Nissan Versa Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2014 0 Trip computer indicated 36 MPG in mixed urban and highway driving. Appears to be accurate based on how much gas I put in it at the end of the rental period. The urban driving also had idling time so was not fuel economy friendly. see full Nissan Versa review

I did a lot of start and stop driving this summer at a camp, constantly reving up the engine to slowly drive over terrible speed bumps in the road.  When I left Georgia, my average MPG was 31.3.  When I arrived back in CA, after going 63 MPH (give or take 2) the whole way, my average MPG was up to 32.7. see full Nissan Versa review

Good gas mileage, especially for the good amount of room in the front and back seats. Also,lots of cars with good mileage have poor safety ratings due to their lack of mass. The Versa has the best safety rating of the small cars, and sits up higher. see full Nissan Versa review

We purchased our Matrix NEW June of 2006, we now (21 Dec 2012) have 82,000 miles and I have monitored the mileage since we purchased the car. We get 24 in city driving and the VERY best we've got on a long freeway drive was 30mpg. Overall our mileage for the 80,000 miles is 27 which isn't great but is acceptable. see full Toyota Matrix review
