Two thousand and seven Machine Versa: Gen Y, Take Notice!

Automakers are clamoring to create and industry automobiles towards the Generation "Y" crowd which, loosely defined, and encompasses new drivers and largely everyone who's below 30. Toyota threw the gauntlet down in 2003 when they introduced a line of cars below the Scion brand. Now, Nissan is responding as well as the Versa - to be released during the summer of 2006 - is their answer. Will the Versa compete successfully or be lost in a sea of Gen "Y" vehicles soon to flood the marketplace? All of that's too early to determine, so let's have a look at the Versa and what the car has to give to motorists.

A check out to Nissan's site reveals substantially about the Versa. In contrast to a certain Scion car that takes its styling cues from a toaster, the Versa is aerodynamic and reminds me of the Toyota Matrix. Out there as a 4 door sedan or 5 door hatchback, the Versa is expected to retail for around $12,000, precisely the same price range as Scion autos. Like Scion, the Versa will probably be pretty properly equipped to give motorists a value packed expertise devoid of getting to add on a variety of thousands more to the base sticker value in order to reach a satisfactory and comfy driving experience.

Along with a 1.8L I4 engine, here is what you are able to count on to be included with base models:

AM/FM/CD audio method

Air Conditioning

Power side mirrors and automatic trunk release

6 speed manual transmission [4 speed automatic is optional]

Split folding 60/40 seat together with the hatchback

Not a poor regular gear list for the price tag. For $2,000 far more, SL versions will come with aluminum alloy wheels, cruise control, energy windows/doors/locks, remote keyless
