2017 Nissan Versa Review
As a small sedan, it’s no surprise that the 2017 Nissan Versa has a lot to offer in terms of efficiency and advanced technology features. This isn’t all you can expect from this vehicle, though. This review will give you a better idea of just some of the features and capabilities that shoppers in Mobile, Prichard, and Saraland will appreciate.
Let’s get started by looking at how the Nissan Versa gets the pep in its step.
2017 Versa: Performance Specifications
All five trim levels of the 2017 Nissan Versa come standard with a 1.6L 4-cylinder engine that gets a remarkable EPA-estimated 27 city/36 highway MPG1. This engine puts out 109 horsepower and 107 lb-ft of torque.
A front-wheel drivetrain comes standard paired with this powertrain. Depending on the trim level that you choose, you’ll have one of two transmission configurations. In Versa S, the base trim level, you’ll have a 5-speed manual transmission. All other trim levels come standard with the Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission).
The Xtronic CVT® allows for advanced efficiency. This configuration gets a respectable EPA-estimated 31 city/39 highway MPG1.
The 2017 Nissan Versa takes both interior passenger room and cargo space for your belongings to a whole new level.
The Versa has 41.8 inches of front legroom and 37 inches of rear legroom, which beats out many of its in-class competitors2. Additionally, this sedan has an incredible 14.9 ft3 of cargo room. While you and your loved ones are riding comfortably up front, know that you have what you need for a daytrip or week-long vacation stored in the back.
In addition to the many trim levels, there is an additional body style offered. The Nissan Versa Note, which holds most of the same capabilities and features as the Versa Sedan, has a hatchback rear that more than doubles the cargo capabilities of the Versa to 38.3 ft3 with the rear seats down.
Advanced Nissan Technology
Let’s take a look at some of the advanced features that make the spacious interior of this Nissan Versa just as entertaining as it is functional.
The Versa comes standard with a Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System and Voice Recognition. This system allows you to pair your cellphone with the vehicle’s 4-speaker surround system via Bluetooth®. Then, use the voice recognition to navigate your phone’s address book and make or answer phone calls using voice commands rather than your hands.
Other additional advanced features come standard in the upper trim levels of the Versa starting with the standard NissanConnectâ„ infotainment system with navigation and mobile apps. Use the 5.8-inch color touchscreen display to follow easy directions to your destinations or safely browse your smartphone’s social media apps.
