2020 Nissan Versa First Impressions; What Are The Right Safety Features? | Talking Cars #226

2020 Nissan Versa First Impressions; What Are The Right Safety Features? | Talking Cars #226 1

New at the track this week is the 2020 Nissan Versa we recently purchased for our test program. We share our first impressions, and discuss the struggles of the subcompact sedan segment.  We also talk about NHTSA's (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) new initiative to overhaul its vehicle crash test program, and how this will benefit consumers. In our Q&A segment, we answer audience questions about the long-term reliability of Ford's Ecoboost engines, if there are too many safety features on modern cars, and what is a good solution to replacing expensive LED headlights.
