The Nissan Versa is the most affordable model in the automaker’s lineup, making it an excellent choice for those on a budget who still want a high-quality Nissan vehicle. The Versa not only is affordable but also will save you money, thanks to 31 mpg** in the city and 39** on the highway, figures that leave the competition behind. It is also worth mentioning that those who love the Nissan Versa but want the flexibility of a hatchback can drive the Versa Note. Buying a Nissan has proved to be a good investment for many drivers. Let us show you the difference at Lee Nissan located in Fort Walton Beach, FL!
Overall, the 2017 Nissan Versa is nearly identical to the 2016 model. The main difference is that the SV trim level now offers a Special Edition Package, which is completely new. This package is very affordable, only adding $500 to your vehicle’s cost. For that low of a price, it manages to combine many features of the SV Tech and SV Appearance Packages found on the 2016 Versa, including Bluetooth*, satellite radio, a 5-inch color display, hands-free texting, leather on the steering wheel, a rearview camera, fog lights, variable intermittent wipers, chrome accents on the front fascia, and 15-inch alloy wheels. In addition to this new package, the front center console now holds the auxiliary audio and USB ports, and it offers an extra outlet, new cup holders, and a Piano Black lid.
The related 2017 Nissan Versa Note hatchback sees more changes than its sedan counterpart for the current model year. It has a new front fascia that includes a V-Motion grille that flows into the swept-back headlights. The Versa Note also now offers Deep Blue Pearl or Monarch Orange exterior colors. If you remember the sporty rear fascia that was only offered on the SR trim for the 2016 Versa Note, you will notice that it is now on the S Plus, SV, and SL, as well. There are also new designs for the wheel cover on the S Plus and SV, revisions to the 16-inch aluminum alloy wheels on the SL, and the same general changes as the Versa Sedan.
The Nissan Versa is a relatively new addition to the automaker’s lineup, as it only debuted as a 2007 model. It sat on the same platform as the Leaf, Cube, and Juke and was first offered in two trims as either a sedan or hatchback. It ran on a 122-horsepower 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine for more power than the competition. It came standard with six airbags and had styling elements reminiscent of the larger Altima along with trapezoidal taillights and triangular headlights. The interior featured air conditioning, intermittent wipers, a CD player, and a tilt steering wheel as standard with available power accessories, cruise control, a rear armrest, satellite radio, a moonroof, and Rockford-Fosgate audio. A more affordable trim was added for the 2009 model year with a less powerful engine, and antilock brakes became standard on 1.8 trims for 2010.
