Depends on what your looking for and the model of your vehicle would help you get some ideas specific to your car. Everything from soup to nuts on this forum, with a good amount of solid information regarding repairs and customizing. Good luck with your new car!!!!

Congratulations on the new Versa! I have a 2019 also and for a small car, it is comfortable, gets great gas mileage, avg 34 to 38 mixed city driving, and is fun to drive! I have the S with the manual transmission. Weathertech makes a great set of mats to fit the car as well! Only thing I do not care for on mine is at 65 to 70 MPH, the engine revs a bit high, but I believe that is very normal for these cars. Have fun!

Yes, RPM is too high. 5-th gear is too low.

If car has CVT then treat it with the utmost care.

(edit) Never mind, I see you got the MTX one.

I bought a 2018 Versa S with Continental ProContact tires that were really noisy. I just spent $480 today for Toyo Ultra Z900's all around, and it's much quieter on the highway. I'm happy I did that. If you have the Conti's, you might consider replacing them.

You would change still viable tires simply over noise? They better be quiet at that price, that's some 30% more than I typically pay.

Versa, being the crap car doesn't use as much sound deadening method (undercoating, strut cush, carpet insulation, etc.) as the rest of Nissan cars do anyway. They are loud even when they are quiet.

I've noticed the noise in my Versa being higher than in my Ford Escort. It's not bad up to about 50MPH but from 50-55MPH it sounds like the noise at least doubles. It doesn't really bother me since this car is going to be used for short trip local driving where my speed usually consists of speeds in the 45-55MPH range. The Versa is louder at 55MPH than my '97 Escort wagon at 90MPH. I'm not sure I could stand the road noise at 70-75MPH for 8-10 hours like most of my road trips are. The difference in road noise really surprised me considering the Escort was Ford's economy level car.
