The 2015 Nissan Versa Sedan made its debut at the 2014 New York International Auto Show and if you were hoping to get wholesale changes to make the car more appealing to the public, then you’re in for a rude awakening. Granted, there are some upgrades, but not enough to make you itch to get your hands on one. Some simple tweaks to the front and rear sections and a slightly improved interior are the best that you can hope for with the 2015 model.
Even the engine, with its pedestrian 109-horsepower output, hasn’t been changed. We would’ve hoped that Nissan did something about that considering that a lot of its rivals offer significantly more power, even though you have to spend a little more for them.
In the end, the 2015 Versa Sedan does still hold the distinction of being the cheapest model in its segment, so Nissan is probably riding that advantage until the cows come home. How long will that strategy last depends on how fast consumers realize that spending a little more could get you a car much better equipped than the Versa Sedan. Then again, at this price point — typically aimed at young buyers with a very limited budget — every dime counts and sacrifices are made to save those dimes.
