Nissan's new Versa is the latest in a line of what the automaker refers to as "unconventional vehicles." Compared to the likes of the Juke and the Cube, the Versa looks pretty conventional to our eyes.
The next Versa will be available with navigation with traffic, satellite radio, USB and iPod integration, and Bluetooth connectivity. We hope that Bluetooth and USB will be standard, but we're fairly sure they'll be additional cost options.
With its new engine and a net weight savings of 150 pounds over the previous generation, Nissan estimates that its Versa will return 30 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway. That's up 5 mpg from last year but falls just short of the magic 40 mpg mark that most automakers in this segment seem to be aiming for.
