Nissan Versa 1.6S Sedan-The Cheapest 2013 Car

By Edited May 11, 2015 1 1

The lowest cost new car for 2013 -- granted is higher than it was for 2012, it also comes better equipped. Here are some details on the 2013 model.

Low Cost

The most appealing aspect of the car is the low-cost. You can get a 1.6S for $11,990. Obviously the higher models of as well as a Hatchback version which tend to be the more desirable car, but they are also more expensive. For the cost of one equipped with all of the goodies you can be looking at the same cost for an entry level model such as the nicer Nissan Sentra. 

Although the 1.6S is a good value, it will not win you any awards from the NASCAR crowd. The car has spongy braking and the high-speed cornering sucks with this car. Of course this car is not designed for high-speed cornering so unless you are driving drunk you should not notice it. Heck, even if you are driving drunk you should still not notice the piss-poor high speed cornering of the Nissan Versa sedan.

The Nissan 1.6 S Sedan is a sub-compact entry-level car. If you take care of it the car will run for over 200,000 miles. That’s the car that will run that long, the interior is shabbily built and will not last as long as the engine. It is not as bad as some of the other entry level car interiors from other car makers though. The Nissan Versa Sedan is not a high-tech and fancy looking car nor does it have a high-tech and fancy interior, but it will get the job done when you are simply looking for a reliable and super-affordable new car.

Power up Big Dog

It is definitely not a workhorse when it comes to pumping out the horses, having only 109 horsepower engine, but that is not entirely bad. It gets a respectable 40mpg estimated mileage on highway miles and 31 miles estimated in town driving. Yes your real world results may be lower, but not by much. The best way to get good gas mileage is to drive conservatively and not ram the gas constantly and the perfect car to do this with is the Nissan Versa. Of course there is a warning here, the best fuel mileage is on the higher models of the Nissan Versa. With the base model you will get an estimated 27 miles per hour in the city and 36 miles per gallon in fuel economy while on the highway. If you are constantly trying to drift into the corners and drag race other cars while you are driving this Nissan car then you are stupid, but you already knew that.

Air Conditioning

You used to have to pay a lot extra because air-conditioning was not available on the cheapest model but with the 2013 Nissan Versa you get air-conditioning with all of the models including the cheapest model. This is great. If you decide to upgrade to a higher model Nissan Versa with a lot of options then you may end up paying more than $17,500 for everything. For that money you might as well but an entry-level Nissan Sentra.

Practical and Affordable

If you are looking for a practical and affordable car then the entry-level models of the Nissan Versa are a great value. You will find this car can handle almost all of your day to day driving and the Nissan Versa works awesome as a daily commuter. The back seat may get cramped if your kids are very big, but it is better than making them riding in the back of a 78 Ford Pinto. When you want the cheapest 2013 automobile then the Nissan Versa is the way to go if you want a new car that is also the cheapest.

A very practical and economical choice for people who need a reliable vehicle and are on a budget. Even if you are not on a budget your money will be spent better elsewhere such as on rental properties as opposed to a new BMW. If you must have a brand new car and you want an economical car then the 2013 is definitely one of the cars you need to look at, especially if you want to buy a cheap car that is reliable and brand new.

The resale value of the Versa is not very high, but this is one of those cars you can buy and by the time you have it paid off you are still able to drive it. This will allow you to continue making your payment but instead place it into savings and then when you do need to replace this car you will already have a sizeable chunk saved up so you can save even more money on interest and financing charges on your next car purchase. If you have bad credit and need new car loan then it is much easier to get a bad credit new car loan with the 1.6S Sedan.

Decades ago I had a Nissan as a second car in the family. I had it for several years and it never gave us any trouble.
