Why's that, good design is a one-off cost that doesn't have to be passed on to the end consumer. Just look at Hyundai and Kia today, even the latest Fords.I like it but if Nissan recently revamped the Versa for 2012, what makes us think they'll be quick to change their recently revamped design? Just a thought.
What I also like about the Versa is the price point. I picked up a used 2011 HB with 34k miles for less than $10k. I'm afraid if a new Versa is going to be produced like the one pictured as the concept vehicle, that's going to be a $20k+ vehicle easily.
