2013 Nissan Versa Safety

6.0
Safety

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).

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

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.
