If you nurture a soft corner for the brand Nissan because of the quality of performance and luxury it always ensures, then the 2019 year model of its flagship model Versa can appeal to you in the most amazing ways. Till now, it is one of the cheapest vehicles from the Nissan brand that mugs up all the goodness of the latest features you must have heard about. Moreover, not many cars with this solid a brand name on it will offer a three-year warranty at such a rock-bottom price tag.
All the auto dealerships near SLO who are selling Nissan models are now busy to attend to customers who are mostly crowding around the new 2019 Versa model, and we too found ourselves among them after knowing what it packs inside. After our test drive with this 2019 Versa, we zeroed down to this model as our next car purchase, and we would like to know your answer, after you are done with reading our experience that we are sharing below:
The Power Options and Fuel Efficiency
Every trim level of the 2019 Nissan Versa is given a standard 1.6-liter inline-4 rated engine, that can claim a 109 of horsepower when paired to the 5-speed manual transmission. This combination of engine and transmission is made standard for all the sedan models, but Nissan is lenient at the same time for providing an option to choose a continuously variable transmission (CVT) for those who seek it seriously.
Most trim models of the 2019 Nissan Versa sedans as well as the 2019 Nissan Versa Note hatchbacks are given a continuously variable transmission (CVT) to mate with the 1.6-liter inline-4 rated engine. The powertrain makes a good effort in the EPA rating that counts 31 mpg in the city drives, 39 mpg on the highway, and 34 mpg when both the drives are combined.
But if you drive with the 5-speed manual transmission that is mostly installed on the base Versa sedan model, the fuel economy rates will most likely drop to the figures counting 27, 36 and 30 mpg consecutively for the city, highway and combined drives.
Overall the 2019 year model of the Nissan Versa leaves an impression of a soft, and reasonably controlled ride. Though for some drivers the Acceleration might appear to be leisurely, it works at best when driven around the town. On the highways and on a wide-open road the tall bodied will make you feel at control with the immediately responsive steering that knows how to manage a vehicle whose curb weight is about 2,450 pounds.
The SLO area auto dealer of Nissan where we took our first test drive with the 2019 Nissan Versa, gave us a memory of a ride that was truly well-sorted with plenty of wheel travel left at your disposal. For those who are looking for a vehicle from a trusted brand like Nissan that can ride equally well on both rough urban pavement and on pockmarked off roads, the 2019 Versa can always make a good choice, if not the best.
