The concept of the Nissan Versa has been appealing to those who are looking for comfortable seating for five without having to break the bank. Nissan’s intentions of introducing a budget minded compact sedan doesn’t miss the mark at all when looking at what’s found inside. Offering many options you wouldn’t expect to find in a car priced under $15,000 will be what the 2018 Nissan Versa has to offer.
The 2018 Versa will be even more refined than the current model, and maintaining the idea of being one of the most affordable sedans on the market. Upgrading many of the most disappointing aspects of the 2016 and 2017 models while adding so much needed visual appeal. Expected to get an upgrade to the exterior, the new Versa will likely bring new and current consumers alike.
The following preview details all we know on the new 2018 Nissan Versa specs, features, price, and release date.
2018 Nissan Versa Specs and Features – S, SL, S+, and SV Model
The new lineup of 2018 Nissan Versa specs and features starts with refining the current model while offering some exterior appeal. A facelift has been needed as the boring trim packages have been lacking in the past few years. We’re hearing more style will be offered as well as a lighter aluminum chassis. Other improvements over the current model will likely include more acceleration and better handling at highway speeds.
The interior is expected to also get some upgrades as some of the most notable standard and optional features including a comprehensive technology package. Tech features including an around view backup camera, satellite radio, Bluetooth capable, hands-free calling and voice activation, iPhone and Android support, 3rd party app interface, and more.
The 2018 Versa will come in both a sedan and hatchback with the Note likely to become the most popular choice. The 2018 Nissan Versa Note will offer plenty of storage options with slightly less legroom than the sedan. The cargo room behind the 2nd seat is expected to be slightly more than the current model and will offer many trim options including a spoiler, chrome accents, smoked headlights, smoked headlight surrounds, and an overall stylish look.
The 2018 Nissan Versa engine is rumored to be a 4-cylinder 1.7 liter getting upwards of 110-hp along with a 5-speed manual, 4-speed automatic, and 2-speed CVT transmission option. The estimated gas mileage will come in around 28-32MPG/city and up to 42MPG/highway.

The 2018 Nissan Versa release date won’t be made official until the 2nd ½ of 2017, but with any luck, sales should begin in Asia before the end of the 3rd quarter. This shouldn’t be far from the truth as Nissan is one of the many auto manufacturers that sticks to a consistent annual launch cycle. Rumors are more of the same as sales outside of Asia won’t begin until the 4th quarter of 2017 with some having to wait until early 2018.
