Nissan has revealed prices for three of its 2013 offerings: the Versa, Cube and Armada. There are no exterior revisions for any beyond paint choices, but all get new combinations in packaging and tech along with minor price increases.
The base, five-speed manual Versa S sedan rings up at $11,898 before delivery and taxes. Even at that price, the Versa remains the least expensive new car in Canada to buy. A 1.6 S AT with a four-speed automatic joins the lineup on top of the five-speed and the Xtronic CVT, bringing 26 mpg city and 35 mpg highway EPA (9.0 city and 6.7 highway L/100 km) to the mix.
Aero enhancements like low-rolling resistance tires, an air intake guide, rear spoiler and rear wheel and underbody air deflectors mean that every CVT Versa gets 40 highway mpg EPA (5.9 L/100 km), up from 38 mpg (6.2 L/100 km) in 2012.
The 2013 Cube now starts at $17,788 before delivery and taxes for the S trim and the transmission choices remain a six-speed manual or CVT.
The 2013 Armada's starting price has gone up and is now $59,178 before delivery. A new Platinum Reserve Package is available in the US-spec model for much more. It includes 20-inch dark chrome wheels, dark chrome grille and outside mirrors, two-tone Chocolate/Almond leather seating, and dark satin chrome interior accents. For the back-seaters, the single eight-inch screen for the DVD system becomes two seven-inch, headrest-mounted screens.
