Sometimes we eat lobster and steak….sometimes burgers…and sometimes Ramen and rice and beans.

If you’re on a “bean budget” right now, well….the Versa’s pretty good beans.

A base Versa bills itself as the lowest-priced new car available at $10,990, but add transportation and an automatic and you’re talkin’ $13,900. Our mid-range Versa SV added a chrome grille, chrome door handles, power locks, windows and mirrors, cruise control, and stickered at $14,870.DSCN1359 300x225 2012 Nissan Versa

So….the Versa doesn’t give you a whole lot of luxury. What does it give you, then?

A new car with a new-car warranty and low new-car financing and economy and space…lots of space, in fact.

You should be able to get your choice of Versa for a little above or below $15,000…have payments of under $300…and have a vehicle that’ll carry four people comfortably just about anywhere while getting 30 to 38 MPG…and out-live your payments by several years. Not a bad deal, really.DSCN1360 150x150 2012 Nissan Versa

And back to “space” for a moment. The Versa has more rear-seat legroom than most luxury cars…and a pretty decent trunk. Four people really could go cross-country in a Versa…and still be on speaking terms when they got there!

Right now, the Nissan is selling the 2012 Versa as a four-door sedan…and is still selling the old body style hatchback…but a new hatch based on the new body style is coming to market in just a few months.
