2015 Nissan Versa review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

Nissan has updated its Versa subcompact sedan, addressing some of the issues that the press and public have had with the roomy entry-level car while holding the line on its low price.
ExteriorThis is just a mild refresh of the Versa, with changes fairly limited. A new front grille, headlights, fog-light surrounds and wheels comprise the external changes, but the updates don’t look especially new, just different. Larger headlights give the Versa a wide-eyed appearance meant to align the car with the rest of Nissan’s lineup.
InteriorInterior updates include a new center stack that looks better than the Versa’s outgoing plastic version, a nicer steering wheel and standard Bluetooth connectivity. As with most new small cars today, you can option a 2015 Versa with all manner of electronic goodies, including a 5.8-inch touch-screen with app capability, voice commands and navigation. The Versa’s surprisingly roomy interior remains a strong point, with one of the biggest passenger cabins in its class and a copious 14.9 cubic feet of trunk space.
Under The HoodThe powertrain is unchanged. It remains a 109-horsepower, 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that’s mated to either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission in the base S trim or a standard continuously variable automatic transmission in the S Plus, SL and SV trims. Fuel economy is also unchanged for the Versa.

Love it

This by far was the smoothest transaction of my life. So professional and attentive to detail. I will never buy a vehicle from anywhere else.

The ignition lock is not working. Cant start car.

Ignition lock doesn’t work. Cant start car. Only has 54,000 miles. Brakes squeak when applied. Dealership says that’s normal. Has since purchased new. 64 years old. Had several cars never had these problems Have 164,000 miles on my 2006 Chevy. More reliable than the Nissan. Going back to chevy

Cute Ride but Poor Transmission/Cooling System

Got this car with 3k miles on it. At 50 thousand miles engine started shaking and dash felt overly hot. Engine light came on. Sometimes felt like it was going to stall out. Dealer claimed it was O2 sensor and another one also related to air/fuel ration. They changed one then took car to my own mechanic who claimed O2 sensor fine but they changed it to make me feel better. Car worse then before. Seems Nissan cannot fix or diagnose their own cars properly. Probably lied to. After doing research I read these cars have faulty cooling systems which causes the CVT transmission to overheat and explains the shaking. This is most likely what I think happened with my car. I am back to Toyota.
