The inexpensive model has a new optional package and updated cabin
Nissan is keeping base prices for the 2017 Versa Sedan in the United States at $12,825 (after $835 for destination), which is exactly the same as last year. The new model features small upgrades like an improved cabin and a new option package that combines some popular amenities.
The latest Versa looks the same on the outside, but the interior features a slight update that moves the USB ports, adds a 12-volt outlet, and redesigns the cup holder. You can see the changes in the gallery below. While the tweaks aren’t revolutionary, the Versa doesn’t look like a horrible place to be – at least in this price point.
The cost for the 1.6 S with a five-speed manual gearbox doesn't change, and Nissan eliminates the the option of having this trim with an automatic gearbox for 2017. Instead, the next highest level is now the S Plus with a CVT. However, it’s slightly cheaper for 2017 at $14,825 compared to $14,875 for the 2016 model. The SV and SL levels also cost the same as last year at $16,415 and $17,975, respectively.
The $500 SV Special Edition Package is new for 2017, and it makes the inexpensive model's interior a better place to spend time. Customers get a leather-wrapped steering wheel, five-inch infotainment system with Bluetooth support, and rearview camera. On the outside, ticking the box for this option adds 15-inch aluminum wheels and foglights.
There are no changes to the powertrain range for 2017, and the only available engine is a 1.6-liter four-cylinder with 109 horsepower (81.3 kilowatts). With the CVT, the sedan gets 31 miles per gallon city, 39 mpg highway, and 34 mpg combined.
If you’re looking for inexpensive transportation and don’t want to buy a used vehicle for some reason, the Versa Sedan’s low price makes it an attractive choice. Examples from the 2017 model year are available at dealers in the United States now.
