Excellent Little Car
March 14, 2018
We purchased this vehicle to replace the old 1999 Corolla I’d been driving around for the last decade. Got a heck of a deal on the Versa note through our local dealership, and so far we are very pleased! We test drove this vehicle on a snowy Denver afternoon, and it handled exceptionally well for it’s size. It’s hatchback styling is very convenient, as are the folding down back seats. For as small it is, the cargo space is really quite amazing! Hubby, who has very long legs, can fit in the backseat quite comfortably, which is unheard of even in most larger vehicles! We went with the SV trim, as the S felt a bit basic with the manual locks and windows. The SV adds power locks/windows, 5 inch radio screen, hands free call and text, and a more comfortable seating material. For just $1,000.00 more, the upgrade has been well worth it for us. Gas mileage projections have been mostly accurate for us so far, although depending on who is driving we will sometimes average as low as 28 mpg in the city. Highway mpg is usually between 39-41, which we love. Acceleration does tend to be rather lackluster in this car, but we knew that we weren’t buying a sports car. Also, we’ve noticed that on windy days it can be a bit nerve racking to drive on the interstate....being such a small car, it does get blown around a bit. Overall, it’s been the perfect choice for the needs of our family. Would highly recommend this car to commuters and small families that are looking for an economic, practical, and stylish choice.
