At $11,990, the 2013 Nissan Versa Sedan has the lowest starting Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price in the United States. This is the second consecutive year that the Versa sedan was determined to be the most affordable. The 2013 Nissan Versa Sedan S doesn’t only offer outstanding value.
It also features a variety of popular features like standard 1.6-liter DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine with dual injector system and twin Continuously Variable Timing Control (CVTC), 5-speed manual transmission, air conditioning, 6-way adjustable driver's seat, and AM/FM/CD/Aux-in audio system. All 2013 Versa Sedan models that have the Xtronic CVT transmission currently return 40 miles per gallon Highway, better than the previous model’s 38 mpg Highway.
To get the additional two miles per gallon, the model has been given new low-rolling resistance tires, new air intake guide, new rear spoiler and rear wheel and underbody air deflectors.
The 2013 range comes with a new Versa Sedan 1.6 S AT model with 4-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, a new Versa Sedan S Plus model gets Xtronic CVT®, cruise control, silver steering wheel accents and two more rear speakers.
The second-generation Nissan Versa Sedan, which was launched in 2011, was developed to redefine entry-level car value. It has a sophisticated exterior design, a well-equipped interior and excellent room for five adults such as a bigger rear legroom than numerous mid-size sedans.
The major improvements for the 2013 model year include the addition of a new Versa Sedan 1.6 S AT model with 4-speed automatic transmission and an improvement in fuel economy to 40 miles per gallon Highway compared to the previous model’s 38 mpg for all CVT-equipped models -- S Plus CVT, SV, SL.
Nissan’s new Versa Sedan features 90 cubic feet of interior volume and 14.8 cubic feet of trunk volume. The total volume of 104.8 cubic feet is meant not only to look great on the specifications sheet, but the passenger and the cargo spaces have also been configured to be truly useful and practical. The Nissan Versa Sedan also has more rear legroom compared to other mid-size sedans.
Also, the trunk design is focused on usable space and takes into consideration every aspect, from the hinge sizes to the sidewall shapes. Moreover, a 60/40-split fold-down seat at the rear is available on Versa SL models for greater versatility.
The Versa’s interior also has other available features like the trip computer, speed-sensing auto door locks, power windows plus driver's one-touch down, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, and remote trunk release lever. There are also two interior colors available: Sandstone and Charcoal.
What’s more, the Versa’s new exterior design is a departure from the most current compact sedans as it offers a refreshing design character that’s highly aerodynamic and sophisticated.
According to Nissan’s Al Castignetti, the new Versa stands out as its segment’s only expensive-looking car with its abundance of “eye power.” The car’s sculpted and dynamic proportions are modern, projecting a high sense of design value, as is expected in a car with a starting Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $10,990.
In order to achieve the upscale look of the new Versa Sedan, designers for the company gave the car’s exterior shape a powerful sense of volume, with a smooth silhouette and a wide shoulder width. The car’s front features the new Nissan signature sedan grille design as well as jewel-like headlights.
