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 best-in-class standard safety features. 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. The 2020 Versa goes on sale summer 2019.
