2015 Nissan Versa Reviews

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.

Very smooth vehicle.

It is a very smooth and well operating vehicle. Has some power under the hood and very impressive interior design. Highly recommend for people who want a reliable gas saving vehicle.

Warranties Explained

Bumper-to-Bumper

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

Powertrain

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
