Finding a new car is more challenging than it used to be. Not only that, but cars are more expensive than ever before. However, the 2023 Nissan Versa would like a word. What does the $15,730 2023 Nissan Versa price get buyers? A manual transmission and some Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). However, it is one of the cheapest new subcompact sedans in a dwindling segment.

The 2023 Nissan Versa price will start at $15,730

Nissan announced this week that the 2023 Nissan Versa is back and better than ever. With a refreshed exterior and new logos throughout, the Versa looks as modern as ever. Some of the latest technology on the sedan includes Nissan Safety Shield 360, a suite of standard safety features on all trim levels.

These safety features include Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Warning, and Rear Automatic Braking. High Beam Assist is also standard on the 2023 Versa sedan. Buyers can opt for Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. The 2023 Versa will come with three trim levels: S, SV, and SR. Pricing for the sedan above does not include the shipping fee of $1,095.

When Nissan surveyed buyers recently, more than 53% of respondents said affordability was the biggest concern when it came to selecting a new vehicle. The fuel economy was in second place at 34%. The low starting price of the new Versa gives those buyers looking for affordability an option that many other automakers have ditched in search of higher MSRPs.

What’s new with the 2023 Nissan Versa?

You might think the 2023 Nissan Versa isn’t well equipped for $15,730, but that isn’t the case. It has room for five and even received the best-in-class front legroom and headroom accolades. In the cargo area, 15.0 cubic feet of space await you. The cheapest option does come with a manual transmission and a seven-inch touchscreen.

Buyers who opt for the S Plus will get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, along with 16-inch alloy wheels and a 60/40 split-folding rear seat. The top-of-the-line SR has “sport-inspired interior and exterior design elements,” according to Nissan. That includes a leather-wrapped steering wheel, 17-inch alloy wheels, and heated front seats. It also comes with Intelligent Cruise Control, automatic climate control, and an eight-inch touchscreen.

The 2023 Nissan Versa gets up to 32 mpg city and 40 mpg on the highway, but the Xtronic CVT model gets 35 mpg.

Only three subcompact sedans remain for 2023

After Chevrolet canceled the Spark, Hyundai followed suit with the Accent as well. Now the only subcompact sedans left are the 2023 Kia Rio, the 2023 Mitsubishi Mirage, and the 2023 Nissan Versa.

While the 2023 Nissan Versa might not be perfect for all buyers, it is still a brand-new car for under $20,000. In a time where affordable cars are a thing of the past, Nissan isn’t leaving behind some of its budget-conscious fans.
