2008 Nissan Versa 1.8 SL 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl CVT)


The Versa is an economy car in first class cladding. The Versa has more than other cars in its class - larger tires (15"), larger interior space (feels bigger than it is) and good gas mileage. Some say the car is breezy, I don't find it breezy at all. I drive 90 miles each way on my once-a- week commute and find the car solid and comfortable on the interstate. The seats are large and solid and nicely upholstered. Interior looks expensive like a Maxima, way better than our Echo's plasto box interior. Exterior has that funky European styling that we just don't get over here in North America. Engine is capable - a bit buzzy but with the CVT it settles down once up to speed.

Best Features

Heated mirrors, DTR lights, technology package (blue tooth, Rockford Fosgate stereo, multifunction steering wheel), interior A+++, fun to drive, funky design.

Worst Features

Lighted buttons on steering wheel, improve the gas mileage (getting 29 on average - should do better). Offer the Intelligent Key on Canadian models - why did we not get this like the US models?
