2014 Nissan Versa Note 1.6 SV 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl CVT)


Only if
you're a car reviewer who is jealous you weren't assigned the Murano convertible to review. It's a small engine car, no doubt, but I have experienced none of the sweaty palm moments reviers warned about entering the interstate. I was leary of the CVT
but acceleration is smooth and there when you need it. Braking is excellent. My only complaint so far is the steering has that mush 70's GM feeling. You don't feel as much close control taking corners, but I find it more than adequate in the city driving I do. Parking in the crowded urban neighborhoods I visit is a snap, and the passenger compartment, especially the back seat, is huge and comfortable.

Best Features

The ridiculously spacious passenger compartment. For a car this size, you can easily fit a couple of Big and Tall customers in the back seat without squishing yourself up against the dashboard. It's the Tardis of subcompacts.

Worst Features

Slightly more precise steering control with a little less mushiness.
