2008 Nissan Versa 1.8 S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6M)
Test drove the CVT, my 6 speed is much more responsive and quiet. Fuel economy is great at 32 city-35 hwy. Drove a lot in Denver recently- consistent 32 mpg. Very happy with the options chosen with the S (cruise, power package), and equally happy with the price. Test drove Corolla and Civic. The Versa and the options I wanted would have cost me much more in the other (more well known) models. Insurance is also cheaper! The Versa is much more comfortable and fun to drive. Wish there was an arm rest... small price to pay. A lot of space in such a small sedan. Handles well on ice and snow. Great car!
Fuel economy, cruise controls on steering wheel, pricing, comfort, space.
Would have liked the rear seat to fold down like those in the hatchback version. Also, a center arm rest, lighted cruise control buttons, and a driver side vanity mirror. Still some bugs to be worked out of the tire pressure sensors (cold affects them).
