Nissan Versa Remains Affordable

Reading Time: 2 minutes

With more customers showing interest in bigger vehicles such as pickup trucks and SUVs, it comes as no surprise that there are only a few affordable cars that go below $20,000.

But this isn’t an issue for Nissan, specifically its Versa subcompact sedan. Instead of giving the model an inflated retail price of over $25,000, its 2021 version remains a strong contender for the cheapest vehicle in the subcompact market at only $15,855 (after the mandatory destination charge).

For a new vehicle that comes packed with efficient technology, despite only being equipped with a five-speed manual transmission, a $15,000 price tag is worth the consideration. And for customers looking for a more powerful setup, a Versa sedan that comes with a continuously variable transmission is still relatively affordable at $17,525.

In terms of technology, the Versa has a standard suite of active safety gear, including automatic emergency braking and lane-departure warning. For the higher trim levels, interested buyers have the option to avail of the expanded Nissan Safety Shield 360. Also included in the new Versa model is a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen.

If budget is not an issue, customers can opt for the range-topping Versa SR trim that comes with added features such as heated seats, adaptive cruise control, and automatic climate control. For this variant, the retail price starts at $19,265.

The mid-range SV trim, meanwhile, is equipped with alloy wheels and nicer seats than the base model for a starting price of $18,665. Both the SV and SR models are powered by a 1.6-liter inline-four engine that delivers up to 122 horsepower and 114 lb-ft of torque.
