The new 2018 Nissan Versa is available with a generous choice of available amenities, keeps the driver engaged, and offers a better personality than the outgoing model. What’s even more, it is spacious, comfortable, and offers an inexpensive way to get from point A to point B. other highlights that define the latest Versa include a high-fuel economy rating, a low base price, an adult-friendly backseat, a large trunk, and a comfortable ride quality. The Nissan Versa 2018 should be expected sometime in the first half of 2018.
Popularly known for its rock-bottom price point, the new 2018 Nissan Versa is housed in the subcompact sedan segment. But did you know that it offers an impressive fuel economy, a spacious interior, or a voluptuous trunk. Well, that’s what sums up the Versa.
For such a price point, certain compromises are expected such as lack of remarkable standard features for the base model. But even so, there are optional features that you can equip it with but that will go a long way in significantly increasing its price. Upper trim models come adequately equipped with tons of equipment for the money, and they too have some options one can opt for.
Besides the additional features that can negate the price advantage the Versa offers, the Nissan Versa 2018 is well-suited for people looking for a sensible vehicle that offers ample space for its occupants. The 2018 Nissan Versa interior however lacks sophistication and refinement, which is expected considering its price.
Some of the rivals you can consider include the Scion IA, Chevrolet Sonic, Kia Rio, and the Hyundai Accent. The 2018 Kia Rio hatchback price starts from an MSRP of $15,495, while that of the Rio Sedan starts from $14,165. Highlights include a stylish interior and exterior, a strong acceleration, high-quality interior materials, a spacious seating, and a long warranty. Motivation is offered by a 138-horsepower – generating four-cylinder 1.6L engine. Although speculative at the moment, the Nissan Versa 2018 release date should be expected sometime this fall.
The Hyundai Accent sedan price starts from an MSRP of around $14,745. Compelling reasons include a long warranty coverage, a strong acceleration, a spacious cabin, a comfortable and quiet ride, and an upscale interior ambience that evokes a premium feel. Power comes from a 1.6L four-cylinder engine good for 137 horsepower. The 2018 Nissan Versa release date, too, hasn’t been defined yet by Nissan but rumors are rife it will be offered either in the latter half of this year or early 2018.
