2020 Nissan Versa
Ratings & Reliability
The Nissan Versa has historically been one of the most affordable new cars on the market. Redesigned for 2020, the subcompact sedan gets several important standard safety features, including automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection. Lower, longer, and wider than its predecessor, the new Versa is visually distinguished by Altima-like styling cues. Its 1.6-liter four cylinder engine is now up to 122 hp, and transmission choices carry over from 2019. Push-button start is standard, while automatic climate control, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay are optional. We hope that Nissan remedies some of the issues with the outgoing Versa--including a cheap-feeling interior, noisy cabin, lousy handling, and a Poor rating in the IIHS' small-overlap crash test.
