2011/12 Nissan Versa?


It does look like it.
Unless this is the new Sentra?

It does look quite weird no matter what it is. Sort of a Leaf with a trunk.
Not the prettiest thing.
Nissans/Infinitis all seem to be melting lately…

One thing is sure, they can only improve on the Versa. After a whole week of test driving the base $11 000 model, I came out pretty depressed. Sure options would help, but then it is way too expensive for what it is.
Not something I would want to drive every day.
I would much rather get a used Sentra for the money. A much better car in every way.

  1. Oh no, the replacement for our Tiida? (Versa in Europe). The car came too late (sold in Japan since 2004, introduced on European markets in 2008), was too average and here in Germany were only a few ads to make it a well-known car.

    On the German market the Golf-sized Tiida is outsold by the Qashqai which means a unique and popular blend of SUV, compact car and MPV.

    I guess the 2011 model (if it will be sold in Europe) won't have a chance against Golf, Astra or the 2011 Focus which have more style and are more sophisticated.

    And people who are looking for a compact car which offers value for money go better with the Hyundai i30 or Kia Cee'd (both are cheaper, offer better warranty and are on par or better than the Tiida).

  2. It almost looks to small to be a versa, i remember reading that nissan was gonna bring to the states two other small cars to go with the cube, the micra being one of them and perhaps this ?

  3. I like everything except the grille and the odd wheel wells up front(oh…forgot to add.. why they head lamps that nearly touch the a-pillar?).

    It seems to me, since the 1994.5 Nissan Sentra LE(or whatever it was called in 1994… "special edition" Sentra… loaded up)….. Nissan hasn't been the same, to me.

    Had a 1990 Sentra…excellent car, fun to drive, and was over-built..but that was why it was so great.. lasted forever.

    These new Sentras… the past 15 years… no thanks.

  4. They should just upgrade the Sunny..(bring us the Neo-Sunny, Vince talked about/posted a photo, awhile back)…. and bring it here instead.
    That would be the car to get my interest, again.
    Not this ..whatever it's supposed to be.

  6. this is the all new versa sedan. It will have a load of standard features and be a huge value story in that segment. This car is going to be used to prop up Nissan's sales numbers for North America.
