The 2021 Nissan Versa: Affordable and Lots to Offer!
The compact car segment has been abandoned by most manufacturers over the past few years. The fashion is for SUVs of all sizes and in many places, this is the only economical and compact solution offered to consumers, but not at Nissan!
In fact, we offer subcompact SUVs (Kicks and Qashqai), but we haven't given up on all those who wish to turn to a less expensive car. This solution is called Versa.
With the 2021 Nissan Versa comes 15 years of experience and expertise. It was in the summer of 2006 that the Versa appeared as a 2007 model. It was so impressive at the time that it won praises everywhere. Its vocation changed in the 2010s to serve consumers looking for a more economical car and it has fulfilled its mission wonderfully.
With the following blog, learn more about the Nissan Versa's fuel consumption, engine power, features and more. You can also take advantage of current Nissan promotions at Nissan Charlevoix, your dealership in La Malbaie near Clermont. Nissan Charlevoix gives you an online appointment to find the new Nissan vehicle or used Nissan vehicle that will perfectly meet your needs.
The new Versa has an assertive style that is in line with the other products in the family, making it very elegant. It is available in three models: S, SV and SR. With the first one, you can find a five-speed manual transmission, which will please those who always like to be in full control of the vehicle they drive. Otherwise, a continuously variable transmission (CVT) is available on all models.
A Complete of Equipment
The Versa may be a subcompact car, it has everything you could want in a car. Right off the bat, push-button start, Siri Eyes Free, Bluetooth telephony and cruise control are all part of the package. Climbing up the lineup, we find Apple CarPlay and Android Auto apps, heated front seats, and then more luxurious features like Nissan's connected services (NissanConnect), automatic climate control, and rear door and driver attention alerts.
When it comes to safety, the Versa comes with the Safety Shield 360 package that offers a host of features aimed at keeping you safe and on the road.
Impressive Road Handling
Talking about the road, this is where the Versa expresses itself in such a way that you can't help but be impressed. It's quite simple: behind the wheel of this car, you feel as if you're in a superior car. The seats are super comfortable, and the soundproofing is excellent to isolate you from outside distractions. The suspension elements have been tuned to provide comfort, but without losing sight of the fact that sportier driving is still possible. The Versa reacts magnificently to everything you ask of it. In truth, it adapts to everything!
As for performance, it's a very interesting compromise: under the hood is a 1.6L 4-cylinder that delivers 122 horsepower and 114 lb-ft of torque. These modest numbers are misleading, as the Versa is small and light, so you're never short on power, whether you're trying to get through heavy traffic or passing traffic. Better yet, the continuously variable transmission does an interesting job, with simulated ratios that make it feel like a conventional automatic transmission. As for the manual transmission, it allows you to have a little more fun!
When we talk about a compromise, it's because this power that's exploited wonderfully is never a hindrance to the excellent fuel economy. Official figures show a rating of 7.4L/100km in the city and 5.9L on the highway. Combined, this gives us an average of 6.7L/100km. These figures are obtained with the CVT transmission. For those who prefer the manual transmission, the sacrifice is minimal, as the combined average is 7.7L/100km.
And then there's the tempting price range. To take it all in and discover the 2021 Nissan Versa, stop by Nissan Charlevoix for a test drive. Be warned that the Versa seduction works wonders!
