The Versa sits on Nissan's so-called V Platform, which it shares with the Kicks small crossover SUV.

From the front, there's a lot of Altima and Leaf DNA visible in the new Versa.

It's not clear if the 2020 Nissan Versa will hold on to its title as America's most affordable new car, but its content levels suggest otherwise.

The Versa will again be powered by a 1.6-liter four with a five-speed manual or an optional CVT.
