Which Versa does Edmunds recommend?

Only the SV trim level equipped with the Special Edition package (aluminum wheels, push-button start and a leather-wrapped steering wheel) is appealing. The Versa's less expensive trim levels are simply too bereft of style and substance to catch our eye. To put it bluntly, buy the most Versa you can afford to buy.

Edmunds' Expert Review

  • Giant back seat for such a small car
  • Comfortable ride over bumps
  • Large trunk
  • Low base price
  • Driving experience, style and personality are all bland
  • Noisy and slow acceleration
  • No telescoping steering wheel
  • Low-rent cabin materials
  • SV Special Edition gets more features this year
  • Part of the second generation Versa introduced in 2012

Overall rating

The 2019 Nissan Versa has a few things going for it, including a comfortable ride, pretty good fuel economy and a spacious interior. And when had in its most basic trim level, it's one of the least expensive cars on the market. It would certainly make a good choice for anyone who's a Lyft or Uber driver.

But that most inexpensive trim level offers only basic amenities, and the only transmission available is a five-speed manual. We think most shoppers will be attracted to the Versa's SV trim level with its optional Special Edition package. But for that price, the only thing the Versa has in its corner is high fuel economy. Most rival cars offer more power and nicer interior materials.

So while the most inexpensive Versa might make the most sense, it's the least appealing version of the car. If you absolutely need a new vehicle, and interior and cargo space are at the top of your list, the Versa might work out OK. Otherwise, we recommend checking rival sedans that are more appealing, such as the Chevrolet Sonic, Kia Rio and Toyota Yaris.

2019 Nissan Versa models

The 2019 Nissan Versa is a subcompact sedan available in S, S Plus and SV trim levels. Every Versa sedan comes standard with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine (109 horsepower, 107 pound-feet of torque). The base S trim offers only a five-speed manual transmission. The S Plus and the SV come standard with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT).

Standard equipment on the base S includes 15-inch steel wheels, power mirrors, manual locks and crank windows, a rearview camera, a 7.0-inch touchscreen display, Bluetooth, a USB port, and a four-speaker sound system with an auxiliary audio jack.

The S Plus adds a CVT automatic transmission, cruise control and a rear spoiler.

The SV trim adds upgraded cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver seat, a driver-seat armrest, a 60/40-split folding rear seat, power locks and windows, chrome exterior door handles and keyless entry. The SV's Special Edition package adds 15-inch alloy wheels, foglights, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, push-button start, a vehicle immobilizer and Nissan's Easy-Fill Tire Alert.

Driving

The Versa is a bland car to drive. It's slow to accelerate, and it feels soft and disconnected when you're driving around turns. It also gets noisy because of the droning engine caused by the continuously variable transmission. There isn't much good to say.

Comfort

The Versa has a soft, springy ride that soaks up bumps quite well. Seat comfort is hampered by a lack of adjustability. And interior noise is excessive when accelerating aggressively due to the underpowered engine and the CVT.

Interior

The Versa has a big back seat and it's easy to see out of, but that's about all that's good. The driving position suffers from lack of standard height adjustability and steering-wheel telescoping. Visibility is expansive. The quality of interior materials is subpar.

Utility

Its 14.9-cubic-foot trunk challenges those of midsize sedans for space. It's enormous for a subcompact sedan. A folding rear seatback is found only in the SV. Small-item storage is poor apart from a big glovebox.

Technology

Tech is pretty much restricted to a rearview camera, a USB port, Bluetooth and a touchscreen. You can get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto on the SV trim as an option. No accident avoidance tech is available.

Ive been waiting for the right time to purchase a new car. I wanted a 5 speed manual bc I like shifting gears. My 2019 versa is just what I need. Gas saver, comfortable seating, bluetooth, reliable, affordable, and simple. I didnt want anything expensive to maintain that's why I chose the versa. Im satisfied!

S 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
Just bought a 2019 versa so far so good! I like the fact that its a simple car. I was looking for a new car that got great mileage at a great price. I feel the lack of electronics and power windows etc. Will aid in the Long Jevity and future maintenance costs. They say it has plane styling but I think it's OK looking car. Very happy with it. I hope it lasts me a very long time Update: have had The versa over a year now almost 20k no issues so far. Mpg 33 combined.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Nissan Versa?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
