    Is the new Versa going to compete with the Mazda 3 or is the new Sentra going to compete with it? Many people are saying that the Mazda 3 is currently the benchmark for vehicles in that class. It looks like a tight little car too.

    I wonder why Nissan didn't improve on their multi-link beam suspension. Hopefully the Versa will ride nicely.

    The Versa will not compete with the Mazda3. The 3 is in the Sentras class. Yeah I think the 3 is the benchmark and I hope Nissan can top or atleast match it. The Versa will slot below the Sentra.

    "The Versa will slot below the Sentra."

    Right, in the subcompact class that will soon be occupied by the Honda Fit and Toyota Yaris.

    Try saying "Yaris" ten times flat.

    isn't that a form of canabalism? i mean competing with yourself?

    well - are they any owners out there for this little compact?

    ack.. have a versa forum is like having a regular neon forum bunched up close with the srt4 which they try to disassociate themselves with. Not a desirable car, IMO.

    Mazda 3 a Benchmark? really?
    I had one as a rental for 3 days and I was shocked that it didn't rattle itself to peices by the end of that period. There is VW stiff and there is unforgiving peice of crap stiff. The 3 suffers from the latter.
    I love a firm ride. When the 03FX came out I thought the sport package's ride was spot on. I honestly hope no one thats owns a Mazda 3 gets a hemorrhoid the effects would be brutal.
    I think the Sentra has a hell of alot more to worry about from the car that just replaced the civic and nabbed it's name (It's the size of a early 90's accord). Lately Nissans seems to be getting bigger every redesign so odds are the Sentra will increase in size to compete with it's segment and seperate it further from the Versa.
    As far as the Versa I think it's about time Nissan came out with a car for people who would typically have to embarass themselves by driving a Aveo, Rio, or (*insert shriner car here*). Just cause your not rich shouldn't mean you have to drive a POS.

    I'm glad Nissan is bringing this out. The hatch looks pretty good and they seem to be pricing it right.

    you can build one at: www.nissanusa.com .Pricing isn't official, but it should give you an idea.

    The hatchback should be out May 2006 and the sedan should be out sometime between Fall 06 and Winter 07(Nissan didn't give a Month for it).

    I realize the Nissan community isn't nearly as interested in the Versa as the new Sentra, but I think this car has real potential for success.. It is one of the 10 best selling cars in Japan right now and will be going head to head with the Honda Fit and Toyota Yaris. For the same price the Versa is a substantially larger and more powerfull than its competitors. The nissan site is quoting 38mpg average of city and highway. If this turns out to be the the final EPA number, it would be more fuel efficient than both the honda and toyota.
    This car would be replacing my 11 year old beater neon. I want base hatch, 6 speed manual in white. I can take care of stereo and wheels later. The only option I need is side airbags and abs. For longer trips I have a large, very quick old Volvo that takes care of my other driving urges. This would just a around town car. Maybe by early next year when the discounts start kicking i'll be in the market... if something else doesn't catch my attention first.

    A couple of question:
    Can the rear seat be removed from the car for larger items or is it just the seat back for fold down?
    What kind of build quality can we expect from the Mexico facotory as opposted to other Nissan plants?

    Lost of unofficial tiida pics here. Its on in Japanese so just click on the links with 1, 2, 3, 4.

    IMHO the official US Versa press release pics were terrible. Silver was a bad choice.
