Benefits of Driving a 2014 Nissan Versa Sedan

As the most inexpensive car in America, the 2014 Nissan Versa offers exceptional value per dollar. Few other cars in the compact segment can match it for base price. Even the top-trim SL starts at $16,890. And that price buys a lot of car, both in features and in spaciousness. Fuel economy is strong too; the CVT-equipped Versa achieves up to 35 mpg combined, according to the EPA. With the addition of the attractive new Versa Note, hatchback lovers will have something to celebrate as well, as the car is loaded with intelligent interior features and functionality for people on the go, all while carrying a price tag below offerings like the Ford Fiesta and Honda Fit.

What's new for 2014?

Following its 2012 redesign and minimal changes last year, the Nissan Versa sedan receives a few minor updates for 2014, including a revised suspension and steering set-up for improved handling. The Versa SL features a new tricot headliner and 4.3-inch audio display, as well as 16-inch alloy wheels. SV models feature a 60/40 split-fold rear seat, and base S models now include a tachometer. Pricing for the Versa sedan remains unchanged from 2013, with the base S model starting at $11,990. The price means the Versa is still the lowest-price car in America.

  • One of the most inexpensive new cars available

  • fuel economy

  • 5-door hatchback convenience

Model Review

The 2014 Nissan Versa is offered in both sedan and hatchback body styles. Four trim levels are offered on the Versa sedan: S, S Plus, SV and SL. All are powered by a 109-hp 1.6L 4-cylinder with continuously variable valve timing. In the S, a 5-speed manual transmission puts power to the front wheels, while a 4-speed automatic is optional. The other three trims are equipped with Nissan's Xtronic continuously variable transmission. When so equipped, the Versa sedan delivers an EPA estimate of 40 mpg on the highway.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
