Reviews for 2017 Nissan Versa

Overall Rating

3.7 out of 5 (7 reviews)

Gets me where I am going

I would recommend with certain qualifications. It is a basic car with necessary parts and functions. Nothing glamorous. I like the size. Gas mileage is fairly good.

Pros

  • Value: I needed a car in a hurry after my Prius was totalled. This was available and affordable.
  • Cargo Space: The trunk is large.
  • Seat Comfort: Quite good for a small car.

Cons

  • Cabin Noise: The cabin noise took some getting used to. Most obvious if I try to have a conversation using the appreciated Bluetooth
  • Dashboard: The center display of the gas gauge and the push button availablity of other details cannot be visualized in the light of day no matter how high the dash brightness is adjusted.
  • Ride and Handling: Rides fairly well on a smooth road/highway. Handling is not great though one can get used to it. Seems safe.

Right Car for the Price

Under the circumstances (no credit, low budget), this was the ideal vehicle to get from the dealership. It's basic: manual EVERYTHING; so not a great "comfort" car, but it'll get you from point A to point B, no worries.

Pros

  • Cost to Maintain: With the added maintenance package, still working budget, and no maintenance worries!
  • Fuel Economy: With a manual transmission, and a decent engine consumption to begin with, it sits around 36-38mpg!
  • Interior Space: Plenty of room for the size. For a tall driver, it's decent.

Cons

  • Ride and Handling: Clunky gearbox - it's slow to pick up in to the next gear, and is slow to accelerate after 3rd.
  • Technology and Entertainment: Has BT calling, but no media or command connectivity. Aux input for music only.

- Sam Winter, 2017 Nissan Versa

Take me where I need to go with minimal comfort

Cons:A little noisy, not many seat adjustments, no Bluetooth, except for phone calls. Although there are a few Pros: Good mileage, small, cruise control, spacious inside.

Pros

  • Fuel Economy: I drive 1000 miles a week
  • Ride and Handling: Easy to maneuver
  • Styling: Looks good

Cons

  • Cabin Noise: Very noisy
  • Power: Not very powerful
  • Technology and Entertainment: Very limited
