Editor's Overview

With a base price below $13,000, the 2018 Nissan Versa is an affordable, comfortable and economical subcompact sedan with a roomy interior, large trunk and popular features. It’s also the least expensive new car available in the United States, undercutting competitors Hyundai Accent, Kia Rio, Toyota Yaris iA, Chevy Sonic, Ford Fiesta and Mitsubishi Mirage. A 5-speed manual transmission is standard, but an automatic is available.

A great reliable car to buy/lease.

Nissan versa is a great car great on speed and gas also the seats are very comfortable nice enjoyable car for a small family very easy to adjust mirrors and maintain car maintenance. Car breaks very good I recommend buyers to buy car very safe reliable car didn't have any issues with this vehicle even the dealership worked great with me with maintaining maintenance for my vehicle.

I love my car it is comfortable lots of room a lot of space I love the number of cup holders it has spacious goes fast everything is clean everything works I simply love it I am planning on traveling and the gas per mile is excellent only thing I do not like is the manual windows and other than that everything is good it is white they come in different colors I plan to fog lights.

Great 2018 Nissan versa everything great about it.

It is an amazing car!! It has cold a/c, drives smoothly, it's great on gas $20 fills it right up! It is a small 4 door car and I am 5'0" ft. So its perfect to be honest my husband and I only have one child and it is just us majority of the time. The exterior is white and the interior is black, it has a touchscreen Bluetooth radio, you can also make calls from within the car.
