Do Weathertech Mats from a Versa Fit?

Sun Mar 06, 2011 2:01 pm

We didn't order our Leaf with floor mats. We have had Weathertech all-weather mats in our other car for years and love them, so we're going to put those in. Seeing as Weathertech hasn't made fitted mats for the Leaf yet, does anyone know if the front and rear mats from the Versa will fit the Leaf? I looked at the rear cargo mat, and it will clearly not fit. The fronts and rears look like they'd be close. Has anyone tried?

I didn't order floor mats either, so I would like to know the answer too!

Thanks.

Alright, absent anyone else knowing if they fit, I decided to be the guinea pig. I ordered a set of Grey Weathertech All-Weather mats for a 2011 Nissan Versa. I should have them in a few days and will report back with photos.

Thanks for being the guinea pig. Hope they fit. If they don't, does Weathertech take them back ?

ps : Leaf front legroom is 0.6 inches longer than Versa. One thing you could do is to check at a nissan dealship - put one of their versa mats in Leaf ...

Weathertech does take returns.

If they don't fit, I'll end up eating the shipping charges both ways, but that isn't a big deal. I think it was $15 to ship them to me, UPS ground.

Also, I filled out their "product request form" since even if the Versa mats fit, it still doesn't get the rear cargo area mat.

Nissan Versa Mats Fit with Modification

Mon Mar 14, 2011 11:59 pm

I ordered the Grey Weathertech 2011 Nissan Versa Mats. This is Weathertech Part Number #W36GR-W20GR, which is just their front W36 and rear W20, each in Grey. The color is a great match for the interior, and I'm happy to have the same Weathertech mats we've been using in our other car for the past few years. If you're unfamiliar with Weathertech mats, they are very durable, deep rubber mats that will hold an incredible amount of water, dirt and muck and keep your car clean. Knowing that I was ordering mats for a Versa, and hoping they'd fit the LEAF was a leap of faith. Total cost, including shipping, was about $115. It turned out that with some cutting and fitting, they look like they'll work just fine. I'm sure it won't take Weathertech long to figure out which of their mats actually fit the LEAF better, or make new ones to fit. I'll be happy when they do, as I definitely want the cargo area mat as well. Below is a collection of pictures I took while fitting them.

The driver's side was the biggest challenge.
Image

The dead-pedal on the mat is wider than it is on the car. The mat is too long and interferes with the "gas" pedal and the steering column universal joint.
Image

There are also some mat retaining clips that need to be removed.
Image

The retaining clip pops out if you squeeze the tabs together.
Image

Once trimmed, the mat fit fairly well.

The passenger side fit well, but was a bit too long:

After trimming about an inch off the top, it fit great:
Image

The rear mats fit ok, but the sculpted floor and the front seat mounts got in the way a bit:

A bit of trimming fixed them up as well:

I bought a set of four mats from Costco for about $30.00 These have similar deep grooves like the Weathertech.

I don't have my Leaf yet to show any pictures. But, I did try them out for size in a Leaf and they'll fit well. The driver's side will need to be shortened about 1-2 inches.
