At the Tortuga Music Festival in Ft. Lauderdale Florida yesterday, Nissan unveiled the all-new 2020 Nissan Versa.
Nissan packed technology usually reserved for higher end cars into the low-cost Versa including Nissan's Safety Shield 360. Safety Shield 360 includes:
- Nissan Intelligent Mobility that helps provide front, side and rear safety monitoring and intervention technologies.
- Standard safety features include Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
- Rear Automatic Braking
- Lane Departure Warning
- High Beam Assist
Available equipment includes Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Intelligent Driver Alertness and Intelligent Cruise Control.
The exterior has been refreshed to look like a smaller version of the Nissan Altima with Nissan's V-Motion grille and a rear floating roof. The interior has been greatly upgraded. Inside, Nissan took styling elements from the Nissan Maxima. Heated front seats, push button start, Automatic Climate Control, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also available.
Under the hood is a 1.6 liter 4-cylinder producing 122 horsepower and 114 lb-ft of torque with either a CVT or 5-speed manual.
No word yet on pricing, but the Nissan Versa is one of the least expensive vehicles available in the U.S.... that it packs this much technology into an inexpensive package will make it a killer value if Nissan can hold the line on pricing.
