With highlights such as a high fuel economy, adult-friendly backseat, spacious interior, a low base price, a large trunk, and a comfortable ride quality the new 2017 Nissan Versa is certainly a standout in its segment. However, you will find its alternatives better choices when it comes to driver engagement and personality. Its release date should be expected sometime in the first half of 2017.
One of the most defining attribute of Versa models are their rock-bottom starting price. And the same is true for the new 2017 Nissan Versa. It is a subcompact sedan vehicle that offers plenty of value and an inoffensive styling in addition to the mentioned strengths. Are you looking for ample space? The new model is one such vehicle that you’ll probably want if you have a huge chunk of people in need of hauling around. Further aback, the trunk is also voluptuous and none of your passengers need worry about their luggage.
Here is the thing, though: its price advantage remains competitive as long as you haven’t moved up the food chain. The base model is quite most in terms of the technology features it offers, but for those looking for more fun would be better off opting for the better equipped models up the trim model. The premium trims offer lots of bells and whistles but the price advantage is lost, and you’ll probably end up paying more just as you’d have if you’d have opted for its pricey rivals.
Therefore, the Versa makes sense if what you’re looking for is a basic vehicle that offers lots of utility. Notable cons to owning a Versa include a noisy engine, a bland performance and driving dynamics, and the interior refinement lacks a premium feel. That’s said, you should probably consider what its competition offers. They include the Hyundai Accent, Scion iA, Ford Fiesta, and the zestier Kia Rio.
