2018 Nissan Versa: A Model Review Daniel Morton September 25, 2018 Automotive When Versa got its latest edition redesigned for 2018, it instantly got into fame because of its practicality and utility value. The 2018 Nissan Versa got spotted by the car enthusiasts when they saw its ability to haul and transport. Its comfortable cabin, smooth rides and the large cargo trunk made more value than it asks in its sticker price. The experts in the Salinas Valley Nissan dealer remarked that the Versa is a common man’s car who do not believe in too much luxury. Engine and Powertrain The 2018 Nissan Versa gets wheezy with its four-cylinder engine that makes a 109-of hp. The four-cylinder is generally paired with a five-speed manual that is standard for the base, or a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) for the higher trims. The Versa loses the previously available four-speed automatic transmission for 2018. That leaves the base S model with only a manual gearbox; the other two Versa models have a standard CVT. Fuel Economy The trims of Versa that are CVT-equipped feature a rear spoiler clubbed with rear-wheel air deflectors to make the car design more aerodynamic so that it can further improve the fuel economy. The result was somewhat successful as the EPA estimate counts 26 mpg of mileage in the city, 35 in the highway, and 29 when combined. Exterior Dimensions The 2018 Nissan Versa wears a new look this time after the redesign that is cuter, to some extent funkier and more handsome than its last year version. The Versa now comes with a pair of intermittent windshield wipers that is standard on all trims. The new Deep Blue Pearl gets newly available to the existing paint color palette. Interior Comfort The interior cabin of the 2018 Nissan Versa is impressively spacious. The layout of the cabin shows its ergonomically arranged components that make the getting in and out of the Versa easy for all. The seats are comfortably placed in an angle that doesn’t give any fatigue. The 2018 Versa has received a couple of new standard interior features that include an adjustable front headrests and map lights. The cabin is moderately quiet, and the rides are consistently smooth. Cargo Space The 2018 Nissan Versa is fair enough in loading bulky goods as well as accommodating passengers. The interior cabin is split in a 60/40 divide among which the latter expands about 15 cu. Ft. for only cargo, placed behind the rear seats. Driving Impressions The 2018 Nissan Versa is specifically built to transport passengers with the amount of cargo they wish to carry with them. The driver engagement is not that prominent, but the body of the new Versa rolls in its own style through the turns, while the chassis makes a peppier ride. The steering in the 2018 Nissan Versa is significantly boosted demonstrating a reasonable cornering grip. The soft suspension on the other hand made the rides in Versa comfortable in every means. The Bottom Line The Salinas Valley Nissan dealership experts were all-praise about the 2018 Nissan Versa that made a strong impression for its utility value sedan that is expert in performing its every day tasks of conveyance both in the urban as well as suburban settings.
