2009 Nissan Versa 1.8 S 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


I'm not sure where car magazines got it into their head that the premiere concern of most drivers is 'fun'. Fun driving in a stop-and-go city you probably mean gunning it to the next light and cutting people off. Whee! You want fun, Mazda 3 makes more sense. For those of us who have commute on a city grid and not pick of a stable of autos, the Versa does great and is probably a better fit than the Fit. Edmunds admits in their Fit review: "However, more comfort-minded consumers may better appreciate the Nissan's quieter cabin, cushier seats and higher available feature content." I saved myself $3000 over Fit prices, have more horsepower and more torque, and a 7 yr ext. warranty.

Favorite Features

Quiet for commutes, 30 mpg city. Stereo in the S sounds great, controls obvious. Cargo area very versatile, more room than the Fit (the 2009 Honda specs include passenger seat down driving space. Really, guys?) Deep glove box and convenient storage area above radio.

Suggested Improvements

Antilock brakes should be standard on all cars; shame on Nissan for making them optional. EZ to access auxilliary port for portable mp3 player use should also be standard in this day and age. Wider and deeper cup holders.
