After its 2023 refresh that added an upscale exterior and more available comfort features, the 2024 Nissan Versa rolls into its next model year with no notable changes or significant updates. The five-seat economy car remains a terrific value for shoppers in search of a new vehicle with a low starting price; it now starts at $17,225 (all prices include a $1,095 destination charge).
Performance and Trim Levels
The 2024 Versa looks every bit like a scaled-down version of Nissan’s Sentra compact sedan, imparting an upmarket look and appeal. There are three trims available: S, SV and the range-topping SR. Under the hood of every Versa is a 122-horsepower, 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that sends its output to the front wheels. The S variant can be equipped with either a five-speed manual or continuously variable automatic transmission; the SV and SR have the CVT as standard.
The base S trim comes with 15-inch wheels, cloth upholstery, keyless entry, a four-speaker stereo, a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system and three USB ports. Standard safety equipment includes forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, rear automatic braking, lane departure warning and automatic high beam assist.
60/40 split-folding rear seat and 16-inch alloy wheels. The SV notably also comes standard with blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.
The top-of-the-line SR trim adds 17-inch alloy wheels, upgraded cloth seating, heated front seats, automatic climate control, adaptive cruise control, LED headlights and a six-speaker audio system.
Pricing and Release Date
The 2024 Nissan Versa is on sale now. Pricing for each trim is listed below:
- S (manual): $17,225
- S (CVT): $18,895
- SV: $20,515
- SR: $21,235
With rivals like the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 and Hyundai Accent having recently been discontinued (or soon to be), the Versa faces less competition as more people opt for small, economy-minded SUVs. Moving one sedan size higher to a compact sedan like the Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla means paying thousands more.
Anyone interested in a Versa might want to act sooner rather than later, as well, since it’s rumored the 2024 model year could be the last one for Nissan’s pint-size sedan.
