2013 Nissan Versa Review, Price, Interior, Exterior, Engine. - 2012 Nissan Versa Sedan is redesigned and launches this small four door in the second generation with more standard safety features, and better fuel economy than its predecessor 2007-2011. Compared to 2007-2011 versa sedan, which is the newly designed 2012 model slightly smaller inside and this remains the largest car in the compact class. The roofline is 1.2 inches lower than before, but always still big enough to sit relatively upright to enable. There is legroom one inch less rear, but Nissan says that back seater’s knee as much distance as some medium sized cars this second generation versa sedan. And the specifications sheet shows a cubic foot of volume to 14.8 cubic feet, which remain the largest in the category wins the trunk.
Nissan North America has now followed that news by announcing that the next Versa hatchback will use the same platform, and echo many of the Note's styling cues. Few details are available at the moment, but Nissan confirms that the Versa will use the company's global V Platform, but "embrace features tailored to its markets in North and South America". The new car may well share similar proportions to the Asian market Tiida shown at Shanghai, with styling details from the new Note.
The addition of a four-speed automatic option is undoubtedly a little strange, considering the Japanese automaker already offers a CVT automatic and a five-speed manual option. But the addition makes the Versa sedan a more versatile model in the marketplace, since the CVT demands a $2,130 premium over the standard five-speed manual, while the four speed automatic will likely be offered for a $1,000 markup.
As for the reprogrammed CVT, the automaker promises an increase of two mpg on the highway, bringing its rating to 31 mpg city, 40 mpg highway. The five-speed manual will see 27 mpg city, 36 mpg highway numbers, while the four-speed automatic is promised to deliver 25 mpg city, 35 mpg highway. It almost seems as if the CVT is a better investment, considering the price premium will pay itself off over a couple of years in gas money.

The addition of the four-speed automatic is likely intended to offer clutch-averse buyers a cheaper way to get into a self shifting Versa; the CVT is a $2,130 option, while the four cog unit will likely cost close to the $1,000 it commanded as an option in the last gen sedan. Nissan expects the automatic, which will become available this fall, to return 26/35 mpg.

2013 Nissan Versa Interior and Exterior :
Nearly drowned out amid the launch of the Note compact and rumors about a new sports car was Nissan's recent announcement of several updates to the Versa Sedan for the 2013 model year. These include a retuned CVT that helps increase highway fuel economy by two mpg and a newly available four speed automatic.
The automaker states that the mileage increase is due to variety of small tweaks, including a reprogrammed CVT with a wider ratio spread, a new decklid spoiler and revised underbody ducting. The CVT equipped 2013 Versa is rated at 31 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway, which compares with 27/36 mpg for the standard five speed manual.
Overall, we think the Versa looks awkward thanks to its tall roofline and narrow width, but those dimensions are the reason the cabin feels so spacious. When you step inside the cabin of the Versa, there's an overwhelming sense of roominess. The biggest surprise is rear seat legroom, which is ridiculously accommodating for such a small car at 37 inches. The Fiesta can only manage 31 cubic inches, or a half foot less than the Versa. Even the full size Honda Accord can only manage another two-tenths of an inch more rear leg room than the Versa.

2013 Nissan Versa Engine :
So the interior of the Versa is less than ideal, but the B segment isn't known for its top quality animal hides and state of the art infotainment tech. The same can be said of the power under the hood, as the Versa is motivated by a 1.6 liter four cylinder engine packing a middling 109 horsepower at 6,000 revolutions per minute and 107 pound feet of torque at 4,400 RPM. That isn't a lot of power, even in this class. The Fiesta offers 120 horsepower from its 1.6 liter engine, while the Honda Fit promises 117 horsepower from its 1.5-liter. Luckily, at 2,424 pounds, the SL sedan is a bit lighter than either the Fiesta or the Fit. Nissan does offer a 122-horsepower, 1.8-liter mill, but only under the hood of the Versa Hatchback, which remains largely the same despite the Nissan's overhaul of this sedan variant.
