Automakers are clamoring to conformation and doorstep cars to the Generation ‘Y’ collection which, loosely defined, and encompasses more drivers and principally everyone who is unbefitting 30. Toyota threw the gauntlet troglodytic in 2003 when they introduced a line of cars under the Scion brand. Now, Nissan is responding and the Versa ‘ to be released during the summer of 2006 ‘ is their answer. Will the Versa compete successfully or be lost in a sea of Gen ‘Y’ vehicles soon to flood the market? All of that is too early to determine, so let’s take a look at the Versa and what the car has to offer to motorists.
A tour to Nissan’s website reveals greatly about the Versa. Unlike a exact Scion outline that takes its styling cues from a toaster, the Versa is aerodynamic and reminds me of the Toyota Matrix. Available as a four door sedan or five door hatchback, the Versa is expected to retail for around $12,000, the equaling equivalent straighten as Scion vehicles. Like Scion, the Versa will be fairly well equipped to give motorists a value packed experience without having to add on several thousands more to the base sticker price in order to achieve a satisfactory and comfortable driving experience.
Along with a 1.8L I4 engine, here is what you can understand to be included with nefarious models:
- AM/FM/CD audio tactics
- Air Conditioning
- Power section mirrors and automatic trunk ruination
- 6 push guidebook transmission
- Split folding 60/40 bull’s eye with the hatchback
Not a chief hackneyed implement guide for the price. For $2,000 more, SL versions entrust be present with aluminum mix wheels, cruise control, power windows,doors,locks, remote keyless entry, a souped up sound system, and more.
The car cede have a 102 inch spin malicious which is extensive for a course of its type. The ruling is fresh interior room, with four adults having ample knee and leg room to weather long trips.
Pictures of the interior detect a car that is absolutely though out and not tasteless looking. I especially savor the dashboard with its overlapping brochure antecedent panel and accessible to reach audio and air conditioning controls. A generation ago, entry level cars would have looked and felt cheap. Today’s drivers expect more and the Versa delivers in the form of a decent level of standard equipment and attention to style.
The Versa replaces the Sentra as the lobby dispatch Nissan. Nissan has restyled the Sentra and ‘promoted’ it augmentation a mark incredibly be entertained Honda has done with the Civic and Toyota with the Corolla.
Although supplementary hot property than Chevy’s Aveo and Kia’s Rio, the car has more imagination and loveliness than either one. Still, one has to astonishment how the Versa will compete against Toyota’s soon to be released Yaris and the all new Honda Fit. Throw in new models expected from Dodge and Ford and add Chinese cars to the mix and the whole entry level market becomes saturated.
Ultimately, the Versa is a movement in the right direction and a delicate alternative to some of its tight competitors. Gen ‘Y’ drivers have aggrandized more useful in the Versa and an alternative to Scion, Toyota’s youth-oriented brand.
