The Nissan Versa Sedan has been exceeding America’s expectations since its introduction. For 2012, the all-new Versa Sedan delivers a level of quality, refinement, roominess and value on par with larger cars costing thousands more.
The Versa is not only the lowest priced, but also since its launch in August, the 2012 Nissan Versa Sedan outsold all other subcompacts, making it the best-selling subcompact in America.
To make matters even better, the 2012 Nissan Versa Sedan (MSRP $10,990) offers five-passenger practicality, increased interior space and better fuel efficiency. It weighs 150 pounds less than before, and it sports a smoother, sleeker, more sophisticated exterior design. It even offers more rear legroom than both the Lexus LS 460 and the BMW 5 Series. And the spaciousness comes at no expense to the cargo area, as the trunk offers 14.8 cubic feet of space – more than some midsize sedans including the Honda Accord.
The completely redesigned exterior is not only pleasing to the eyes, it also has function. A slippery and low 0.31 coefficient of drag and a sweeping roofline that helps reduce roof panel vibrations contribute to the increased fuel efficiency and interior cabin quietness. Whether on the freeway or city streets, the Versa is surprisingly composed, hushed and comfortable.
Three Versa models – 1.6 S, 1.6 SV and 1.6 SL – all offer a 1.6-liter four-cylinder good for 109 hp and 107 lb/ft of torque through either a five-speed manual transmission (available exclusively in the 1.6 S) or a next-generation Xtronic® CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission). With Continuously Variable Valve Timing Control System (CVTCS), the Versa Sedan has plenty of pep and is highly fuel-efficient, returning 30 mpg city and 38 mpg highway in CVT-equipped models.
The 1.6 S Versa Sedan is generously equipped with a trip computer, air conditioning, six-way adjustable driver’s seat and a stereo with CD player and auxiliary input. If you opt for the Xtronic® CVT instead of the five-speed manual, cruise control is standard as well.
The 1.6 SV models are equipped standard with cruise control, an upgraded four-speaker stereo system, remote keyless entry, Fine Vision high-contrast white-illuminated gauges and full power accessories. Buyers can also equip the 1.6 SV with iPod® and Bluetooth® capability. The top 1.6 SL model adds a 60/40-split/folding rear seat, front map lights, Bluetooth®, a premium audio system with speed sensitive volume control and 15-inch alloy wheels. For even more technology, SL models can be equipped with the Nissan Navigation System and XM Satellite Radio.
Buyers can choose from eight colors including Titanium – a color previously only available on the legendary Nissan GT-R sports car. Additional exterior features include a chrome-accented grille and door handles, and body-colored front and rear fascias.
The Versa is well equipped with standard occupant safety features including four-wheel Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist, Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) with Traction Control System (TCS) and six airbags.
