The Nissan Versa was launched as a compact car in 2007. The Versa models have been built on the Nissan B body, which has a stretched wheelbase. The Versa is available in hatchback and sedan body styles. The Versa is Nissan's current entry model for North America. It replaces the Sentra in that function, which has become more expensive after its 2007 design. The Versa made its debut in North America at the 2006 North American International Auto Show. The first to be launched in 2007 was the hatchback model and the sedan debuted later that year. A 1.8 Liter I4 MR series engine with 122 horsepower powers the Versa. It comes equipped with a choice of three different transmissions; a four speed automatic, a continuously variable transmission, or a six speed manual transmission. It is the only car in the North American market to be equipped with a six speed manual transmission.
The Nissan Versa is available in two models; the Versa 1.8 S and The Versa 1.8 SL. The 1.8 S comes equipped with air conditioning, back wiper, rear seat that is split and can be folded (this feature is available in the hatchback only) and a CD player. Options on the 1.8 S are power windows, power mirrors and keyless entry. The 1.8 SL has all the equipment as the S model but adds cruise control; its interior is made of better cloth, the driver's seat can be multi-adjusted and a stereo system with the ability to store six CDs and a jack to connect to a MP3 player. Options for the Versa 1.8 SL are Bluetooth connectivity, keyless entry, a leather steering wheel with stereo control buttons located on it, sunroof, and satellite radio.
2012 Nissan Versa
The 2012 Nissan Versa is by far one of – if not the – most affordable mid-size sedans on the market today. At just $10,990 you can feel secure buying this car for the new driver in your family, knowing that if they wreck it, not only will they be safe, but it won’t cost you your entire savings. .
As far as the interior of the car goes, the design is clean, nothing fancy and has plenty of driver and front passenger head room. The one complaint from consumers and test drivers tends to be that for those of us who are over 5’10” tall, the knee tends to hit the driver’s side dash. Also, there is not middle storage console, instead there are 2 cup-holders. The seats are made of a comfortable suede fabric and Nissan – as always – has included a touchscreen turn-by-turn GPS navigation system. The steering wheel can be adjusted and has volume, channel and cruise control buttons on it, ensuring that the driver’s attention stays focused on the task at hand. .
The exterior of the 2012 Nissan Versa is nothing special. more
