SAFETY | 6 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

Versa Sedan: Four stars overall, three stars frontal, four stars side Versa Hatchback: Not rated overall; three stars frontal
NHTSA

Versa Sedan: Not yet rated Versa Hatchback: 'Good,' frontal; 'acceptable,' side impact; 'acceptable,' roof strength; 'good,' rear impact
IIHS

Easy to see what's behind and to the sides. Thick rear roof pillars compromise that just a bit, but the car still ranks high in see-out-ability.
USA Today



The previous-generation Versa--still represented by the carry-over Versa Hatchback for 2012--was never a standout for safety, according to crash-test ratings, and the same appears to be true, so far, for the all-new Versa Sedan.

The Versa Hatchback gets just three- and four-star ratings from the federal government, with 'acceptable' ratings from the IIHS in side impact and roof strength and 'good' in frontal impact. Roof-mounted side airbags cover all outboard occupants, and front side-impact torso airbags and electronic stability control are standard.

While the 2012 Versa Sedan hasn't yet been rated by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the 2012 Versa hatchback achieves a 'good' rating for frontal impact but only 'acceptable' ratings for side impact and (rollover-related) roof strength.

Conclusion

If safety is your priority, you could probably do a bit better than the 2012 Versa.

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.
