You gotta put it into perspective... the Versa's the entry level product in the Nissan lineup. There 2nd generation Versa is on the way. The Juke is a "premium" product that is meant to be take on the Mini Cooper/Clubman and from the specs, it'll certainly thrash it. The Mini is one of my dream cars, but it's absurdly difficult to afford: premium gas, premium insurance rates, $100.00 oil changes through Mini dealers, etc..I had a feeling that it wasnt gonna be worth it. If it was bigger for the expected price range, I might have thought about it. I really like the daring new look that it has. Thats about the only reason why I like it. Cube and versa is still one of there better cars.......
Rob,I think I made a terrible mistake buying the Versa and not waiting another year . I'm assuming the fuel economy with be greater the the versa 1.8 and possibly better the versa 1.6. Having driven a turbo car before I know they get excellent mpg's if driven correctly.
I see no mention anywhere of a non turbo model. I wonder if just the single engine will be available.
Then again my V cost under $12k and this vehicle obviously will be bit more then that. Just the plain fact that it's made in Oppama instead of mexico let's you know quality will be far greater then that of the V as will price.
