Many times a subcompact is a buyer’s compromise choice, sacrificing some mid-sized space and amenities for a lower MSRP and better fuel economy. That can mean the small car gets “ridden hard and put away wet” as they termed harsh use in the horse-and-buggy era. Versa seems tough enough to take that treatment in stride.
The Versa name hints at “versatile” in the word-association corner of my mind, and should you try one on for size, you’ll find it has room for you.
