The 2013 Nissan Versa is the final redesigned release as part of Nissan’s most innovative year ever.

As was the case with the Nissan Altima, Nissan Pathfinder and Nissan Sentra, Nissan hit a home run with this redesign.

Motortrend says the Versa has the lowest base price of any new car in the U.S.

We first saw the Nissan Versa at the Cleveland Auto Show, and were excited to see it in Massillon, Ohio.


The Nissan Versa is Nissan’s Economy Car, but this Versa doesn’t cut the corners. The Nissan Versa has a redesigned front end and side molding that puts it more in line with Nissan’s other car models. One of the problems with previous Versa models was the design. It looked too much like an Economy car, as the quality of design wasn’t in line with the rest of the Nissan brand.

That isn’t the car anyone, as the new Nissan Versa might be one of the most stylish vehicles on the road. The 2013 Nissan Versa is also a cut above on the inside, with a new center console, new steering wheel design, and three choices of redesigned interior fabric.

Staying inside, Nissan says the Versa has the most cargo room and passenger legroom in its class. You won’t have to choose which friends get to come on your next road trip. In total, the 2013 Nissan Versa has 14.9 cubic feet of trunk space. An avaiable split fold-down rear seat gives you even more space. No longer will you have to borrow someone else’s car when you have to make a larger purchase.

40 MPG

If all that wasn’t enough, the 2013 Nissan Versa gets up to 40 Miles Per Gallon on the highway. The available Pure Drive system makes the Versa one of the most green vehicles on the road today. Under the hood, the Versa is powered by a 1.6-liter DOHC 4-cylinder engine and carries the Xtronic CVT that is popular throughout the Nissan line.


The Versa comes in four separate trim levels, and depending on trim, the Versa can come with features including alloy wheels, Bluetooth, Intelligent Key Push Button Ignition, Navigation, rear spoiler, rear view monitor, and USB plugs to play your iPhone music over the steering wheel.


The Car Connection:

“Value for the dollar is pretty much the main motivation for most shoppers considering the 2013 Nissan Versa, and this year Nissan has added value, with more standard features, on its mid-range SV and top-of-the-line SL models. Meanwhile, at a bottom-line price starting below $12,800 for the base Versa S, it’s one of the most affordable models in the U.S. market.”

Kelley Blue Book’s

“Not only is the 2013 Versa the roomiest car in its class, it remains the least-expensive new car you can buy, even with this year’s price increase. Add in fuel economy of up to 40 mpg, and the Versa looks even more sensible.”
