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.

Scary!

Biggest factor for me is that mine was hit by a little Chevy Spark. The damage that was done to the Nissan was horrifying - definitely not a safe vehicle - folded like an accordion.

Was great for the first 2 weeks

I bought the car brand new, had nothing but problems. After 2 weeks it would constantly idle at 500 rpms and frequently stall at stop lights. I brought it to multiple dealers and they couldn't resolve the issue. Over the 3 years of owning it, the stereo had to be replaced 3 times because the screen would stop working. I also had an issue where the rear of the car would make loud noises, within 6 months of owning it the rear wheel bearings had to be replaced. That fixed it briefly then the noise came back. I loved it when I first got it but the love turned to hate as the problems added up.

5.0

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.
