Model Highlights

The 2016 Nissan Versa is offered in both sedan and hatchback body styles. Four trim levels are offered on the Versa sedan: S, S Plus, SV and SL. All are powered by a 109-hp 1.6L 4-cylinder with continuously variable valve timing. In the S, a 5-speed manual transmission puts power to the front wheels, while a 4-speed automatic is optional. The other three trims are equipped with Nissan's Xtronic continuously variable transmission (CVT). When so equipped, the Versa sedan delivers an EPA estimate of 36 mpg on the highway.

Even the base S trim offers enough features to keep drivers and passengers comfortable. These include air conditioning, an AM/FM/CD stereo with two auxiliary audio inputs, a tachometer, power steering, trip computer, tilt steering wheel and a 6-way adjustable driver's seat. In addition to the CVT, the S Plus adds cruise control, tilt steering and a rear lip spoiler.

In the SV, buyers will find power mirrors, locks and windows, with driver's side one-touch auto up/down, upgraded trip computer, remote keyless entry and a USB port.

The top-of-the-line SL includes 16-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, variable-speed windshield wipers, passenger visor vanity mirror, keyless entry and ignition, a 60/40 split-folding rear seat, silver and chrome interior accents, an integrated 5.8-inch display that includes navigation and an iPod interface, as well as steering-wheel-mounted audio controls.

Packaged options for the Versa sedan include an SV Tech Package that includes a rear view monitor and a navigation system with NissanConnect, and an SV Apearance Package with chrome accents, fog lamps, variable intermittent wipers and 15" alloy wheels.

The Versa Note 5-door hatchback features a unique exterior design beyond its configuration, including a distinctive grille and headlight treatment, as well as creased and sculpted sheet metal along the sides. Based upon Nissan's international-selling Note, the Versa Note is optioned much like its sedan counterpart and powered by the same 109-hp 1.6L four. A 5-speed manual is standard on the S, while the Xtronic CVT is standard on the rest of the range. Like the sedan the Versa Note comes in S, SL and SV trim. It features 115.5 cubic feet of interior volume, with best-in-class cargo space of 21.4 cubic feet. An available Divide-N-Hide Adjustable Floor provides enhanced interior utility, and the standard 60/40 split-fold rear seat makes carrying larger objects a snap.

Model News

For 2016, the Nissan Versa receives minor updates, including a standard 4-speaker audio system on the base model.

Value Writeup

As the least expensive car in America, the 2016 Nissan Versa offers exceptional value per dollar. Few other cars in the compact segment can match it for base price. Even the top-trim SL starts at only $18,660. That price buys a lot of car, both in features and in spaciousness. Fuel economy is strong too; the CVT-equipped Versa achieves up to 35 mpg combined, according to the EPA. With the 5-door Versa Note, hatchback lovers get a car loaded with intelligent interior features and functionality for people on the go, all while carrying a price tag lower than the Ford Fiesta and Honda Fit.
