Versa is a Good Value for Your Money

The 2008 Nissan Versa represents a dynamic alternative to current entry-level hatchbacks and sedans. Built on Nissan€s proven B-platform, the stylish Versa offers a spacious cabin with best-in-class head and rear leg room, a high quality interior and a comfortable, stress-free environment. Every 2008 Versa is powered by a standard 122-horsepower 1.8-liter DOHC 4-cylinder engine and a choice of three transmissions.
The front-wheel drive Versa is available in two body styles, a 5-door hatchback and 4-door sedan, and each in two well-equipped models, S and SL. The Versa hatchback and sedan models offer a long list of standard and available equipment, including available Intelligent Key, Bluetooth Hands-free Phone System, satellite radio and an audio system with Clarion speakers and high-powered subwoofer.

In Versa, Nissan€s design and engineering teams found a way to fit a large interior in a small car. Interior length, front to back, is more than six feet. Both the Versa Hatchback and Versa Sedan have large cargo areas, ideal for owners with highly active lives.

€The €versatile space€ provided by the roomy interior and cargo area is reflected in the vehicle€s name, Versa,€ said Bill Bosley, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division €Versa has the longest front-to-back cabin in its class, with plenty of leg room both up front and in the back seat simultaneously. Plus there€s no need to be sliding the front seats forward every time there are more than two people in the car.€

Versa has received the highest possible ratings in both government National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

€Versa allows price-conscious consumers to have it all in one attractive, affordable package €" roominess, comfort, style, performance, fuel efficiency and high quality,€ said Bosley. €Versa also opens up the Nissan dealer shopping and service experience to a wide range of consumers who may have only previously dreamed about owning a Nissan.€

The manufacturer€s suggested retail price is $9,990. The 2008 Nissan Sedona offers 26 miles per gallon (mpg) in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. Great buy during these hard times!
