I love my versa. I get great gas mileage.
"I have a plain jane model with standard stick transmission. I have A/C, AM/FM CD player, power side mirrors, manual crank windows and manual door locks. The only thing I really wish I had, is power locks with a key fob. So I could locate my car in parking lots quicker and it's quicker to get my passengers in for safety reasons."

MY 2016 Nissan Versa SV
"Excellent vehicle for the price point. The interior is a little loud, it has the largest back seat for its class and seats four adults better than comfortably, would work well as the second vehicle of a small family. Gas mileage in city is meh (19mpg)."

Good, well performing little car. Great on had, though
"Good well performing car. Great on gas but it could really use a larger had tank. At about 10 gallons, you can't get very far. I find I fill up about every 5 days, but do go about 350 miles. The on-board system can show you average mpg and at 34-39, city and highway combined, it does well. "

The rear seat doesn't fold down, and the cloth used should certainly have been upgraded
