Editor's Overview

With a starting price of $12,800, the 2015 Nissan Versa retains its status as the least-expensive new car you can buy. Beyond an affordable price tag, the Versa Sedan and Versa Note hatchback boast good fuel economy and a roomy interior, but not the driving dynamics of rivals like the Honda Fit, Ford Fiesta or Chevrolet Sonic.

Small in size but big in character.

I love the fact that it is a small car but when you get inside it feels big. I also love that the seats lay down in the back which gives you plenty of room to pack decent sized furniture pieces and other big items. I like the fact that you can connect your phone through Bluetooth and you can play your favorite playlist from your phone in your car. I absolutely love that it does not take that much money to fill your gas tank up. This car is small but it packs a lot of space because it can easily seat 5 people comfortably. The only thing that I would love for this car to have is the camera on the back so that you can see behind you when you are backing the car out.

Nissan versa vs. note is the best first car I could've chosen!

One thing that surprised me about my Nissan versa vs. note, is how spacious it is inside. Even my 6 foot tall friend can comfortably fit inside, front or back, with no problem. This car has been very reliable from day one, handling both city driving, and cross-country road trips with ease. I had to get my front wheel bearings replaced after about a year and a half, which was expensive, but done quickly and there were no problems finding the parts for the shop. I get very good average mileage as well, around 32 mpg, city and highway usage. I love the simple layout of features in the cabin and how versatile this car is. I would definitely recommend it.

Decent vehicle, wise purchase though.

My Nissan runs well, has plenty of power and is easy on fuel. It also has decent cargo space in back as needed for trips around town, and can seat five people comfortably. The finish on the outside has been easy to maintain I have had no mechanical problems after 60 thousand plus miles. I would purchase another one after mine has past it is useful life. The only real complaint is when the dashboard clock has to be reset when daylight savings time changes occur. Small detail, but aggravating to do twice a year- this needs fixing. Using one of the radio knobs to adjust your dash clock doesn't work well. Needs rethinking and a change.
