Stop by Sansone Jr.’s 66 Automall to test drive Kelley Blue Book’s 2016 5-Year Cost to Own award winner, the Nissan Versa. The Versa won this award, in its fifth year, for the subcompact car category. The award, as its title suggests, tells consumers which new vehicles have the lowest projected cost of ownership. Factors that are taken into consideration include expected fuel costs, depreciation, maintenance and repair costs, finance and insurance fees and state fees.
When most people buy a vehicle, they consider the up front costs – what it costs to buy or lease a vehicle; and they may even consider fuel economy. However, many do not consider the total five-year cost of ownership. If vehicles are compared properly, a more expensive vehicle could actually be less expensive over time.
For 2016, the Versa Sedan and the Versa Note received new enhancements, according to Michael Bruce, the vice president of Product Planing, Nissan North America, Inc. The vehicle is roomy and features mid-size conveniences without the mid-size price. The 1.6-liter engine features twin continuously variable valve timing and a dual fuel injector system to help with fuel economy. The engine puts out 109 horsepower and makes 107 pound-feet of torque, giving it plenty of power so as not to be sluggish, yet not a ton of power that sucks up the fuel.
If the vehicle is fitted with the Xtronic transmission, it gets 31 mpg* in the city and 40 mpg* on the highway. If the vehicle is fitted with the five-speed manual transmission, it gets 27 mpg* in the city and 36 mpg* on the highway. And, if it is fitted with the four-speed automatic transmission, it gets 26 mpg* in the city and 36 mpg* on the highway.
Choose from four trim levels: the S, S Plus, SV and the SL. The S trim level features the five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission. The rest of the trim levels only offer the Xtronic transmission.
