Nissan revealed the all-new 2012 Nissan Versa at the New York Auto Show. The stylish new Versa comes standard with fuel saving features like Nissan’s new dual injector system and sub-planetary CVT transmission design. The new Versa isn’t just stylish it’s also very fuel efficient. It’s expected combined city/highway fuel economy is 33 miles per gallon.
The new Versa is small on the outside but big on the inside. A $10,990 starting M.S.R.P. and low cost of ownership allows the average consumer to enjoy this stylish new vehicle from Nissan.
The new 1.6-liter engine is rated at 109 horsepower @ 6,000 rpm and 107 lb-ft of torque @ 4,400 rpm.
The Versa Sedan is available with a 5-speed manual transmission (1.6 S model only) and with a next-generation Xtronic CVT™ transmission. The CVT allows continuous change of the transmission gear ratio by connecting the two pulleys with a metallic belt and changing their diameter by using hydraulic pressure. The new CVT design adds an auxiliary gearbox using planetary gearing, helping improve efficiency.
Fuel economy for the 2012 Versa Sedan is estimated at 30 mpg City, 37 mpg Highway and 33 mpg Combined with the CVT transmission (27/36/30 mpg with the 5-speed manual transmission) (preliminary estimates).
