The 2015 Nissan Versa has the advantages of sizable interior and a back seat large enough to accommodate adults but drawbacks in the lackluster, noisy engine performance. It also has a roomy trunk and gets high gas mileage to go along with a comfortable ride and a low base price.
The 2015 edition of the Versa gets rave reviews from Edmunds Expert Review for the size of the interior, because many cars aimed at the budget market have tight space inside and fail to offer a comfortable ride. However, reviews indicate that the Versa delivers. Its major selling point is the backseat, spacious enough to provide comfort to taller adults even on lengthy rides.
Like many budget vehicles, the Versa provides basic transportation for the driver and little else. Bluetooth is one of the standard features as of 2015, but other amenities that are becoming standard elsewhere, such as keyless entry, satellite radio and full power accessories, are not standard on the Versa, adding to its price for those who want them. Also, such competitors as the Ford Fiesta and the Chevrolet Sonic feel more dynamic for the driver, and the Hyundai Accent and Kia Rio accelerate more quickly. The competitors' styling also offers more than the Versa, although they don't offer as much space.
