According to Nissan, the second generation of its Versa sedan features “the lowest MSRP in America” at $10,990 (not including a destination fee), with the sub note that the company’s aforementioned assessment is based on “MY12 competitors at time of print”.
Some of you will say, and you’re right. But what we did learn today is the pricing of the entire Versa range that includes three more models aside from the cut price, entry-level S trim.
The 2012 Versa, which was introduced to America at the New York Auto Show this past April, is based on the latest Micra’s platform with all four variants powered exclusively by a 1.6-liter gasoline engine delivering 109-horses at 6,000 rpm and 107 lb-ft of peak torque at 4,400 rpm.
For those of you not lured by the $10,990 price tag of the based 1.6 S model that comes with a five-speed manual gearbox returning a fuel economy of 27mpg city, 36mpg highway and 30mpg combined, Nissan offers the same trim with a Xtronic CVT transmission priced at $12,760. The latter is rated at 30 mpg city, 38 mpg highway and 33 mpg combined.
The two other available and better equipped versions are the Versa 1.6 SV CVT and 1.6 SL CVT priced at $14,560 and $15,560 respectively. All the aforementioned MSRPs exclude applicable tax, title, license fees and destination charges.
