2013 Nissan Versa 1.6 SL 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl CVT)
Bought a Nissan Versa SL. The cabin has more than enough space for four passengers, as well as providing comfortable seats. The interior is completely made of hard plastic, make sure your foot doesn't hit the door on the way out. The 1.6L engine is adequate around town and really does sip gas. On the highway, there's tons of wind noise, and the CVT, while providing smooth acceleration and excellent fuel economy, can be heard at any speed. Don't be fooled by the 109 hp rating, the car has more than enough get up and go. Excellent visibility all-around, smooth ride.
Rear spoiler for parking.
Cruise/Audio controls on steering wheel.
Intelligent Key/Push Start Ignition.
Continuously Variable Transmission, will never drive a traditional automatic again.
Trunk is huge.
Cheap looking dashboard.
''Premium Speakers'' on the SL trim are mediocre at best. Volume becomes distorted even at low settings.
Wind noise is incredibly high.
Cup holders are placed far upfront.
No center console.
1.6L engine feels unrefined.
Non-telescopic steering wheel can make it hard to find a comfortable driving position.
