      Because the Versa is a subcompact and the Sentra sells well.

      No more than loaded versions of any other compact. Not that they sell a ton of them but it's what some people want.

      Amen! I mean if you are Bugatti or Jaguar I can see trying to make your cars all share a similar look, but every car should be styled and designed for it's specific goal. Who the hell knows or cares that a Nissan looks kinda the same from car to car?

      If there were parts sharing that occurred to reduce costs (like using the exact same headlights on a Sentra or a Altima) then sure...but that's not the case.

      Kia and Hyundai make much better looking cars these days.

      Versa always looked like the bottom of the line, compromise-on-everything, ugly car. Sentra actually looked kinda cool, especially 5-8 years ago. Now, this... This is freaking hideous. They might as well drop the Versa, as this abomination takes the crown of grotesque.

      What? I seriously don't get the strong vitriol you have for this car. The blue one above is quite attractive. It could use a 1" drop and a plood delete option, but other than that, I'd say it's reasonably attractive, especially in that color and with those multi-spoke wheels.

      Now the new Versa sedan on the other hand *IS* a steaming pile of crap. It's arguably the most lackluster new car on the market and makes the Sentra look like a luxury/sport sedan by comparison. In some ways its actually worse than the car that came before it.

      so i work at a nissan dealer and this is definitely a welcome improvement over the outgoing sentra. the outgoing model is the definition of a disconnected and boring drive. the styling only appeals to 16 year old females and the interior feels like 1990's hyundai accent. the new model at least (for now) seems like a much more modern design with a much nicer interior that only gets better with trim levels.

      its not going to be anything fun to drive, but for the price and features end of it - i think it will be hard to beat.

      I think the versa is being sold only to make the sentra look that much better when you are actually at the car lot, haha.

      Man such hate for this car. I think it looks fine, pretty handsome actually, much better than the Versa.

      It's an improvement in every way over the current one and I think they'll see a nice sales increase.

      Looks great in this shot:

      I think that, especially in these pictures, the new Sentra looks too narrow in proportion to it's overall height. It's almost as if an extra three inch layer were sandwiched in there somewhere. (The Versa also has this same issue to me) The design language stretched and widened works much better on the Altima. I understand the new pedestrian crash standards are the root of the rash of new, bulbous noses on late model vehicles, but other cars in the class seem to handle it much better, at least to my eyes. On the other hand, a Nissan NA employee that lives up the street from me has had a new Sentra (in white) in their driveway for the last week, and when I walk by it (almost daily) the rear looks much better in person than in pictures.

      Bingo! It has clown car proportions (too tall and narrow) like the first gen Prius.
