Nissan Versa SR Makes The Most of Small and Sporty!

Maintaining a fond appreciation for the driving excitement and serious value equation of small cars is a losing battle.

Sales of small cars have been on an extinction level path darkened by the long shadows of ever expanding SUV legions. Despite the lack of sales and consumer interest … global market players continue to produce smart and satisfying little vehicles like the new Nissan Versa SR … a thoroughly practical, roomy and comprehensively tech enabled ride priced at $15,000 to $20,000. That’s $30K less than the average new car transaction price this year.

The overall curb appeal of the Nissan Versa SR is a pleasantly windswept character line articulated small sedan on 17-inch alloy wheels with some familiar brand styling cues like the V-motion front grille and the floating rear roofline. The Versa SR test vehicle swathed in Grey Sky Pearl paint was luminous in shades of white, grey and pale blue.

The Nissan Versa standard 1.6 liter 4 cylinder pumps 122 horsepower … significantly more fun with the limited optional 5-speed manual … but more fuel efficient in the CVT automatic with combined 35 mpg stats.
