The Versa is Nissan's smallest car and least expensive model. Redesigned for 2012, the second generation model uses advanced powertrain technologies to turn in a respectable EPA rating of 31/40 (city / highway) on most models. Roughly the same size as the Hyundai Accent, the Versa has more legroom and cargo volume than other vehicles in its class. Touting a low starting price of under $12,000 the base model forgoes some common equipment, but a Versa with a reasonable amount of equipment can still be had for around $17,000.
