Serving Hinesville, GA

Each year, most automakers make minor changes to keep their vehicles competitive. In 2020, however, Nissan pulls out all the stops with the Versa. This year, the Versa gets a much-needed makeover. The Versa is still Nissan's smallest sedan, but it's one with a big personality. The 2020 Versa gets refreshed styling on the outside and the addition of more standard features, including some class-exclusive amenities.

Along with all the standard creature comforts it offers, there are plenty of optional items, too. The addition of these new features means that although the Versa is no longer the least expensive sedan in the United States, it's a top contender for the best value. Safety and technology are top priorities in the Versa this year, which features more standard driver-assist aids than before. Compared to the 2018 model, the 2019 Versa got trim-specific changes to the SV Special Edition, but no other significant differences across the board.

The 2020 Nissan Versa is powered by a 1.6L engine with four cylinders. This engine produces up to 122 HP.

Features

The Nissan Versa is designed to turn heads, but it's also designed to keep you comfortable and entertained. Despite its small size, the Versa stands out for its exceptionally spacious cabin.

Multiple USB ports are on hand for fast and convenient charging. As for safety, the Versa features ten airbags throughout the cabin, which is more than you'll find in most vehicles.
