Model News

The brand-new 2007 Versa fits under the Sentra as Nissan's entry level model, and signals the manufacturer's foray into the sub-compact market. And in a segment where every inch of interior space is appreciated, the Versa's 94.3 cubic feet of passenger volume stands near the top of its class.

The Versa is powered by a 1.8L four-cylinder that can be matched with a six-speed manual transmission, a four-speed automatic transmission, or a CVT. Body styles include a sedan and a hatchback, and both can be had in either base S trim or uplevel SL trim. The SL adds alloy wheels, a 60/40 split fold-down rear seat (to the sedan), cloth seat trim, and power accoutrements. The SL also gets a six-disc in-dash CD changer and auxiliary audio input jack.

Pricing starts at $12,550 regardless of the number of doors on the car, which is competitive with other players in the market.


Value Writeup

Nissan's 2007 Versa is one of the most spacious sub-compacts available today, with the hatchback boasting 17.8 cubic feet of luggage behind the standard 60/40 split fold-down rear seat and a very generous 50.4 cubic feet when configured in full cargo mode. Both sedan and hatchback also offer a roomier cabin and more head and legroom than most competitors in its class. A low entry price of $12,550 and notable standard equipment such as air conditioning, air bags all around, and a CD player make the Versa an attractive alternative to Honda's Fit and Toyota's Yaris.


Model Highlights

The newest member of Nissan's model lineup, the 2007 Versa hatchback and sedan both start at the same $12,550 base price. The all-new 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine powers the pair of body styles and makes 122 horsepower and 127 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, with a four-speed automatic available for $800 on the base S trim and a CVT as a $1,000 option on the better-equipped SL (which starts at $14,550).

The SL trim adds 15-inch aluminum alloy wheels, power windows and door locks, a remote keyless entry, cruise control, a six-disc CD changer, and an upgraded audio system and interior accents.

The dashboard in the Versa is well designed and not overly complicated, and the Versa utilizes three easy-to-use knobs for its standard air conditioning.

The Versa's brakes are especially impressive, and anti-lock brakes, electronic brake force distribution and brake assist can be added for $250. A power package can be ordered on the base car, and it installs power windows and locks, and a remote keyless entry system among other equipment. A sunroof and a Rockford subwoofer are available on the SL.

The Nissan Versa scores a five star rating in the NHSA crash test. Besides the federally-mandated front air bags, the Versa is unusual for its class in offering both seat mounted side air bags for the front seat passengers, and also head curtain air bags for all outboard seat occupants.

Overall, the Versa is a lot of car for the entry price.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
