Nissan is lowering the price of its 2016 Versa sedan, which will now start at $11,990 for the fleet-favorite Versa S with a 5-speed manual transmission. The S and SL grade have been reduced by $500.

The 2016 Versa sedan is available in four grades, including S (5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic), S Plus (Xtronic CVT), SV (Xtronic CVT) and SL (Xtronic CVT).

The Versa’s standard 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine includes a range of fuel efficiency-enhancing technologies, such as a dual fuel injector system and a twin Continuously Variable valve Timing Control System (CVTCS) mounted on both intake and exhaust camshafts. The engine is rated at 109 horsepower and 107 lb.-ft. of torque.
