2012 Nissan Versa Sedan [w/video]

What Are You Willing To Sacrifice For A Low Price? The compact car market is white-hot.

    Detroit: 2014 Nissan Versa Note pushes the little hatchback forward
    1358255400

    Alright, truth time: The Nissan Versa isn't exactly our favorite car in the subcompact class. It's certainly competent, reliable transportation, but it's hardly an emotional purchase choice.
