The 2020 Nissan Versa is almost here, and here is why it’s important.

Small cheap cars are rarely hardly anything to get excited over. The only exception is a used sports car and your first car. While most parents will opt to get their child a safe used car for their first vehicle because of the cost, the Nissan Versa offers new car reliability, technology, and safety for user car money. And now the upcoming 2020 Versa is getting even better. Nissan invited me to the 2019 Tortuga Music festival earlier this month to get a quick scoop.

The exterior styling has been improved, but it undoubtedly a Versa. What you won’t see is that the new Nissan Versa is most substantial. The exterior proportions have been stretched in order to give occupants more room in the cabin. Also a new upgraded interior will make you question if this really is the cheapest new car on the market. You can get the current generation Nissan Versa for under $13,000 – pricing hasn’t been released for the new 2020 model year.

What we do know is that the Nissan Versa will arguably be safer than most used cars on the market. That is because it comes standard with a number safety tech and it is available with “Safety Shield 360.” This low cost package delivers automatic emergency braking, high beam assist, rear cross traffic detection with rear automatic breaking, lane departure warning, and blind spot warning. You will be hard pressed to find these safety features on a used car for less than $20,000.

Plus the Nissan Versa comes with a new car warranty!

Visit your local Nissan dealer for more information on the upcoming Versa or stay tuned to Nissan’s social media channels for the full release of specifications and pricing.
