Versa Sedan: Top Safety Pick
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 Versa Sedan was just redesigned this past year, with an all-new body structure. Yet it hasn't returned safety ratings that are much better than those of the previous model.

Looking at the Nissan Versa's safety ratings from the two U.S. test agencies is confusing, to say the least. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gives the Versa Sedan top ratings in all categories, as well as the Top Safety Pick designation. Meanwhile it earns just three stars for frontal impact from the federal government (with four stars for side impact and overall).

With roof-mounted side airbags covering all outboard occupants, plus standard electronic stability control and front side-impact torso airbags, all the basic small-car safety bases are covered.

Conclusion

Simply put, you could do better than the 2013 Versa if safety if your priority.

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.
