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.
