Welcome to Nissan Thousand Oaks, your trusted Nissan dealership located in Thousand Oaks, CA! If you're in the market for a reliable and comfortable subcompact car, the 2022 Nissan Versa is an excellent choice. On this page, we will explore why buying a used 2022 Nissan Versa at Nissan Thousand Oaks is a smart decision. At Nissan Thousand Oaks, our dedication to customer satisfaction and our family-oriented approach are paramount.
Comfort and Fuel Economy
The 2022 Nissan Versa sedan is a fine transportation tool for getting passengers from point A to point B, but it also makes the journey more enjoyable than many other subcompact cars. Not only is the Nissan handsome, it has a price tag that's affordable for almost everyone. While almost everyone will also find its four-cylinder engine to be ill-equipped for prompt highway passes, they should find its highway fuel economy to be impressive. The Versa's smooth ride and cushy front seats make it a relaxing chariot for daily commutes, and it's available with more driver assists than its classmates. Although some of those alternatives are better to drive, the 2022 Versa is a very good little car for folks who care most about comfort and safety.
The price of the 2022 Nissan Versa starts at $16,675 and goes up to $20,085 depending on the trim and options. The top-of-the-line Versa SR is the one to get. Sure, it's the most expensive version, but we think it's worth it for all the enticing standard equipment it provides. Both the SR and the slightly less expensive SV come with an automatic transmission, and their infotainment systems feature Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. However, only the SR gets 17-inch rims, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, LED headlights, passive entry, and remote start. We'd also add the Convenience package for its adaptive cruise control and heated front seats.
Power and Fuel Efficiency
Every Versa is motivated by a 122-hp four-cylinder engine that powers the front wheels. A five-speed manual is the default transmission on base models, but a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) can be had on the S, too. The latter comes standard on the higher SV and SR trim levels. While the Versa feels slow when pulling away from stoplights and during highway-passing situations, its CVT helps prevent coarse noises by mimicking actual gear changes. The Versa we drove had a smooth ride that isolated road imperfections. It also was much better to drive than the version it replaces, providing accurate steering feel and consistent brake-pedal feedback.
The Versa is rated up to 32 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway when equipped with the CVT. The entry-level Versa with the manual has significantly worse figures, with an estimated 27 mpg city and 35 highway. We tested an automatic-equipped Versa on our 75-mph highway fuel-economy route, which is part of our extensive testing regimen, where it earned 40 mpg.

Features and Entertainment
The Versa's interior has been upgraded to match it's stunning new exterior. It uses nice materials throughout and has soft-touch surfaces on the doors and dashboard. While Nissan doesn't offer power-adjustable seats and leather upholstery here, the fanciest model can be had with heated front seats as well as a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. The mid-level SV model unlocks some desirable standard features, such as a driver's-seat-mounted armrest and a digital screen in the gauge cluster, while the top-tier Versa SR brings automatic climate control, passive hands-free entry, remote start, and more. The back seat can comfortably fit two adults but both the Hyundai Accent and Kia Rio have more rear-seat headroom and legroom. The sedan has useful cubbies on its center console, and we managed to fit six carry-on suitcases in its trunk; 17 total with the back seat folded.
The Versa features a standard 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with useful buttons and knobs. However, only the SV and SR trim levels have Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. During our evaluation period, we found that the CarPlay interface responded better to our inputs than the car's normal menus did. Every Versa has three USB ports and voice-command capability, but anyone who wants the ability to listen to SiriusXM satellite radio will have to look higher than the base model.
