Nissan has announced pricing for the new 2012 Nissan Versa, which starts at just $10,990 for the base Versa 1.6 S 5MT. While that may be just a little more than the outgoing Versa, the new entry-level model doesn’t get stripped of important things in 2011 including standard air conditioning, 6-way adjustable driver’s seat, AM/FM/CD/Aux-in audio system.
When compared to its competitors, the 2012 Nissan Versa is the cheapest of the bunch with the Ford Fiesta starting at $13,200, Toyota Yaris starting at $13,155 and the Hyundai Accent starting at $14,195.
The new 2012 Versa Sedan is available in three models – 1.6 S, 1.6 SV and 1.6 SL – and is scheduled to go on sale in early August.
