2021 Nissan Versa in RI for Sale in Warwick, RI
The 2021 Nissan Versa is an inexpensive yet stylish subcompact sedan that’s ideal for drivers on a budget. Some of its high points include ample cargo space that can accommodate a few suitcases for a weekend getaway, standard technologies that are sure to keep you entertained on the road, and a broad slate of standard active safety features that you don’t typically see in the subcompact sedan class. To top it off, fuel economy with the ’21 Versa is excellent, so in addition to its already stellar value, you’ll save plenty of cash from infrequent trips to the gas station.
Trims and Powertrain
The front-wheel-drive ’21 Versa is offered in three trim levels, the S, SV, and SR, and each gets a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 122 hp. A five-speed manual transmission is standard on the S, but a continuously variable transmission (CVT) is available on that trim and standard on the SV and SR. Based on EPA estimates, the 2021 Versa with the manual tranny returns 27 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway while those with the CVT get 32 mpg city/40 mpg highway – meaning that this gasoline-only car reaches fuel efficiency numbers you’d expect from a hybrid.
Comfort and Convenience
The S receives automatic on/off headlights, power-adjustable side mirrors, power windows with driver’s one-touch auto-up/down, keyless entry, push-button ignition, a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, a 12-volt DC power outlet, three USB ports, cloth seats, and a rearview camera. The SV adds heated side mirrors with LED turn-signal indicators, a 60/40 split fold-down rear seatback, and premium cloth seat trim. The SR comes with LED headlights, fog lights, Nissan Intelligent Key (which unlocks and locks the doors without the use of the key fob), remote start, a driver’s seat-mounted armrest, sport cloth seat trim, simulated-leather (Prima-Tex) dash trim, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. Three features are available for the SR: automatic climate control, remote start with automatic climate control functionality, and heated front seats.
Safety and Technology
For a car of this size and class, the Versa is equipped with a surprising number of standard driver-assist features via Nissan Safety Shield 360. The S gets forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, rear automatic braking, lane departure warning, and automatic high beams. The SV and SR are upgraded with blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, a driver attention system, and rear door alert. The SR is eligible for adaptive cruise control.
The S gets the base infotainment system, which has a 7-inch touchscreen, voice recognition, a hands-free text messaging assistant, a four-speaker audio system, and Bluetooth capability. The SV adds Apple CarPlay and Android Auto (Google Assistant is provided with Android Auto), plus satellite radio. The SR gets an additional pair of speakers for the audio system.
