Nissan's littlest offering in the United States, the 2007 Versa, now has some pricing to go along with the buzz its been generating. Starting at just $12,450, the base Versa is powered by a 122-horsepower 1.8-liter DOHC 4-cylinder engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. Buyers will have the option of adding a 4-speed automatic transmission for $800 more.
For high rollers, the Versa 1.8 SL is also available for $14,450 and includes 15-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, six CD changer, auxiliary input jack, remote keyless entry, cruise control with steering wheel controls and a nicer interior. The SL is also available with Nissan's Xtronic CVT for $15,450.
The vehicle, which sports continuously variable transmission (CVT), should get around 30/36 miles per gallon for city and highway driving, respectively.
Full release after the jump.
