Although it's more stylish with the 2020 redesign, the Nissan Versa continues to be a basic, inexpensive subcompact.
Available as a sedan only, we found it easy to drive and user-friendly.
Unlike most of its competitors, it comes with standard key advanced safety features, like automatic emergency braking.
But the Versa is no joy to drive, with its stiff ride, dull handling, and droning engine.
Fuel economy is good at 32 mpg overall, but some midsized sedans--let alone compact ones--can match or better that.
The driver's seat is short on support, and unlike previous Versas, the rear seat is tight.
A more substantial used car can be had at the same price, but those who consider the Versa should get the SV for its blind spot warning and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.
