The 2012 version of Nissan Versa IIHS is ore expensive than the 2011 model with one thousand dollars. The price is justified, because the manufacturer has put in the vehicle additional standard equipment, such as: stability control, six airbags, ABS brakes, electronic break force distribution, standard air conditioning , audio systemr and one feature that can provide more safety and it became a requirement according to federal regulations.
Stability control is a very important feature, because it helps you drivers avoid accidents. The feature works by braking every wheel that loses traction individually. In this way the driver can keep the direction and the speed of the car under control.
The car itself is not expensive and people who see the price for the first time may think that safety features are minimal. It is not true and there is proof: Nissan Versa IIHS has received a Top Safety Pick from the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety). The title represents the highest level of safety performance in the company.
In all testing categories, Nissan Versa IIHS has received the rating “good”. The condition for a car to earn the award is to receive a “good” in rear, side, front and rollover crash tests. The score obtained by the 2012 model is better than the previous model, from 2011, which got only “acceptable” in side impact tests and roof strength verifications. The fuel consumption for the 2012 design has been improved as well.
Even if the new design, Nissan Versa IIHS, is not the most luxury and comfortable car, the improved safety options and its good price, along with the low operation costs can make it a very good choice for you. Actually for the vehicle that is among the cheapest in America, the Top Safety Pick makes it the perfect budget solution.
