What Is the 2022 Nissan Versa?

The front-wheel-drive, five-seat Versa is Nissan’s entry-level subcompact sedan.

Three trim levels are available — S, SV and SR — and the Versa competes with the Hyundai Accent, Kia Rio and Chevrolet Spark

Should I Buy the 2022 Nissan Versa?

If you’re in the market for a subcompact sedan, the Nissan Versa is a fuel-efficient and competitively priced choice.

The four-cylinder engine is weak, however, and the ride can get choppy on rough roads.
