Keep reading to learn more about what this sedan can bring to your drives through the St. Louis area.

Nissan Versa Miles per Gallon

The Nissan Versa gets an EPA-estimated miles per gallon rating of 27-31 MPG city and 36-39 MPG highway.1 Where you fall in that range, of course, depends on the powertrain options you choose.

This sedan comes standard with a 1.6L I-4 engine that delivers 109 horsepower and 107 lb-ft of torque. It can be paired with one of two transmissions, each of which manages a different EPA-estimated fuel economy:

  • 5-Speed Manual: 27 MPG city, 36 MPG highway1
  • Xtronic CVT®: 31 MPG city, 39 MPG highway1

While both transmissions are highly efficient, the CVT (continuously variable transmission) gets you slightly farther between fill-ups. This is because the CVT does away with the designated gears of a traditional automatic transmission. Instead, it optimizes performance and efficiency by providing nearly infinite transitions between its lowest and highest points.

Although the CVT is more efficient, the manual transmission offers drivers more control over their shift schedules, so the option that's right for you is completely dependent on your personal preference.

Connectivity in the 2019 Versa

When you're out and about in your 2019 Versa, you'll have many ways to stay connected. A Bluetooth® Hands-Free Phone System comes standard and allows you to wirelessly link your phone with your car. If you get an important call while on-the-go, contact information will appear on the standard 7-inch touchscreen in the center stack.

You can answer the call and chat hands-free, or send a text using the Hands-Free Text Messaging Assistant. This system reads out incoming texts to you and allows you to respond via voice command if your response can't wait.

Apple users can also use voice commands to interact with their phones by activating standard Siri® Eyes Free. For full smartphone connectivity, Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ are also available.

Interior Dimensions

The 2019 Nissan Versa is a compact sedan, making it lithe and maneuverable in crowded parking lots or tight city streets. Still, when you're sitting behind the wheel, it feels very spacious. It may be because of the 41.8 inches of driver legroom and 39.8 inches of front-seat headroom.

Rear-seat passengers will have 37 inches of legroom and 36.6 inches of headroom to stretch out in. In total, there is 90.2 cubic feet of total passenger volume.

Need to bring luggage along? Load up all 14.9 cubic feet of the trunk space. For even more cargo space, the 60/40-split folding rear seats allow you to maximize your interior and find the right balance between passengers and cargo.
