementioned optional tech goodies. We don't expect any sweeping changes for the 2025 model.

We see no indication that the 2024 Versa will receive an updated powertrain. The current model features a 1,6L four-cylinder engine developing 122 hp and 114 lb-ft of torque. The base transmission on the S trim is a five-speed manual, while a continuously variable transmission is available. The CVT is standard on the SV and SR trims.

We don't have official pricing or a release date for the 2025 Nissan Versa yet. Current Versa pricing ranges from $17,075 for the S to $21,065 for the SR, and we'd expect a slight increase over those figures for 2025.

With the discontinuation of the Kia Rio, the 2025 Versa's only competition will be the Mitsubishi Mirage, which will also soon be leaving the US market.
