Small subcompact sedans are very few and far between these days. But the Nissan Versa is one of the few entries left on the market. It offers surprising levels of passenger space at an affordable price point.

The small 1.6-liter engine is adequate for the car and fuel economy is quite good. Those looking for sensible transportation full of value should check out the Versa.


Cheap, spacious, economical


Base model misses driver assists and stock Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, stubby looks, sedan-only

Bottom Line

One of the most affordable new cars on the market, the Nissan Versa offers fuss-free transport

2023 Nissan Versa SR Review

There aren’t a lot of cars that start under $20,000 these days. There are even less that slip under that bar when fully loaded.

Now admittedly, the 2023 Nissan Versa SR only sort of qualifies: in the US, it has an MSRP of $19,820, but the mandatory destination fee bumps that to $20,915. And in Canada, you’re looking at $24,683 CAD for this particular tester.

Still, that makes the Versa one of the most affordable new cars on the market, and less than half the price of the average new car purchase these days. With a fresh round of updates for 2023, is Nissan’s affordable option worth skipping the used car market, or opting for a larger, more expensive car? I spent a week with one to find out.

2021 Nissan Versa Review: First Drive

Nissan could have left things as they were in the current SUV-friendly market and not completely overhauled the Versa.

But we’re glad it did. It just gives people like us who still adore cars a ray of hope. North of the border here in Canada, all we got was the Versa Note, the hatch version of the sedan which passed on to the history books in 2012. While the entry-level baton passed on to the Micra next in 2014, the sedan spot sat empty. The 2021 Nissan Versa is the first Versa sedan ever to be sold in Canada and is the first completely new Versa in the US since 2011.

Entry-level it might be, but it certainly does not look ordinary.
