2020 Nissan Versa
2020 Nissan Versa
Despite having earned the title of the "least expensive car in America", a look at the new 2020 Versa suggests that Nissan is more ambitious about its third-generation model. The 2020 Versa is more dynamic and comes packed with a host of innovations.
The 2020 Versa version is 2.3 inches lower, wider by 1.8 inches, and 1.6 inches longer. It has new taillights and a C-pillar with the inclusion of Nissan's V-motion grille and signature headlights. Besides, it is available in 3 trims: S, SV, and SR. The S trim of the 2020 Versa operates on 15-inch alloys, the SV trim on 16-inch alloys, and the SR trim on alloy wheels of 17 inches, with a darker grille and black mirror tops.
The 2020 Versa has interior features like a low dash with hard plastics. Stitched dash panels that are padded, performance vinyl, aluminum-looking knobs, and a distinctive floating screen characterize the interior. The 2020 Versa offers comfortable seating with a telescoping steering wheel, spacious front legroom, shoulder room, and increased backspace.
Engine, transmission, fuel economy
The 2020 Versa is powered by a 1.6 liter 4-cylinder that doles out 122 horsepower and 114 lb-ft torque. For the 2020 Versa S, the standard is a 5-speed manual transmission on 1.6 5MT, while for all other 2020 Versa models, an Xtronic CVT with D-Step logic control is standard. The 2020 Versa's fuel efficiency rating of 27 mpg in the city, 35 mpg on the highway, and 30 mpg when combined is also quite the steal.
The S model comes equipped with a standard push-start button, steel wheels of 15 inches, 3 USB ports, an audio system with four speakers, Bluetooth, Siri Eyes Free/Google Assistant voice recognition, and a 7.0-inch dash screen. The 2020 Versa SV boasts a 7.0-inch touchscreen that has the Nissan Connect infotainment system compatible with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Sirius XM connectivity. The Versa SR also has a 6-speaker audio system and automatic climate control.
Advanced airbags, a LATCH system, pressure monitoring, and cruise control systems are additional safety hallmarks offered by the 2020 Versa.
