Like other vehicles in the subcompact class, the 2018 Nissan Versa delivers excellent fuel economy and offers upscale features yet remains very affordable. The current Nissan Versa also distinguishes itself with available two body styles: the sedan and the Versa Note hatchback. This is an adequate option as an entry-level vehicle, although you who are looking for more levels of excitement or personality are advised to look toward the Versa rivals.
The 2018 Nissan Versa is a subcompact sedan available in S, S Plus and SV trim levels.
The 2018 Nissan Versa is powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 109 horsepower and 107 pound-feet of torque. The base S trim comes only with a five-speed manual transmission, while the S Plus and SV come only with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). All transmissions send power to the front wheels.
In track testing, the 2018 Nissan Versa sedan with the CVT accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 10.4 seconds, which is slower than the average subcompact or compact sedan. EPA estimated fuel economy stands at an excellent 35 mpg combined (31 city/39 highway) for the CVT. With the standard five-speed manual transmission, those numbers drop to 30 mpg combined (27 city/36 highway).
The 2018 Nissan Versa price list: S $12,875, S Plus $15,015 and SV $16,605.
