Subcompact cars are neither smooth nor quiet. But some are smoother and quieter than others, and the 2012 Nissan Versa is tuned to be just that. If the category has...
... a cruiser, the new Versa is it. But it’s also easy around town and in parking lots, with light steering, a tight turning radius and good visibility. The continuously variable transmission (CVT) remains a polarizing proposition in the automotive world, but Nissan has made great strides in recent years and, especially in when used in conjunction with a car like the Versa, we’re fans. If you’re looking for a lively dance partner, check out something like the pricier Ford Fiesta. If you’re more intrigued by the idea of a condensed version of a comfortable
mid-size sedan, you’ll like the Versa.
