The Nissan Versa 2022 has not yet been released, but it is slated to hit the market this autumn. The price of the 2022 Versa has not yet been released, but one thing is certain: there will be no significant alterations this year. It still has the 1.6L inline-4 engine with 122 horsepower and 144 pound-feet of torque. These outputs are obviously lower, but they help to improve fuel efficiency.
The interior of the Versa is a perfect blend of luxury and functionality. The layout is elegant, despite the fact that harsh plastics dominate the majority of the interior. The sedan also comes with all of the necessary safety features, which is rather astounding. The lack of typical
smartphone connectivity in the touchscreen infotainment is one annoyance. The Hyundai Accent, Kia Rio, and Mitsubishi Mirage G4 are also competitors for the Versa.
The Nissan Versa is one of the greatest subcompact cars on the market because it is relatively inexpensive and provides excellent value for money. While the automobile is not designed to be sporty, it is designed to be both inexpensive and utilitarian. The Versa is also the only car in its class to have a comprehensive set of safety features, distinguishing it from its competitors.
This vehicle has various flaws, such as a lack of conventional smartphone connectivity and restricted back headroom. But, given the low price, that's understandable. The Versa likewise received an 81 in J.D. Power's dependability test, although its resale value is mediocre.
The external appearance of the 2022 Nissan Versa will remain unchanged, as it was last revised in 2020. It doesn't have a significant road presence because it's a subcompact car. Although the sharp and angular headlamps on the front fascia give it a striking and appealing appearance. The grille is in the traditional V shape with a flat bottom, as seen on other Nissan vehicles. The standard wheels are 15 inches, but the other two trims include alloy wheels that are 16 and 17 inches.
The Versa has a 6.8-inch ground clearance, which is excellent for a subcompact car. The side features powerful body lines running through it, as well as elegantly formed windows. The taillights at the back are likewise sharp and curved. The taillights' end also resembles a pointed arrowhead. Overall, it's a well-thought-out design. Nissan has done an excellent job of ensuring that the Versa is no longer dull.
Some of the Versa's external characteristics include:
15-inch, 16-inch, and 17-inch alloy wheels
Auto-high-beam LED headlights
DRLs with LEDs
Lamps that produce fog
Taillights with LEDs
Exterior mirrors that are heated
Grille is black with a chrome surround. Bezels for headlamps in chrome spoiler on the rear deck lid
At this pricing range, the Nissan Versa's interior is surprisingly comfy. The panel is also quite dynamic, contemporary, and functional in design. The console of higher trims has faux-leather trim embroidered on it, which gives it a luxury feel. However, the materials aren't very high-quality, with some harsh plastic thrown in for good measure. Standard upholstery is made of fabric, however luxury upholstery with contrasting stitching is also available.
The chairs provide adequate comfort and support. There are no power-adjustable front seats, although heated front seats are offered as an option. However, a leather steering wheel is included. The first row is fairly roomy, with plenty of legroom. The same cannot be true for the back row, which is quite tight. It would not be comfortable for tall folks to stay in for an extended period of time.
All trims feature with a 7-inch touchscreen display and a 6-speaker system for entertainment. At this budget point, the system is adequate, with a usual low-resolution screen. All of the physical controls are conveniently located near the driver, which is a plus. A 7-inch driver-assist display is standard on higher trim levels, and it displays a variety of vehicle-related data.
The following are some of the interior highlights:
Leather steering wheel with tilt and telescopic functions
Front chairs that can be adjusted manually
Climate control that is automated
Upholstery made of cloth
Keyless access through proximity
Start the engine remotely
6-speaker stereo 7-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay Radio via satellite
The Japanese sedan's engine is a 1.6L inline-4 that produces 122 horsepower and 114 poundfeet of torque, which are both low numbers. This is due to Nissan's concentration on efficiency rather than power. The engine comes standard with a five-speed manual transmission, although a CVT may be added as an option. This CVT is not as horrible as some may believe. The power is sent to the front wheels.
For a vehicle in this price range, handling is adequate. The steering is light and sloppy, but the body roll is maintained to a minimal as you through the curves. The ride quality of the Versa is excellent; it provides the most pleasant ride for its occupants. Given the Versa's ride quality, we can overlook the areas where it falls short, especially given its low price.
On the highway, the engine does not rev very high and does not provide an exciting sensation.
From a stop, it takes 9.8 seconds to reach 60 miles per hour, while the quarter-mile drag takes 17.4 seconds. Although braking is unreliable, putting the foot to the metal provides a brief high that quickly fades. When attempting to stop from 60 miles per hour, a braking distance of 124 feet is reached.
We anticipate the same safety ratings for the 2022 model. At this pricing range, Nissan shocks us by including a slew of standard active safety systems that we wouldn't anticipate from a budget car. Nissan's Safety Shield 360 comes standard on SV and above trim levels, and it's rather amazing. The following are some of the active driver-assist features:
Pedestrian detection and automatic emergency braking
Warning for lane deviation Warning: there is a blind area. camera in the rearview mirror
collision warning in the forward direction
Driver attentiveness monitor Rear cross-traffic alert
Cruise control that adapts to the situation
High-beam help on the fly
Automatic braking in reverse
