5 reasons to buy the 2017 Nissan Versa

1. Space for adults

You might expect that the rear seats on a subcompact sedan would only be spacious enough to accommodate children, but this isn't the case on the 2017 Versa. The front and rear rows are surprisingly spacious, offering generous headroom and legroom for up to five passengers. For added comfort, drivers who step up to the SV or SL trim can enjoy a height-adjustable driver's seat as well.

2. Surprisingly large trunk

You also might not expect much in the way of trunk space from such a small sedan, but the 2017 Nissan Versa offers 14.9 cubic feet of dedicated trunk space—a number that rivals even some midsize sedans. If you need extra storage for longer items, all 2017 Versa models except for the base S and S Plus trim are equipped with split-folding rear seats. These can be folded down to extend trunk space as needed.

3. Great fuel economy

One of the best things about owning a small sedan is the fuel economy that comes along with it, and the 2017 Versa is no exception here. While many factors can affect fuel economy, the 2017 Versa base trim with 1.6L four-cylinder engine and continuously variable transmission (CVT) gets an EPA-estimated 34 mpg combined.

This makes it a great option for those who are looking to take their driving adventures farther with fewer stops at the pump.

4. Essential features

While the 2017 Nissan Versa isn't a luxury sedan by any means, it does come with some essential features that will make your drive more enjoyable. Standard equipment on the base S trim includes power mirrors, air conditioning, Bluetooth® phone connectivity, and a four-speaker sound system.

5. Easy maneuverability

The smaller size of the 2017 Versa makes it a breeze to handle around sharp corners, through crowded city streets, and even into tight parking spaces. Standard traction and stability control also inspire added confidence behind the wheel.
