Nissan's 2018 Versa will retail for at least $12,875, which is nearly unchanged from the past two model years for the subcompact sedan, Nissan has announced. The sedan is on sale now.

The carryover model adds standard adjustable front headrests, map lamps, variable intermittent wipers, and Deep Blue Pearl as an exterior color option.

Nissan will offer the Versa in three trim grades, including S, S Plus, and SV Xtronic. Nissan has eliminated the line-topping SL trim, which also eliminates Nissan's Intelligent Key pushbutton starting.

The Versa 1.6 S 5MT with five-speed manual transmission is the base model. The S Plus adds a continuously variable transmission and retails for $15,015, while the SV retails for $16,605.

The Versa is powered by a 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine that makes 109 horsepower. When equipped with the Xtronic CVT it achieves 39 mpg on the highway and 31 mpg in the city.

The SV Special Edition Package returns for $500 to add 15-inch aluminum alloy wheels, fog lights, a leather-wrapped steering wheel 5.0-inch color display, the RearView Monitor, and SiriusXM radio.

The Versa last received a facelift with the 2015 model year.
