Model News

The Versa will be offered for the first time with a navigation system -- arriving later in the model year as part of a Navigation/Satellite Package. Also featured in the package, only offered on the top-of-the-line SL models, will be two subscription services: XM NavTraffic Real-Time Traffic Information and XM Satellite Radio.

The new 1.6 models introduced last year continue with few changes, but Versa 1.8 models are now further differentiated from the basic 1.6 models with an upgraded front grille, new interior fabrics, a new wheel cover design, and reddish-orange illumination with white-illuminated instruments.

A new 16-inch alloy wheel option is offered on the 1.8 SL models, and they get standard electronic stability control and an iPod interface. All the elements of last year's Sport Package, including side sills, a spoiler and more aggressive front and rear fascias, are now standard on the 1.8 SL.


Value Writeup

The Versa feels more substantial than other cars in this class and has a nice, smooth ride, along with a quiet cabin and an especially roomy interior; Nissan claims best-in-class rear legroom. In its upper S and SL trims, it can be very well equipped by checking a few options boxes. And for those who wish to keep it basic, the Versa is one of the first models you should look at. With a starting price of just $9,990, the Versa Base is one of the least expensive new cars available in the U.S.


Model Highlights

The front-wheel-drive Versa is offered as a 4-door sedan or 5-door hatchback, with two different engines--designated 1.6 and 1.8, with 107-horsepower 1.6-liter and 122-hp 1.8 liter 4-cylinder engines. 1.6 models are only offered as sedans, while both body styles are offered in 1.8 form.

The 1.6 Base model is only offered with a 5-speed manual transmission, and the top-of-the-line 1.8 SL comes only with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), Most of the other models come with the choice of a 6-speed manual gearbox or conventional 4-speed automatic.

A MacPherson strut front suspension and torsion beam rear suspension, with stabilizer bars front and back, is tuned for a comfortable ride while also maintaining maneuverability. All Versas have a front disc, rear drum brake arrangement; anti-lock brakes are included with 1.8 models but optional on the 1.6. Hatchback models are a little more versatile, with seats that fold forward easily to expand cargo space; the back seats don't fold in most Versas, but top SL sedans get a split-folding back seat and trunk pass-through.

With either engine, the Versa performs reasonably well; 1.6 models are considerably lighter, so they don't feel any slower. The manual transmissions shift easily and smoothly, and as for automatics, shoppers should take both versions--the CVT along with the conventional 4-speed--out for a spin and decide which one they like best; the CVT allows faster acceleration and offers the best EPA ratings, at 28 mpg city, 34 highway, but invites more engine noise.

The 1.6 Base model is about as simple as new cars come today, with no power windows or locks, no air conditioning and no radio either. The upgraded standard 1.6 model adds air conditioning. Meanwhile 1.8 S models include a 4-speaker sound system, cargo area lamp and adjustable rear headrests. On 1.8 SL models, there's a 180-watt sound system with iPod interface, cruise control, keyless entry, power locks and windows, larger alloy wheels and electronic stability control. All Versas get front side-impact airbags and full-length side-curtain bags. The Versa 1.8 can be equipped with a Bluetooth hands-free interface, XM Satellite Radio and the Intelligent Key entry and ignition system and a Navigation/Satellite package will add an in-dash navigation system with 5-inch screen, to arrive late in the model year.

Summary
Nissan (Nissan North America, Inc.) is recalling certain model year 2007-2012 Nissan Versa vehicles manufactured May 8, 2006, to November 12, 2012, that were sold or ever registered in the District of Columbia, Connecticut, Delaware, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

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).
