The Nissan Versa compact sedan is getting a refresh for 2023, and it’s slated to make its in-person premiere at the Miami Auto Show, October 15th-23rd.

The most noticeable changes to the Versa are upfront, facing the world with a redesigned fascia and grille. In the most basic terms, the new Versa just looks more modern, more attractive and perhaps more aggressive. 

The widened grille gives the impression of a little more width, and the use of chrome ends on each bar creates continuity with the headlights. It’s certainly going to turn more heads, but most of the changes made for ‘23 are those that can’t be so easily seen. For example, the interior can now be outfitted with a wireless charging pad, Wi-Fi hotspot and an 8-inch touchscreen. Even on the entry-level S trim, a new “S Plus” package will add Apple Carplay and Android Auto into the mix, as well as the 60/40 folding rear seats found standard on the SV and SR trims.

As suggested, the Versa will be available in the S, SV and SR trims. Regardless, all grades are powered by a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine, rated at 122 horsepower. The S comes standard with a 5-speed manual transmission, configurable with the SV- and SR-standard Xtronic CVT automatic.

When we tested the Versa in 2020, we concluded it to be a “very nice” experience. It was capable of commuting everyday with efficiency and safety among its priorities. Back then, it also had a very reasonable cost of admission.

Pricing for the 2023 Nissan Versa is yet to be confirmed, but we do know it’ll be on sale this fall.
