How To Know Which Nissan Is Best For College Students


Okay, put Pokémon Go down for a minute. We need to talk. The fall semester is coming up, right? Take a look out the window. Go ahead, we’ll wait.

Okay, see that car with the mismatched front right fender, faded paint job, and lousy stereo system that’s in your driveway? It was good enough (just barely) when you were going to high school. It got you there and to the mall. At least it was better than taking the bus or bumming a ride with your folks. Ugh!

But college? Really? In that? Time for a new set of wheels, my friend.


So let’s get serious for a moment. You’re shopping for a new ride that will take you to college and beyond. We expect that you want something that’s easy to own, cheap on gas, and won’t burn a hole in your wallet.

But you also want some goodies like a kickin’ audio system, access to your favorite Internet and social media haunts, and plenty of room for your friends and your stuff. And it would be nice if it had some zip to it, so you’d actually enjoy driving for a change. What a concept.

We have an idea. Imagine showing up on campus with a brand-spank, clean-as-whistle, bright and shiny new 2016 Nissan from your hometown Denville, New Jersey Nissan dealer, Nissan World of Denville? It will make you do your happy dance, we’ll bet.

We’re not shy about saying that Nissans are great cars. They’re well-built, last a long time, are fun to drive, and come with all the bells and whistles for your on-the-go college lifestyle. So we picked out a couple of our 2016 Nissans for sale at Nissan World of Denville that we think you’re going to like.

2016 Nissan Versa® Sedan

We selected the 2016 Nissan Versa because it gives you a whole lot of “bang for the buck.” In fact, at just $11,990, the Nissan Versa has the lowest MSRP of any car out there. Now hold on. Before you go thinking that this is some “stripped down,” “entry level” piece of basic transportation, you’ll be happy to know that the new 2016 Nissan Versa 4-door sedan is surprisingly well equipped with lots of standard features you wouldn’t expect.

Sleek-Looking Sheetmetal

Let’s start with how the Versa looks. Nissan put some serious effort into making the Versa more than just an “econobox.” The Versa’s exterior is sleek, contemporary, and stylish. It’s got just enough subtle chrome bling on the grille and door handles to make it stand out without being over the top. The Versa’s silhouette is sleek and aerodynamic, which helps it in fuel-efficiency department. Plus, the available rear spoiler is a sporty addition that adds some flair.

The inside of the new 2016 is a lot bigger than you would expect from a “compact” sedan. It’s remarkably roomy with lots of extra headroom and legroom so it can comfortably seat up to 5 people without cramping their style.

Spacious Quality Interior

Quality is another big selling point for the Versa’s cockpit. From the cup holders and carpeting to the dash and seats, everything has an upscale feel to it. Plus, the Versa just feels right from the moment you get behind the wheel. That’s because Nissan paid extra attention to how all the switches, buttons, shift knob, instruments, and other controls work together, so all you have to do is get in and enjoy the ride.

You’ll also appreciate the Versa’s remarkable “versa-tility.” A 60/40 split fold-down rear seats give you a huge pass-through to the Versa’s oversized trunk so you can stow those awkward items more easily. And with 14.9 cubic feet, the Versa’s trunk can swallow up all sorts of gear that you need for your daily life.

Top Technology Features

Speaking about enjoying the ride. Nissan did its homework in the technology department. You don’t have to sacrifice your connectivity to your socially active, Internet-aware world because the new 2016 Nissan Versa knows how to speak technology’s language fluently.

NissanConnectsm with Navigation and Mobile Apps is where it’s all happening. It’s a full-featured, available infotainment and app suite with hands-free phone capability, Bluetooth® streaming audio, enhanced voice recognition, a handy USB port for your iPod®, and a nav system displayed on a 5.8-inch color touchscreen display. The available SiriusXM® Radio lets you enjoy a ton of programming, and you can stay connected with access to popular sites, including Google, Facebook, Pandora, iHeart Radio, and more.

Spirited Performance & Low Fuel Costs

When it comes to performance and handling, the word “boring” isn’t in the 2016 Versa sedan’s vocabulary. In fact, you’ll find the 2016 Nissan Versa’s advanced Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission) helps provide smoother performance, improved fuel economy, and quicker acceleration. Its 109-horsepower engine has enough power to get you there with some pep. And you’ll love the Versa’s excellent fuel economy, too. It gets up to an EPA-estimated 31 mpg in the city and an impressive 40 mpg on the highway, giving it an outstanding 400-mile range for those semester-break road trips. That’s better fuel economy than a 2015 Chevy Sonic, a 2016 Ford Fiesta, or a 2015 Hyundai Accent. Just sayin’.

Advanced Safety Features

Now let’s talk about safety, which is a very important subject these days. The new 2016 Versa goes to the head of the class with such important safety features as an available rearview monitor, standard tire pressure monitoring system, six advanced airbags, Vehicle Dynamic Control and Traction Control System, and Anti-Lock Brakes with Electronic Brake-Force Distribution and Brake Assist.


2016 Nissan Versa® Note® Hatchback

The Nissan Versa Note has just about everything that the Nissan Versa has, but wrapped in a hip, urban hatchback package that’s sporty, sexy, and fun. If a hatchback is more your style, then the Versa Note gives you all of the convenience and versatility (there’s that word again) that you could ask for. How about 18.8 cubic feet of cargo space? Fold down the 60/40 split rear seats, pop open the hatch and marvel at just how much room you have for all your gear. Plus the Versa Note’s exclusive Divide-n-Hide® Adjustable Floor gives you even more storage space.

Unique Customization Options

The Nissan Versa Note Color Studio lets you make your new Versa as unique as you are. Punch up the Note’s personality with your own designer touches, such as contrasting spoiler, mirror and door handle colors, colorful alloy wheels, rear roof spoiler, distinctive interior accents, exterior paint choices, interior accent lighting, and much more.

Lower Price Than Competitors

The Versa Note’s class-exclusive available Around-View Monitor gives you an unobstructed view of your surroundings helping you get into and out of those tight parking spots you’re likely to find both on and off campus. And best of all, the Note’s starting MSRP is lower than the Ford Fiesta, Chevy Sonic, and Honda Fit.

The new 2016 Nissan Versa 4-door sedan and 2016 Nissan Versa Note hatchback are two exceptional choices that should be on every college student’s wish list. They earn an “A+” for affordability, features, style, and reliability. Test drive them today at your hometown Denville Nissan dealer, Nissan World of Denville.
