2011 Nissan Versa

2011 Nissan Versa Review

(3 Stars)  Capacious and versatile, albeit a bit boring

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Nissan's global B platform is used for many of the company's models. Perhaps the smallest is the Nissan Versa. A full step below the Sentra in both price and size. The Versa is in fact, the most inexpensive new car available in the Nissan line, With a base price of just over 10,000USD. There are certainly compromises that must be made to keep the cost of this car so exceedingly low, but it remains an excellent value for the money, offering excellent options such as Navigation and Satellite radio. The Versa is even able to offer more rear seat legroom than the much larger and more expensive Maxima. Cost considerations much come into play somewhere though, and this shows itself in the form of its strut suspension, drum brakes, and standard 14" wheels. None of these tradeoffs keep the Versa from being an excellent inexpensive, high economy car.

There are two engines available on the Versa. The base 1.6 liter four cylinder produces 107 Hp and the optional 1.8 liter four cylinder puts out 122 HP. Transmission options include a four speed automatic, five and six speed manuals, and a continuously variable transmission. (CVT)
