Looking for something new, cheap and reliable? Nissan is proud to announce that it has the answer - for the third straight year.
Nissan has just released pricing details for its 2014 Versa sedan, and not only is the sticker price unchanged from 2013 but the car retains the crown of being the cheapest new car in the US for the third straight year. With a base price of just $11,990 (not including a $790 destination charge), buyers are treated to a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that's good for 109 horsepower and 107 lb-ft of torque, mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. This combo delivers 26/35 mpg city/highway.
For those who don't like (or don't know how) to row their own gears, a slushbox is offered as an option which adds $1,000 to the final price tag. A CVT can also be had, but that adds $1,800 to the final price. Standard features include air conditioning, a six-way adjustable driver's seat and an AM/FM/CS aux-in audio system. Basic? Yes. The complete opposite of anything resembling performance and personality? Without question, but the 2014 Nissan Sentra still represents good value for those desiring a brand-new car but are low on funds - and for providing that, we tip our hats to Nissan.
