The 2018 Nissan Versa sedan and hatchback are about a few, and it is not our general score. Basic, cheap transportation begins on the rear foot in our evaluations system because those cars prioritize price–typically at a cost paid by psychedelic relaxation, functionality, and style.
At only $12,875 to start, the Nissan Versa sedan is among the most affordable new cars in the marketplace today and we’re guessing that matters more than our 3.8 overall evaluation. Only fuel economy buoys a sinking position. (Read more about how we rate cars.)
We don’t need to look far to find a Versa we like, however. The Versa Note hatchback, that does not share any sheet metal with an automobile, looks better, is much more practical for many drivers, and has more rear leg space. Choosing the hatchback tacks on hundreds to the final price of what is likely going to become a budget-driven choice for most shoppers, so we acquiesce that many buyers will select the sedan over the hatchback.
This year, the sedan carries on with few changes from last year. The cost remains the same, as does the modest material in foundation S Pen which have an inline-4 mated into some 5-speed manual. We’re guessing many buyers will consider that the S Plus, which swaps the manual for a constantly variable automatic transmission (CVT) that offers much better gas mileage, but the value proposition isn’t there for us it costs thousands more for an autobox and cruise control.
We’d advise buyers to scrounge for longer change and appear at the SV version that provides upgraded cloth upholstery plus some other characteristics. A rearview camera was made standard equipment on all Versas midway throughout the 2018 model year, but earlier production versions are likely to be in dealer inventories for quite a while.
The hatchback does not provide a manual, but it doesn’t need it. Starting with S, the hatchback ascends to SV, and SL trim levels offering increasing features.
The proportions of this Versa sedan do not just appeal to us. It has been force-fed corporate components such as its grille, headlights, lower fascia, and bumpers that look too large–especially the headlights. Along the sides, the Versa sedan manages to wear its shape somewhat better but modest, 15-inch wheels don’t fit the oversized wheel arches on most versions.
The sedan’s taillights reach across a rather large rear overhang, and a decklid-mounted spoiler adds a touch of flair to an otherwise nondescript tail.
The Versa Note conveys the small-car look much better, according to people, and Nissan has paid more attention to this model. The Versa Note wears another face than the automobile, an adapted version of Nissan’s V-motion grille. The boomerang is bookended by headlights that sit relatively high up on the Versa Note’s maw, with large jowls to fill the space ahead of the front wheels. In profile, the Versa Note includes a set of distinctive character lines that hit up toward a tall rear end, punctuated with a roof-mounted spoiler on several versions. The Versa Note plants its rear tires nearer toward the tail, which helps tidy up round the hatchback.
Indoors, the Versa does not attempt much by way of style. The Versa Note and Versa sedan are more aligned inside, with a dual-cockpit look that doesn’t take many risks apart from the centre stack. Huge swathes of hard black plastic are observable, and the appearance isn’t improved much by spending more.
