Nissan offers three stylish and affordable sedans in the $10,000 to $25,000 price range – the Nissan Versa, Altima and Sentra. The starting MSRP on the 2015 Nissan Versa S comes in at just under $12,000, which makes it an excellent entry vehicle into the Nissan sedan lineup.
2015 Nissan Versa
The 2015 Nissan Versa features the most rear legroom in its class. With a chrome grille and efficient exterior aerodynamics, the Nissan Versa blends functionality with aesthetics in a way that most sedans under $15,000 can’t justifiably claim.
The distance between the seat and ceiling of the Versa is just under 40 inches which makes the Nissan Versa a compact sedan with very ample interior space. Even passengers in the backseat benefit from the added legroom and headroom of a roomier cabin.
You’re going to feel a quicker response with the Nissan Versa because the engine components have been micro-finished. The way the Nissan Versa engine is furnished you’re also going to get better gas mileage – to the tune of 31 miles per gallon (MPG) in the city and 40 highway MPG with the Nissan Versa S Plus and SV. By the way, the Nissan Versa S Plus and SV are still affordably priced, and each comes in at around $14,000 and $15,500 starting MSRP, respectively.
Blue tooth, cruise control and a trip computer with USB plug-in capabilities are all standard with the Nissan Versa SV. The S, S Plus and SV all pack 109 horsepower into a basic five seat, four door sedan setup. With Nissan’s “pure drive” and fuel injection you’ll save money at the pump as well – with 40 highway MPG, you’ll potentially save thousands every year on gas and only need to fill up potentially every 400 miles!
2014 Nissan Altima
The Nissan Altima sedan 2.5, 2.5 S and 2.5 SV are all priced under $25,000. Each car gets 27 MPG in the city and 38 MPG on the highways. You’re not sacrificing power to get this great MPG profile, though – the Nissan Altima sedan is powered by a 182-horsepower engine.
The 2.5 in the 2014 Nissan Altima title stands for a 2.5 liter engine. The interior is just as attractive as the exterior too. The Nissan Altima comes with ample headroom and legroom and is leather available. With forty inches of front headroom and a whopping 45 inches of legroom for passengers in the back, the Nissan Altima outperforms both the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry.
The Altima is incredibly safe as well. In terms of blind spot detection, moving object detection and lane departure warnings, the Nissan Altima has technology to keep you and your family safe for years to come. By comparison, the Hyundai Sonata only covers one of the three pieces of safety technology covered above. The Nissan Altima sedan has blind spot detection and other safety features that simply outperform the competition.
2014 Nissan Altima sedans come with NissanConnect. This is an entertainment service with a dizzying amount of apps. You can keep tabs of your Facebook friends, play your favorite records or even check the weather all with NissanConnect.
2014 Nissan Sentra
The starting MSRP for the Nissan Sentra S is just under $16,000 ($15,990). The Nissan Sentra FE+S and SV come in with starting MSRPs of $17,240 and $17,540, respectively.
With a 1.8 liter, 130-horsepower engine, you’re getting quite a bang for your buck. The 40 highway MPG in the 2014 Nissan Sentra FE+S is also very competitive.
The Nissan Sentra features a quiet, roomy cabin as well as leather-available, plush seats. Bose premium audio is standard.
