2015 Nissan Versa Overview

  • Refreshed for 2015 with updated interior and exterior styling
  • Cheapest car in America, starting at just under $12,000
  • Up to 40 mpg on the highway
Refreshed with updated interior and exterior styling, as well as a few more standard features, the 2015 Nissan Versa continues to provide one of the best values on the road today.

The Versa, since its inception, has been a constant presence on many affordable car lists and the 2015 version is no exception. Despite the new styling and added features, its base price remains unmoved at $11,990 which makes it the cheapest new car sold in America today.

Exterior updates for the new model year make the Versa look more like its Nissan brethren, the larger Sentra and Altima sedans. Up front, the headlights have grown and are now the most prominent design feature. New chrome highlights make the front grille pop, and there are two new paint colors as well (blue and gray). The Versa’s skin has changed, but its proportions haven’t; the Versa still has a long wheelbase for its class, but short front and rear overhangs, which gives it very good interior room for a sub-compact. It also might not look it, but the Versa is pretty aerodynamic with just a 0.29 coefficient of drag, which helps fuel economy.

Under the hood is the same 109-hp, 1.6-liter four-cylinder making 107 pounds-feet of torque. There are three transmission options, S models feature a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic, while the S Plus, SV, and SL get an efficient Xtronic CVT transmission. Don’t expect to get much out of the Versa when it comes to acceleration, but it is efficient. Models equipped with the Xtronic transmission return 31/40 mpg city/highway, beating out both the manual and automatic by five combined mpg.

Inside, Bluetooth connectivity is now standard across all models. One of our favorite features of the Versa is its roomy backseat, with 37 inches of rear legroom, which rivals many compacts and midsize sedans. The Versa’s cargo room is also worth mentioning at 14.9 cubic feet, also on par with larger vehicles. Air conditioning and a CD stereo are also standard. The rest is optional, including power windows and locks, cruise control, upgraded seat fabric, and keyless entry. There is also plenty of available technology, including a navigations system, satellite radio, USB/iPod connectivity, and push-button start.

Standard safety features include six airbags, antilock brakes, electronic stability and traction control, and a LATCH system for child safety seats.
