Americans who've never driven a new Renault
Clio, but really want to (they should) will be pleased with Nissan's new Versa subcompact for the US. The 2007 model-year, $12,000+ almost-minicars will arrive first in hatchback form in mid-2006 and, later in 2006, in sedan guise. Nissan also announced further "enhancements" to its 2007 car lineup, including an all-new Sentra, all-new Altima and "enhanced" Maxima (we're not sure a Maxima can, linguistically speaking, be further enhanced, but we're willing to put a cork in it, just this time). The Versas will be assembled at Nissan s Aguascalientes, Mexico facility, which also builds the current Nissan Sentra.
