    Nissan is extremely good at combining all the qualities you want in a car and doing it for a price tag that most people can afford, and the 2024 Nissan Versa proves it. You can expect sporty styling inside and out with the Versa, along with a handful of remarkable features that further its sporty theme. A five-speed manual transmission is one such feature that will reconnect you with the road and the thrill of driving.

    The Versa has been designed with an assortment of fuel-saving technologies, leading to an estimated fuel efficiency that has it at the front of the class. Saving money at the pump is just one way the Versa is a cost-effective option that won’t require you to give up style, safety, or creature comforts. A medley of trim options lets you customize your experience, and unlike many other vehicles on the market today, you will save money even on higher-end trim options.

    A just-right cabin offers features that aren’t over the top but provide enough comfort that long drives or dreaded commutes become enjoyable rides. With the Versa’s impressive suite of safety features, your mind can be at rest as well. The Nissan Versa outdoes its competition and proves that good things do still come in affordable and small packages.

  • Performance

    The 2024 Nissan Versa blends performance and efficiency well—both qualities that are highly sought after in sedans. All three trims come standard with a 1.6L, naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine that produces 122 hp and 114 lb-ft of torque.

    For anyone longing for the good old days when the manual reigned supreme, you are in luck because each S trim comes standard with a five-speed manual transmission. The S trim is the entry-level trim option of the Versa, keeping costs down and the thrill level high. If manual isn’t your thing, it's okay because the S trim can be equipped with a CVT for about $1500.00 more. The CVT—which stands for Continuously Variable Transmission—comes standard on the SV and SR trims for smooth shifting.

    Traditional transmissions use a set of fixed gears which require a mechanism—usually a torque converter—to switch between gears, depending on need. The XTRONIC CVT used by Nissan uses a set of pulleys to transfer torque into movement rather than powering a torque converter. The engineering genius of the XTRONIC CVT is that it can move through gears almost seamlessly, resulting in quick and reliable acceleration and fuel efficiency.

    The Versa’s fuel efficiency also comes by way of front-wheel drive. All three trims come standard as front-wheel drive sedans, providing improved weight distribution and a lighter overall weight, impacting the vehicle’s efficiency. The torque saved by the Versa's CVT results in improved traction, which in turn contributes to the vehicle’s fuel efficiency—along with an obvious increase in safety.

    All three trim levels, when equipped with the XTRONIC CVT, get a whopping EPA-estimated 32 MPG in the city and 40 MPG on the highway. When the S trim is equipped with a manual transmission, it gets slightly less fuel efficiency at 27 MPG in the city and 35 MPG on the highway. While those numbers are nothing to scoff at, they do illustrate the impact CVTs have on fuel efficiency.

  • Safety

    The Versa enjoys plenty of safety features, many of which actively work to keep the streets we drive on safer. Features like Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection—a standard on all three Versa trims—provides assistance when you need it most. Highway driving can be unpredictable, especially when vehicles weave in and out of traffic, and distractions come in from every corner. With Nissan’s advanced safety systems, you have extra support when things don’t go as planned.

    Automatic Emergency Braking monitors the space between you and the vehicle in front of you, alerting you if you need to slow down. Keeping a cushion between your vehicle and the one in front of you is one of the most effective ways to avoid a collision should the flow of traffic change. If you are going too fast and getting too close to the vehicle in front of you, the program will warn you to slow down. If it's too late for a warning, the program will actually apply the brakes to minimize or even potentially avoid damage. The Pedestrian Detection aspect of the program works in a similar way, providing assistance with braking to avoid an impact with a pedestrian.

    Lane Departure Warning is another standard feature across all trims, monitoring your driving and ensuring that when you leave your lane, it's because you are doing so intentionally. Even the best drivers can get distracted, but with Nissan’s Lane Departure Warning watching your back, you can be reminded to keep your eyes and attention on the road before you drift into trouble.

    Not all impacts take place on the freeway, which is where another safety feature comes in—Rear Automatic Braking. Like some of the other safety features, this program comes standard on all three trims and is helpful for watching your back—literally. By detecting an object behind your vehicle before you hit it, the program can provide braking assistance to lessen the severity of an impact.

    Some safety features that are not available on all trim levels further protect you whether you are on a busy highway or an active city road. Features such as Intelligent Driver Alertness come standard on the top two trim levels and monitor the driver for distracted or tired driving. Staying alert is one of the most important aspects of driver safety, and with Nissan’s innovative Intelligent Driver Alertness, you have an extra reminder to help you stay focused wherever you go.

  • Comfort

    The Versa is known for its value, offering a modest price tag but still providing plenty of desirable features. This is how the Versa fits so many lifestyles and types of drivers. From commuters to car-poolers, the Versa fits the bill. Of course, if you are driving a vehicle every day, you will want it to be comfortable and have conveniences that make your life easier. The Versa is available in three trims, starting with the entry-level S trim, which keeps most options to the basics, but as you move up to more luxurious Versas, you will gain access to more options that are sure to make you happy.

    The SR is the top trim and barely breaks the $20,000 mark, and here you will find such features as a Remote Engine Start System with Intelligent Climate Control.[a] Cold winter mornings and hot summer days don’t stand a chance against the remote start, which allows you to preheat or pre-cool your vehicle without even leaving the house. If you still find yourself faced with unbearable cold, you can rest easy knowing that the Versa SR also comes standard with heated front seats. Not only does the driver get to ride in comfort, but so does the front passenger.

    The SR trim offers an eight-inch color touch-screen display equipped with NissanConnect. NissanConnect acts as a conduit for Nissan’s infotainment features and allows easy access to the advanced features the SR comes with. The middle Versa trim level—the SV—also comes with NissanConnect, which is attached to a seven-inch display rather than an eight-inch one. The entry-level S trim does not offer NissanConnect, but it does still provide a seven-inch color touch-screen display as the central hub for infotainment purposes.

    Nissan has equipped the Versa with plenty of conveniences for all trim levels to get you through your day—features like the Bluetooth Hands-free Phone System, which acts as a safety system just as much as a convenience system. Other convenience features like Siri Eyes Free and Voice Recognition help keep your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel. These features function through the center display, keeping you well-connected.
