2019 Nissan Versa review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2019 Nissan Versa?

The 2019 Nissan Versa is a five-seat sedan that's powered by a 109-horsepower, 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. It comes standard with a five-speed manual transmission; a continuously variable automatic transmission is also available. Competitors include the Chevrolet Sonic, Hyundai Accent and Kia Rio.

What's New on the 2019 Nissan Versa?

The SV Special Edition Package now includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity.

What Features in the 2019 Nissan Versa Are Most Important?

Standard features include power-adjustable side mirrors, Bluetooth streaming audio, USB connectivity and a 7-inch touchscreen multimedia system. Power windows and locks, however, are optional, as is a 60/40-split, folding backseat.

Should I Buy the 2019 Nissan Versa?

Value-minded small-car shoppers should take to the Versa's budget-friendly pricing, and the car's cabin and trunk are big for its class. The driving experience, however, is underwhelming; acceleration with the CVT is sluggish, and highway manners and handling aren't great.

Newest car I have ever owned

I love this car so far. It has lots of room and a back up camera. Love the style and the way it's drives. No complaint s so far.

Horrible car and cheaply made

I bought this car used with just over 40000 miles on it from a reputable dealership. On the second day the problems started. The car would jerk forward harshly when braking and occasionally when accelerating around 20 mph. Dealership applied a firmware update to the transmission and the issue was much better for about a month and a half. Car was fine one morning, drove it in the afternoon and I could immediately tell the same problems were back. Dealership replaced the transmission fluid as well as put in a new transmission valve body and said if it happens again their next step would be a whole new transmission. Thank god the car was under powertrain warranty and the dealership didn't try to screw me over on anything. I ended up getting rid of the car for a small financial loss for my own peace of mind. A car on the way to possibly needing a new transmission under 45k miles is unacceptable. Aside from the transmission issues, the interior has a lot of rattling cheap plastic, noise when idling. The only good things I can say about it are the gas mileage and the backup camera was nice. It's my own fault for not doing research and seeing how bad the Nissan CVTs are, so I hope this review can help you not make the same mistake I did by getting this car.

I previously owned one that was wrecked mm

I really love it, it's like being home . I wouldn't think of buying any of kind of vehicle. I have driven a Nissan for years and will continue to do so.
