Trim Levels and Standard Equipment

   

This model year's Versa comes in three trim levels: S, SV, and SR. Although it starts at just $14,730, the S trim has a surprising number of appealing features. It has a 7-inch touchscreen multimedia system, Bluetooth wireless technology, Google Assistant voice recognition, a hands-free text messaging assistant, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, Siri Eyes Free, an auxiliary audio input jack, three USB ports, and plenty of great advanced safety features. The SV trim comes standard with the continuously variable transmission, alloy wheels, satellite radio, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, body-colored mirrors and door handles, premium fabric seats, and some additional driver-assist features. Those who choose the SR trim will get upscale touches such as remote engine start, LED headlights, automatic climate control, a six-speaker audio system, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and some unique exterior and interior trim stylings. This trim also offers the SR Convenience Package, which includes heated front seats and adaptive cruise control.

       
   

   

Mechanical Features

   

All Versa trims get the same front-wheel-drive powertrain: a 1.6-liter 122 hp four-cylinder engine with a 5-speed manual transmission, with the XTRONIC CVT available for those  who'd rather not do the shifting themselves. Models with the 5-speed manual get an EPA-estimated 27 mpg city and 35 mpg highway, while the CVT models improve to an EPA-rated 32 mpg city/40 mpg highway.

   
   

Safety

   

Designing a subcompact car to be exceptionally safe is not always an easy task, but Nissan had no problem doing that with the 2020 Versa. This small sedan gets plenty of great passive and active safety features to make driving safer and easier than ever. All Versa models come with an advanced airbag system, zone body construction with front and rear crumple zones, and an intelligently engineered energy-absorbing steering column. There is also a standard tire pressure monitoring system with individual tire pressure display and easy-fill tire alert, which makes monitoring tire pressure and filling tires a breeze. The Versa's standard active safety features include automatic emergency braking, rear automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, automatic headlights, and a rearview camera. Upgrading to the SV trim also adds blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.
