The small sedan has been redesigned recently. It came with numerous improvements in various aspects, so we are pretty sure that the second production year won’t bring any particular changes. We count on the same design characteristics, which came with the recent overhaul. The Versa is still an affordable sedan, but now features a new design, characterized by significantly more attractive styling and more technologies. Therefore, we believe that the 2021 Nissan Versa won’t bring anything more important.
We may see a couple of additions in terms of standard equipment, but the rest of the vehicle should remain the same. This means familiar styling and mechanics, as well as the engine. This also means we should expect to see the new model in a typical time of year sometime in the last quarter of the next year.
2021 Nissan Versa Redesign
As we’ve just mentioned, the 2021 Nissan Versa shouldn’t come with bigger changes. This particularly refers to base design characteristics. The recent redesign has brought significant changes. First of all, a familiar V platform has remained, though with significant updates. The new model is more driveable and also more efficient. Of course, besides new mechanics, you can also see completely new aesthetics. The new-look follows the brand’s latest design language and comes with the latest edition of the famous V-motion grill. You may notice a lot of similarities with bigger sedans in the lineup, such as Sentra or Maxima. Of course, there are some distinctive details, so you definitely won’t mistake this small sedan for any other model around.
Once again, you may count on familiar design characteristics. The recent redesign has brought a completely new cabin layout. It’s no hard to notice that the new cabin looks significantly better. The dashboard is far more attractive, while you can also notice much better materials inside the car. Still, keep in mind that we are talking about an entry-level car, so the overall layout is rather simple. Of course, that doesn’t mean you will miss some of the most essential tech features that characterize modern cars.
When it comes to interior space, things are a little bit different compared to the previous generation. While the previous model was very generous in terms of the rear-seat legroom, the new model brings improvement in the front seats, while the second row is tighter compared to the predecessor.
When it comes to the cargo area, you may count on about 15 cubic feet in the trunk, which are decent numbers for the class and we like that trunk is deep and opens wide. Of course, the overall volume is much bigger, though one of the drawbacks is the fact that rear seats don’t fold flat.
Once again, this sedan is quite decent, especially if we consider the price tag. The second production year may bring a couple of novelties, but we do not doubt that most of the things will remain the same. Therefore, the 2021 Nissan Versa will certainly come standard with tech goodies like 7-inch touch-screen infotainment system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. In higher trims, you can also get satellite radio, a six-speaker stereo, automatic climate control, proximity keyless entry, remote start etc. Manually-adjustable seats are the only available, but that’s a quite typical thing for the class.
When it comes to safety, the current model is already pretty amazing. It comes standard with things like forwarding collision warning, pedestrian detection, and forward and reverse automatic emergency braking, in addition to lane departure warning, automatic high-beam headlights etc. Additionally, you can get blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, driver alertness monitoring, and a rear-seat reminder. That’s a pretty long list, given the price tag.
2021 Nissan Versa Engines
The 2021 Nissan Versa will carry on with the same powertrain in the offer. The recent redesign has brought a new version of a familiar 1.6-liter engine. It gets a slight boost so a max output now goes up to 122 horsepower. The engine comes with either manual or CVT gearbox and it both cases, you shouldn’t count on some spectacular driving experience. On the other side, fuel economy is pretty amazing, especially with the CVT gearbox, In that case, you may count on about 32 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway. If you prefer a manual transmission, mpg ratings are slightly lower. They go around 27 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway.
2021 Nissan Versa Release Date and Price
As the 2021 Nissan Versa will represent the second production year, we are pretty sure we will see it on the market sometime late in the next year. This is one of the most affordable models in the class. Base versions currently go around 14.800 dollars and we don’t expect bigger changes in the future.
