2014 Nissan Versa review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

The Nissan Versa’s styling isn’t particularly memorable, but buyers will appreciate the roomy interior, low starting price and fuel efficiency. The Versa is one of the most affordable cars in the U.S. Competitors include the Hyundai Accent, Toyota Yaris and Ford Fiesta.

The Versa hatchback continues to be sold as a 2012 model through the end of the 2013 calendar year and will be replaced by the new Versa Note, which is covered separately in the Cars.com Research section.
New for 2014
All Versa sedans get suspension and steering tuning changes, and the base S trim level adds chrome accents, silver interior accents, a tachometer and low-rolling-resistance tires. The midlevel SV trim gets a remote trunk release and a 60/40-split folding backseat while the top-of-the-line SL version adds 16-inch alloy wheels, a 4.3-inch stereo screen and satellite radio.

Over 100,000 miles and still going!

This is a very basic car with basic power but it has never failed me. I've had issues with the door lock and trunk lock- I don't even lock my door because I'm afraid the key won't open it! At some point l will have to deal with the trunk lock. The car is so basic I'm not worried about it being stolen. The interior drivers side window handle needs to be replaced but that is the only other issue. This is a good no-frills car!

Super reliable

Never ever broke down, car runs like a dream. Very reliable. Cheap to maintain. Super cheap tires if you need the available anywhere. Great comfort

First Car I Owned, A Great One!

This was my first car and it was perfect for driving home from my college. Amazing gas mileage for longer trips, too. Accident free and no mechanical issues.
