The seats are so incredibly comfortable, and so much leg room in the front and back seats. Looks cute and it is a very spacious car. The controls are easy to understand and operate and the 5-inch color screen provides large, legible directions; it's also an unlikely target for smash-and-grab thieves.
Unless, you are hell bent on buying a hatchback only. The base-level model is appropriately named the Nissan Versa Base, fitted with a 1.

Standard features across the lineup include a rear-window defroster, a tilt-adjustable steering wheel, intermittent windshield wipers, and full-length side-curtain airbags. Driving Impressions Thanks to its softly tuned suspension, the 2011 Nissan Versa offers the sort of pillow-like ride that's usually reserved for much larger cars. This subcompact goes head-to-head with the Toyota Yaris, Chevrolet Aveo and Hyundai Accent.

Check for smoke from the exhaust if the engine is worked hard, driving up a hill in a high gear is a good test. Be sure to check the Fair Purchase Price on kbb.
The upholstery is made from a velour-type material and everything sticks to it - especially dog fur! Headroom and legroom are offered in abundance for normal sized mortals, by that I mean those cutting it a bit less than 6 foot in height. First service is at 1000 km and at every 5000 km interval thereafter. The Versa can be equipped quite well for a small, low-priced vehicle and, in some ways, can rival the comforts of a larger, more sophisticated car.

As a hatchback, the Versa looks considerably more elegant and complete as a design, with the gently curved roofline and kicked-up back pillar. Make sure that the engine starts easily and idles smoothly from the moment it ticks over. As in so many smaller cars, the center rear seating position is not the most comfortable. Unlike Honda's Fit, the Versa hatchback's split rear seat doesn't fold down in a way that provides a flat cargo floor, but lowering it reveals a sizable 50 cubic feet of space.
