2009 Nissan Versa 1.8 S 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 6M)
We got the S Model with the power pack option, including cruise control, power windows, power locks, keyless remote entry. This is a really well-designed car. The interior is extraordinarily roomy and comfortable and looks and feels great; there is lots of cargo capacity; the sound system is great; the mileage is good; the air conditioning seems very efficient and has lots of different adjustment options; the ride is decent for a smallish car; the exterior (I got the sapphire blue) is snappy; lots of safety features. I actually look forward to driving to and from work.
Interior room and comfort; cargo capacity; price, fuel efficiency, and safety. I also like the 6-speed manual which is sometimes hard to get with cruise control and other power options. The engine seems to have plenty of power for the size of the car.
Standard ABS brakes would have been nice, even in the base model, as would a center armrest between the otherwise exceptionally comfortable front seats.
