2021 Nissan Versa Performance And Price Calgary
Great Looks and Exterior Design
The Versa boasts a deep v-neck front grille and a smoothly curved roofline, flowing back to a chunky rear sporting a low spoiler on the trunk lip. The front headlights are larger than usual for a car of these pert dimensions but are nicely swept back to avoid an overly cramped look. All in all, this is a car that looks much more expensive than it actually is.
Nissan Versa Buying Options
Surprising Power Under the Hood
The Nissan Versa features a 1.6L inline-four engine under the hood, putting out a highly respectable 122 horsepower to propel the subcompact frame smoothly and responsively. In most models the output is passed to front-wheel drive through a continuously variable transmission (CVT), although on the base trim the transmission is a five-gear manual variety.
The CVT configuration in particular offers commendable commuting performance, especially considering the excellent fuel economy figures of 7.3L / 100km in the city and 5.9L / 100km on the highway.
Interior, Cargo, and Tech
The Versa's passenger cabin is roomier than you'd expect from its subcompact designation. In particular, the rear seat offers generous leg room of 78.7cm, making it a genuine option for smaller adults rather than just a space dedicated to children.
Cargo space is similarly ample with a standard capacity of 425 litres in the trunk, plenty enough for most daily requirements.
As far as infotainment is concerned, the generous 7" screen is integrated into the dashboard rather than being perched precariously on top, giving an extra upscale feel to the cabin. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are both available for those needing smartphone integration.
Extensive Safety Features
For a car in this price bracket, the Versa has an excellent suite of active safety features, with nearly all elements of the Nissan Safety Shield 360 present and correct. Highlights of the standard package are set to include:
- Forward intelligent emergency braking with full pedestrian detection.
- Rear intelligent emergency braking.
- Blind spot warnings and rear cross-traffic alerts.
- Lane departure warnings.
- High beam assist.
Moving up the trims opens up extra options including adaptive cruise control and a full 360-degree camera system.
