Editor's Overview

The 2013 Nissan Versa sedan holds the distinction of being the least-expensive new car you can buy. Not surprisingly, this is a no-frills vehicle, but what it lacks in features it makes up for in its high fuel economy, overall low cost to own, and surprisingly roomy accommodations.

Love the gas mileage! A great little car.

We love our versa. The gas mileage is great, and the car really feels bigger on the island than expected. We've had some issues with the transmission and it was actually replaced in 2015 though that replacement was fully covered under warranty. A year later we came across other issues that our mechanic attributed to the transmission, though we later discovered that it was actually due to some water that got trapped in the tail lights -- the issue showed up as a transmission related when scanned but apparently that is common for this model. Otherwise the car has been very reliable and we love it!

Very spacious, good gas mileage.

Excellent value - economical affordable reliable and convenient drive — this is an unbeatable package, economical affordable reliable and convenient drive. Can't go wrong with it for a first car, comfort, convenience and affordability all rolled into one, incredible value for money. Great interior space and large boot. Perfect for a small family. Primary use: commuting to work. Pros: brilliant gas saver, 40 mpg, very low maintenance, automatic cvt, power everything, very convenient steering mounted Bluetooth and Audio controls. Cons: no sunroof.

- Wanda H

A 4 cylinder and doesn't have any power especially if you use the air conditioner.

It doesn't have enough engine power. It's only a 4 cylinder. The stereo systems Its very good and has no good base or surround sound to it. The lowest speed on the windshield wipers is to fast and to you have to manually turn them in and off if Its not raining very hard. I would like to see it have better power and a better stereo system. I also think it would look better if the body style was wider and not so boxy looking and if there was more space inside.
