The 2008 Nissan Versa breaks the bargain mold, in its long list of standard features and its nifty options.
Standard features vary between the two trim (and MSRP) levels of Nissan's 2008 Versa, but even the base 1.8 S is decently equipped. Edmunds writes that "the 1.8 S starts you out with 15-inch steel wheels, air-conditioning, a tilt steering wheel, a four-speaker CD stereo, power mirrors, [and] a split-folding rear seat" that helps aid cargo space. The Nissan Versa 1.8 SL "adds alloy wheels; upgraded cloth upholstery; power windows and locks; cruise control," and "a six-speaker stereo with MP3 playback and an auxiliary input jack," according to Edmunds.
Mother Proof thinks either model is "pretty pimped-out" for "such an economical car."
Optional features on the 2008 Nissan Versa typically come in packages, but they do allow for a decent amount of personalization. ConsumerGuide writes that the available Power Package on the Nissan Versa 1.8 S adds "power windows, power door locks, remote keyless entry," and several other features that are standard on the 1.8 SL, while the SL's available Convenience Package includes a "leather-wrapped steering wheel w/radio controls" and "wireless cell phone link." Among other available features on Nissan's 2008 Versa, you'll find "an Audio Package for SL hatchbacks" that "includes a Rockford Fosgate-powered subwoofer," according to Kelley Blue Book, and "a choice of XM or SIRIUS Satellite Radio, and a moonroof, are linked together as available options on the SL trim level."
