Howdy all. I am waiting (somewhat impatiently) for my new Magnetic Gray SL, with CVT and Sport Package.

I'm 6' 2" and long in the torso, so the Versa was a real breath of fresh air after the crowded cockpits of the Honda Fit, Ford Fiesta, etc. Speaking of fresh air, I'm normally not impressed by the feeling provided by a sunroof, but for some reason the Versa gives me a lesser version of the irrational grin I get from driving a Smart Cabriolet with the top down.

hi steve, pick up your V yet? i have MG SL too, 2008 w stick. I'm 6ft1, long in the neck, and very much appreciate my spacious versatile V! I wish the steering response wasn't quite so "comfortable", but it's certainly very comfy for an entry level product.
We go to London/Byron a few times a year to see doctor/specialist, so we appreciate the V for these trips. Enjoy NVF! 08v

Welcome!

You are not to far away from a few of us on here, you should try and make it to a meet. We are always looking for more Versa's to attend ...

The sunroof definitely adds some headroom to the Versa ... makes it feel much bigger inside! I use mine all year round!

When do you get to pick up the new Versa?

Welcome, you shouldnt have any issues fitting in the Versa since you already test drove if you're a lanky guy. Make sure you don't hit your head, lol

If I didn't have any trouble fitting in the V I'm sure you didn't either, 6'-6" here and I still got plenty of room every which way =)

Had the new car for a month now, and I still can't wipe the grin off my face. This car is absolutely epic!

I'm liking the CVT more with each passing day, and this is possibly the most relaxing highway cruiser I've ever had. A perfect compromise between the overdone, floaty feeling of a land barge like my '78 Buick Estate Wagon, and the jiggly ride of a real pocket rocket like my '80 Civic HB slalom car.

I miss the trunk space of my trade-in (2002 Honda CR-V), but I've been surprised at how much music gear I can cram into this thing, without having to drop the back seat.

Initially, I thought that when I had some extra cash, I would like to put the Nismo suspension kit on it. But after noticing the way the chin spoiler catches on some of my friends' driveways, I think I'll give it a pass. Perhaps I'll try some aftermarket shocks, when the stock ones get long in the tooth...

Glad to hear you are enjoying it!

You are somewhat close to Woodstock. There is a show on Sunday that I will be showing Kit at. You should definitely check it out! Two Versa's will be in it.
