  • Newly available SV Special Edition Package
The 2017 Nissan Versa is a subcompact sedan that seats 5 passengers. It competes with the Toyota Yaris, Kia Rio, and Mazda 3. The Versa Note is the hatchback version, which will be covered in a separate overview. This year, the Versa receives a newly available SV Special Edition Package, which includes 15-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a 5-inch multimedia display, a satellite radio, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, a backup camera.

Four trims are available: the S, S Plus, SV, and SL.

The Versa has more conventional styling in comparison to the rest of the Nissan lineup. The enlarged headlights stretch back to the middle of the hood. The rear-end sticks out further than the front-end, in order to provide more room for the rear passengers. Standard features include power side mirrors. Available features include turn signal indicators at the side mirrors and a rear spoiler.

Under the hood, the Versa is powered by a standard 109-hp, 1.6-liter 4-cylinder mated to a 5-speed manual transmission or a 4-speed automatic. The S Plus and higher trim levels have a more efficient Xtronic continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Fuel economy for the CVT models is an EPA-estimated 31/40 mpg city/highway. The regular manual and automatic models have a lower rating of 27/36 mpg.

Surprisingly, the Versa provides 37 inches of rear legroom, which is relatively spacious for a subcompact. The center stack features a standard audio system with CD/MP3 playback and Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio. It can be upgraded with an integrated navigation system, a satellite radio, and a USB port. Air conditioning comes standard. Other available features include a 60/40 split-folding rear seat, power windows/locks, cruise control, upgraded seat fabric, and remote keyless entry.

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