2011 Nissan Versa Price, Review & Picture – New Car Reviews, The 2011 Versa gets a light helping of new kit, notably a standard six-disc CD audio system for the 1.8 S sedan and anti-lock brakes on all models sans the entry-level 1.6 Base. That said the 2010 model year saw the Versa receive myriad refinements, including a new grille, fresh wheels, and availability of stability and traction control and navigation.
The Versa is much like the Cube and Juke from Nissan. It is based on the B platform. The Nissan Versa is not as costly as the Nissan Sentra, but it has less in terms of quality performance. The Versa 1.6 base sedan is priced at $10,740.00 and it has the lowest cost of all Nissan offerings. The vehicle is offered with either the 1.8-Liter Inline-four with 122 hp or the 1.6 Liter inline-four offering 107 hp. Four trannys are offered too: the 4 speed auto, the 6 speed manual, the CVT, and the 5-speed manual. The Nissan Versa sports 14 inch wheels, a front strut rear torsion beam suspension, and rear drum brakes.
The low price is clearly appealing, and the Nissan Versa certainly offers many options and a lot of versatility. Features offered include the addition of a navigation system, intelligent key features, Bluetooth connectivity, a satellite radio, and more. It has 50.4 cubic feet of cargo space in hatch variants, and there is plenty of legroom in the rear seating area, more than the Nisan Maxima offers.
Versa comes in four-door sedan and hatchback bodystyles, both adorned with inconspicuous sheetmetal. To dress up the rather bland appearance, the Versa offers 16-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, side sill extensions, and fog lamps.
Unlike most small cars, the Versa offers a roomy cabin for five, replete with 38.0-inches of rear legroom and 13.8 (sedan) to 17.8 (hatch) cubic feet of cargo space. The hatchback’s 60/40-split folding backseat enlarges cargo to 50.4 cubic-feet.
Versa offers a pair of engines along with a foursome of transmissions. The 1.6-liter 107-horsepower mill found in 1.6 Base and 1.6 models come teamed to either a four-speed automatic or five- or six-speed manual. The 1.8-liter, 122-horsepower unit in 1.8 S and 1.8 SL models is teamed with a six-speed manual, four-speed auto, or CVT. Versa’s suspension features front struts and a rear torsion beam.
The Versa comes with a barrage of safety equipment, including front, front-side, and side curtain airbags as well as front-seat active head restraints, a tire pressure monitoring system, and, on the 1.8 SL model, anti-lock brakes and stability control.
