2019 Nissan Versa Sedan remains impressively cheap

A new car for under $13,000? What year is it?

The Nissan Versa sedan is one of the most affordable new cars you can buy, and even with a slight price bump, the story stays the same as it enters the 2019 model year.

The 2019 Nissan Versa starts at $12,360. For that price, you get a five-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive -- all Versa trims make do with the same 1.6-liter I4 gas engine that makes 109 horsepower. Standard equipment on the base Versa S trim includes steel wheels, cloth seats, Bluetooth and a backup camera. It's bare bones, though, so it lacks things like a USB port, cruise control and power windows.

Yep, it's a sedan.

If you don't want to shift your own gears, you can drop a bit more change on a continuously variable transmission. That brings the S trim's price up to $14,500. That also adds a few more features, including the aforementioned cruise control.

In the event you're hunting for just a bit more kit, you can move up to the $15,990 Versa SV. Here, you get a few things like a rear spoiler, chrome exterior door handles, upgraded cloth seats, more adjustability for the driver's seat and power windows.

But that's not all! If you drop another $800, you can pick up the SV Special Edition Package, which adds some popular creature comforts, including alloy wheels, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, keyless entry and Nissan's 7-inch infotainment system with satellite radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
