Revitalized Versa is Still The Most Inexpensive New Car
The all new Nissan Versa at Bay Ridge Nissan in Brooklyn, New York is still the most reasonably priced new car you can buy with additional standard features starting at a little over $11,000. For those of you who have been drooling over the Versa, it might just be the time to buy as it was just given a sporty, youthful makeover.
The 2012 Versa even comes with a 1.6SV optional upgrade for those who enjoy a bit more horsepower. The 2012 model actually weighs 250 pounds less than previous models. The all new Versa sedan employs a 1.6-liter four-speed automatic with continuously variable transmissions.
According to Consumer Reports, the "EPA ratings for the CVT version are now 30 mpg city, 38 mpg highway. This falls shy of the magic 40 mpg highway number many competitors are going for, but it's a big jump from the previous Versa, which only managed 25/33 with the four-speed automatic box."1
Several years ago, you could purchase a base Versa for under ten grand, but it didn't even include FM or AM radio, and was a manual transmission. Luckily today, you can purchase a Versa with FM and AM radio, plus automatic, antilock brakes, stability control, air conditioning and destination charges, beginning at a reasonable price of $11,750.
If you are a driver who enjoys more horsepower, the 1.6SV sedan starts at around $15,490, compared to $16,130 for the 2009 1.8S sedan. Even though the starting price is cheaper than the 2009 1.8S sedan, the 1.6SV still includes all previously mentioned standards, plus power windows/locks, ABS, and of course, a little more horsepower.
Like always, you can add a more personalized trim, automatic adjustments in the seating and mirrors, sunroof, and numerous other options all while keeping your 2012 Nissan Versa in an affordable price range.
