About Nissan Versa

It used to be that a car's low price came at the expense of creature comforts. But that's not the case for the 2017 Nissan Versa. At a starting price of less than $13,000 including destination charges, the basic Versa S still comes with air conditioning and a 4-speaker audio system with Bluetooth connectivity. It also offers low cost of ownership, excellent fuel economy, and a surprisingly spacious rear seat. Even when you load it up you'll have trouble breaking the $18,000 mark. Fine, the Ford Fiesta and Honda Fit both offer better driving dynamics, and the Chevy Sonic and Kia Rio both look better. But none of those cars can come close to the Versa sedan's low price.

"It is said to be the cheapest car available, however it is very good at that price point, much more than my expectations. Fuel efficient and best leg space available among cars in that category. Great for city drive and commute. Very Comfortable."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"Gave our Civic to daughter and purchased the 2016 Versa as a replacement and to tow behind an RV. Fun car to drive, except at highway speeds, the car wanders a bit, like there is not enough +caster in the alignment. (will address this with the dealer at next service) The car does not represent itself as anything other then what it is, an economical car with few frills...just what we wanted."
