Expert Quotes:

small, unassuming exterior
The Auto Channel

Versa's sheet metal -- with its inoffensive curves and meek snub nose -- is nondescript, but in its favor, it doesn't look ultra-cheap.

Versa interiors use lots of hard plastic, but the materials are attractive and pleasant for the price.
Consumer Guide

Visually, it's what you'd expect a small hatch to look like

A slab of wood-grain trim is also available on the SL hatch.
Car and Driver

The 2011 Nissan Versa is offered in two different body styles, a four-door sedan and five-door hatchback. As a hatchback, the Versa looks considerably more elegant and complete as a design, with the gently curved roofline and kicked-up back pillar. Versa sedans look a little tall and homely, and the proportions don't work out as well. From the back, hatchbacks are helped out a bit with their swoop

Inside, the Versa makes no claims of being upscale; it's a no-frills device but cleanly designed, with an upright, squared-off instrument panel that's refreshingly simple. While all models share the same interior design, they vary quite dramatically from 1.6 Base models up to top 1.8 SL models, with dull plastics and plenty of spacers and blanks replaced by mate-metallic trims and upgraded surfaces. As they should, we suppose, as top SLs can cost nearly twice as much as the entry model.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
