Through the years, the Versa nameplate has been utilized on both traditional 4-door sedans and 5-door hatchback sedans. The original Nissan Versa Sedan ran from 2007 until 2011, while the Nissan Versa Hatchback was available from 2007 to 2012. The 2012 model year saw the start of the second-generation Nissan Versa Sedan, while the hatchback model took the 2013 model year off before being reintroduced as the Nissan Versa Note in 2014. Both of these models lasted until last year, 2019. This year, there is no hatchback Versa, but the all-new, next-generation 2020 Nissan Versa is available near Newport New VA!
Although most consumers don’t expect much in the way of performance from subcompact, entry-level sedans like this model, the 2020 Nissan Versa might surprise you. The powertrain is tethered to all kinds of great technologies designed to improve performance, making the driving experience easier to handle and more fun to drive. Things like the Xtronic continuously variable transmission, hill start assist, variable valve timing and more lend themselves to this.
Although the subcompact Versa certainly isn’t the most spacious vehicle on the lineup, it attempts to enhance comfort as much as possible for up to five passengers. Features like the available heated seats and automatic temperature control certainly help out in that regard! On trips when you’re more likely to need more space for cargo than people, you’ll be stoked that your rear seat has a 60/40 split-fold ability. This allows you to maximize your space for both, even permitting a third passenger in the rear seat while still overflowing the trunk with stuff.
We’ve only scratched the surface of everything you can take advantage of in the 2020 Nissan Versa, as we haven’t even touched on aspects like connectivity or driver-assistive safety technologies, which the Versa offers in spades.
