Nissan’s entry in the U.S. subcompact market just got a sticker price. The Versa hatchback comes in two trims with three different transmissions. The base Versa 1.8 S with a six-speed manual transmission costs $12,450, and the four-speed automatic costs $13,250. The higher-level trim, the SL, will cost $14,450 for the six-speed manual and $15,450 for the CVT (continuously variable transmission) version. Both trims come with a 122-hp, 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine.

Front seat side-impact and side curtain airbags come standard, and the CVT-equipped SL gets 30/36 mpg in city/highway driving.

The Versa is another solid model entering the now-hot subcompact market and actually goes on sale today.
