Top 5 New Nissans for College Grads


Graduation is just around the corner. So now is a great time to start thinking about sending your graduating son or daughter down the highway of life in a brand-new 2015 Nissan from Central Valley Nissan, your number-one Nissan dealership in Modesto, Calif., serving the nearby communities of Tracy, Stockton, and Lodi.

Nissans are an attractive choice for new college or high school graduates because they’re safe, reliable, affordable, and fuel-efficient. But they’re also stylish and fun to drive, having that all-important “cool factor” your graduate will appreciate.

New Nissan College Grad Program

To make your Nissan purchase even more affordable, take advantage of the exclusive Nissan College Grad Program with special pricing discounts available up to two years after graduation. The program does not require a co-signer and provides a simple, “no-hassle” buying experience which is especially beneficial to first-time buyers. To qualify, you must have graduated from an accredited U.S. two or four-year university, college, nursing, or graduate school. You must show present employment or future employment beginning within 90 days of financing your Nissan.  You’ll receive pre-negotiated pricing plus all applicable incentives, along with one of the best available financing rates. And there’s even a 90-day deferred payment option.

Here’s a rundown on some of the best Nissans to consider for your graduating senior:


2015 Nissan Versa Sedan

With a starting MSRP of just under $12,000, the well-equipped Nissan Versa still reigns as offering the lowest MSRP of any new vehicle in America. But just because it’s a bargain doesn’t mean that you’re getting a model devoid of features. In fact, the Versa comes packed with a host of features you’d find on cars costing thousands more. It has fresh, contemporary styling, plus best-in-class interior legroom, so your grad’s pals can stretch out comfortably in the back seat. And with a class-leading 14.9 cu. ft. of trunk space, there’s plenty of room for your grad’s stuff. Motivating the 2015 Nissan Versa is a snappy 109-hp four-cylinder engine that gets an EPA-estimated 27 mpg city/36 mpg highway. Even in standard “S” trim, the Versa comes equipped with air conditioning and Bluetooth® hands-free connectivity. In terms of safety, the Versa comes with six air bags Vehicle Dynamic Control and Traction Control, and Anti-lock brakes with Electronic Brake Force Distribution and Brake Assist.


2015 Nissan Versa Note Hatchback

You might call the 2015 Nissan Versa Note “the little hatchback that could.” Sharing the same 109 hp engine as the Versa sedan, the Note is as spirited to drive as it is appealing to look at. The Note’s modern aerodynamic exterior won’t get lost in a crowd with large vertical tail lights, wedge-shaped projector-beam headlights, and a unique active grille shutter that opens to increase air circulation at low speeds and closes at higher speeds to help reduce drag. The available Around View® Monitor features two cameras that give you both a rear-facing and bird’s-eye-view of the vehicle on the available touchscreen, dash-mounted color display. Of course, grad’s will love the Note’s “Versa”-tility with an exclusive “Divide-N-Hide” adjustable floor for safely securing their gear out of sight, 60/40, flat-folding rear seats, and a total interior volume of 112.9 cu. ft. At a little more than $14,000 MSRP, it’s still got plenty of “bang for the buck.”

2015-Nissan-Sentra-Central-Valley-Nissan-Modesto-CA2015 Nissan Sentra

The Sentra comes to the party with lots to offer. Your grad can step up to a sporty 1.8 liter four-cylinder engine that delivers quick acceleration combined with excellent fuel efficiency of up to 40 mpg when equipped with the Xtronic® CVT transmission. Its handsomely styled and low-slung exterior with its large projector-beam headlights with LED accents and large LED tail lights is a real head-turner from any angle. The 2015 Sentra is loaded with premium features you’d expect to find on more upscale vehicles. Attractive and lightweight 17-inch aluminum wheels add a sophisticated flair. The Sentra is remarkably roomy for what’s considered a “compact” sedan with 37.4 inches of rear legroom and 15.1 cu. ft. of cargo space. It also can be ordered with such available upscale appointments as a Bose audio system, leather seats, dual climate control, steering wheel-mounted controls, a large touchscreen display with optional NissanConnectsm with navigation and mobile apps, and intuitive controls. Your grad will also love the convenience of the Nissan Intelligent Key® that opens or closes the doors with a tap of the door handle. There’s even an available hands-free text messaging assistant that actually reads your texts aloud so your grad can stay connected to family and friends while driving safely.


2015 Nissan Juke

There’s nothing ordinary about the high-impact styling of the futuristic Nissan Juke crossover. With a myriad of vibrant exterior and interior trim options to choose from, your grad can customize their Juke so that it reflects their unique personality, both inside and out. The race-inspired available turbocharged 1.6 liter engine hits its 188 hp “sweet spot” at 5,600 rpm for plenty of passing power. Your grad will safely rule the road with torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive, vehicle-speed-sensitive electric power steering, and rear multi-link suspension. Plus, the Juke can be optioned with an extensive assortment of high-tech gadgetry and cutting-edge safety features. These include NissanConnect® with Mobile Apps, available Around View® monitor with Moving Object Detection, Tire Pressure Monitoring System, Automatic On-Off Headlights, Nissan’s Advanced Air Bag System, Anti-Lock Brakes with Electronic Brake Force Distribution, and Brake Assist; plus Front Active Head Restraints and Supplemental Side-Impact Air Bags.


2015 Nissan Leaf

For an electrifying alternative to today’s modern transportation choices, the remarkable 2015 goes to the head of the class. This amazing, forward-thinking all-electric four-door features a powerful 80 kW AC synchronous electric motor that delivers a spirited 107 hp with an astonishing 126 city/101 highway MPGe. With an effective cruising range of 84 miles and available home charging station, and a growing number of ChargePoint® stations which can be located and accessed by a handy mobile app, there’s plenty of ways to keep it rolling silently along. The futuristic cockpit is amazingly quiet and loaded with all the high-tech bells and whistles you’d expect from a car that’s so ahead of its time. So if short in-city driving is in your grad’s future, then then advanced, zero-emission Nissan Leaf may be the perfect choice.
