Today, Nissan threw down the small car gauntlet when it announced the release of the new, bargain-priced 2009 Nissan Versa 1.6 into the U.S. market. Scheduled to go on sale November 18, the 2009 Nissan Versa 1.6 will be priced to start at $9,990, officially earning it the distinction as the most inexpensive new car currently available in the United States. That 10k price tag does not include those ominous “dealership” and “handling” fees, however, but as long as you’ve mastered the fine art of negotiation and/or advanced hand-to-hand combat, you should be able to sign off on an ’09 Versa 1.6 that’s well within the $9,990 range. As a word of caution, though, should you find it necessary to resort to aggravated assault when haggling with the Nissan dealer, it is not recommended that your escape plan rely heavily on your newly acquired Versa 1.6 inasmuch the 107 horsepower, 1.6L 4-cylinder engine is not likely to be much help in putting distance between you and the pursing 5-0.
On the bright side, both the standard 5-speed manual and optional 4-speed automatic transmission configurations available on the ’09 Nissan Versa 1.6 feature a fuel consumption average of 26 mpg city/33-34 mpg hwy. So when you appear in court for your arraignment, you can point out to the presiding judge that yes, while it might have required both an airborne assault and the liberal use of spike strips to bring you into custody, you have shown an acute responsibility for conserving the environment by attempting to decrease your carbon footprint.
