Nissan’s cheapest offering – the redesigned 2020 Versa sedan – has entered the US car market and can be bought nationwide.
The new Nissan Versa starts at $15,625. Though it is cheaper than the rivals, such as the 2020 Hyundai Accent ($16,125) or the 2020 Toyota Yaris ($16,645), the Nissan sedan is $2,270 pricier than the 2019 car.
The new Versa has a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine producing over 120 hp.
A base S model comes with a 5-speed manual gearbox. A CVT (continuously variable automatic transmission) is standard for more expensive SV ($18,535) and SR ($19,135) versions. It will cost additional $1,670 on the base car.
The SV configuration includes a $395 premium paint color, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, larger 16-inch wheels, more upscale interior fabric, blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert (not offered for the entry level vehicle).
The range-topping SR model can boast 17-inch wheels, automatic climate control, passive entry/ passive start (PEPS). An optional Convenience package ($300) adds heated front seats and adaptive cruise control.
