Danger, Will Robinson! It appears Nissan is adopting a new strategy to build cheap cars that eschew sporty styling and nice interiors.

Speaking with Autoblog following the unveiling of the 2012 Versa, David Reuter, Nissan's Vice President of Corporate Communications, stated "Our competitors have gone for sporty and styling, but that's not what these buyers want. Subcompact buyers want a dependable, roomy car with good fuel economy, and they want the features and specs to feel they spent a lot more on a car than they did."
