If you have $10,000 to spend on a car and live in Boston, you may have been thinking you’d buy a pre-owned vehicle. That’s certainly one choice, and if you find the right car it can be a great choice. Pre-owned doesn’t necessarily mean problematic, as many people trade their cars in for a newer model simply because they’re ready for a new car.
You may be surprised, though, to find out that you can actually buy a brand new Nissan in Boston for under $10,000, after manufacturer’s rebate.
If you haven’t already checked out the 2012 Nissan Versa hatchback, now is a great time to take a look. With a price that can’t be beat, the Versa also offers features you’d expect on a much pricier vehicle. After all, it is a Nissan.
The first thing you should know about the Versa is that it seats five comfortably and has the most rear leg room in its class. With available 60/40 split fold seats, it holds cargo just as well as people. It also features handy storage compartments to make sure all five of you have room for your stuff while cruising around Boston.
The good stuff is not all on the inside. The Versa features Nissan’s Continuously Variable Transmission for smooth automatic shifting and Nissan’s standard Brake Override Technology.
You may wonder about safety in a compact hatchback, but with the Nissan Versa you’re covered. With six standard air bags, the Versa protects everyone in the vehicle in case of a collision. The Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) system helps keep you on path when over steering or under steering. Available ABS makes braking more efficient. Electronic Break Force Distribution adjusts the brake proportioning based on the weight in the vehicle. Brake Assist applies maximum power for braking.
How does it drive, you’re wondering? Like a dream, matching mileage of up to 34 miles per gallon, or 400 miles on a tank, with 122 horsepower and surprising torque to make for the ultimate driving experience under $10,000.
