Efficiency Meets Performance in the Nissan Versa

Those seeking a thrilling and responsive daily driver will appreciate the peppy 122-horsepower 1.6L engine under the hood of the 2021 Nissan Versa. It pairs with a 5-speed manual transmission for extra engagement.

To get you from Point A to Point B stop-free, this sporty sedan achieves an impressive EPA-estimated 32 city/40 highway MPG when equipped with the available Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission).1

Cozy Cabin With Plenty of Cargo & Convenience

Inside the 2021 Nissan Versa, you can fit up to five passengers, plus their belongings, thanks to the 15 cubic feet of available cargo room. Optional 60/40-split fold-down rear seatbacks enable you to configure the cabin to accommodate larger items like luggage, along with a passenger.

Tech-wise, you will find a standard 7-inch touch-screen display and three optional USB ports to ensure you and all your friends can stay connected and charged while on the go. Thanks to available Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration, you can respond to texts, answer calls, and access your favorite apps too.

The optional Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant can even read your texts aloud. Plus, it makes it easy to answer using voice-recognition technology or by sending pre-populated responses.

Once you arrive at your destination or back home, the available Follow Me Home Headlights will continue to shed light on the area around your car. Simply click the turn signal before stepping out of your Nissan Versa and the headlights will remain on for a short period, giving you time to reach the door.

Active Safety & Driver Assistance in the Nissan Versa

To better ensure the safety of you and your passengers, the 2021 Nissan Versa comes standard with an array of driver-assist features, including:

  • Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Rear Automatic Braking
  • High Beam Assist

These features work together to boost your awareness and provide additional backup when you need it most. With this safety suite onboard, every ride becomes both more enjoyable and secure.

A Blind Spot Warning is also available and comes with LED turn signal indicators on the outside mirrors for added convenience. When another driver appears in your blind spot, this feature alerts you to stay safely in your lane until the coast is clear. 

Another useful feature is the optional Intelligent Driver Alertness. It monitors your driving patterns and if it senses signs of fatigue or drowsiness, it prompts you with a suggestion to take a break. The alert includes a chime and a coffee cup icon that appears on your dashboard.
