Since its last redesign in the year 2012, the latest version sees few changes from then. The line-up of the Versa continues to appeal to consumers that lie small vehicles that emulate larger ones. The Versa takes after its siblings that happen to be larger, the Altima and the Sentra, in its design and styling.
2015 Nissan Versa Sedan Engine
The latest generation of the Nissan Versa Sedan is powered by a 1.6 liter four cylinder engine that produces enough power for a consumer’s daily commute while it is slow to accelerate and tends to labor heavily on the highway and hills. The engine is mated with a five speed manual transmission, standard, along with the option of a four speed automatic transmission. The continuously variable transmission (CVT) delivers the greatest fuel economy, delivering 31/40 mpg city/highway, which is excellent for a vehicle within its class and well within the regulations currently enforced within the United States.
2015 Nissan Versa Sedan Trim Levels
The front wheel drive vehicle is available in the following trim levels: SL, S Plus, SV and S. With the SL trim level, consumers will receive Intelligent Key, sun visor extensions, driver’s seat arm rest, and an immobilizer system. That package can be stepped up with the addition of: heated seats, fog lamps, a navigation system via NissanConnect, a rearview monitor and Around View Monitor (for the purpose of visual parking assist).
According to critics within the industry are in agreement that the steering is very predictable with handling that is quite drab. The aesthetic of the vehicle rivals that of the Kia Rio and the Ford Fiesta and is said to be far from a fun drive.
2015 Nissan Versa Sedan Design
The cabin is constructed with materials that are subpar and boasts zero frills. The front hosts a plentiful amount of leg and shoulder room, but the seating comfort decreases as the length or the ride increases. The rear seating can comfortable accommodate two passengers that happen to be tall and the vehicle does contain a great deal of cargo space (as opposed to the cargo area of its competitors). The 2015 Nissan Versa does come standard with: an auxiliary input, Bluetooth as well as steering mounted audio controls. Consumers are given the following optional features as well: a USB port, power door locks, smartphone app integration, push button start, touch screen navigation system, satellite radio, cruise control, and a rearview camera. Also available as an option is Nissan’s Around View Monitor that uses multiple cameras in order to give a view that is 360 degrees around the vehicle for parking assistance.
2015 Nissan Versa Sedan Release Date and Price
The bottom line pricing for the 2015 Nissan Versa Sedan is under $13,000. The pricing is attractive, especially since the base model for the vehicle line is truly basic. The bare minimum will be presented to the consumer for this pricing, zero frills. To gain the feel that is found in competitors, consumers will have to increase their trim level and partake of the vast majority of optional features provided by Nissan. Currently on the market, the 2015 Nissan Versa Sedan has been greeted with a bevy of mixed reviews.
