2009 Nissan Versa 1.8 S 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
This Versa hatchback replaced a Honda Prelude that got 32 MPG. We moved 96 miles from work and needed better gas mileage since gas was $4.89 for regular in So. Cal. I am totally amazed by the 37.88 MPG we get on the highway (35 if the A/C is running). I am 6 foot five and weigh 230 lbs. There is plenty of head leg and shoulder room for me and with the driver seat in the furthest position to the rear a normal sized adults legs do not touch the back of my seat. We got the magnetic grey which has a sparkle to the paint and hides dirt well, so washing is only a twice monthly chore. I was able to get 6 bags of topsoil and a 3.3 cubic foot bag of rock in the rear cargo area and still had room.
Gas mileage, overall room, sporty look I love that the hatchback is making a comeback. High road clearance compared to Honda fit.
Center console. More power outlets. Factory tint on all rear windows. Alloy wheels on all models.
