2012 Nissan Versa Sedan



Quote:
It looks like our first reaction to link the Chinese market Nissan Sunny, revealed in December 2010, to the North American 2012 Versa, was spot on, as these photos clearly prove. Nissan’s new entry in the affordable small sedan segment is a very awkward looking proposal (to say the least…), which probably stems from the fact the Versa / Sunny is based on the Micra’s V-platform architecture, hence the odd proportions of the body.

“The new Versa Sedan stands out as the only expensive looking car in the segment – with a lot of eye power,” said Al Castignetti, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division, Nissan North America.

“Its sculpted, dynamic proportions are modern without being gimmicky, projecting a much higher sense of design value than you might expect in a vehicle with a $10,990 starting M.S.R.P."

We’ll disagree with Castignetti assessment on the Versa’s exterior, but feel free to express your own opinion in the comments section below. Now, moving on to the interior, the Versa’s dashboard appears to be lifted straight off the Micra supermini with only some minor changes to the instrument panel layout and the switchgear.

While retaining the same 102.4-inch wheelbase and 66.7-inch width as the previous generation Versa Sedan, Nissan’s newcomer is 1.2 inches lower in height (59.6 inches) and 0.6 inches shorter in overall length (175.4 inches). According to Nissan, the Versa has more legroom than some mid and large size sedans such as the Lexus LS460, BMW 5-series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class., while offering a trunk volume of 14.8 cubic feet.

Power for the new Versa comes via a second-generation 1.6-liter HR16DE 4-cylinder engine rated at 109 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 107 lb-ft of torque at 4,400 rpm. Buyers can choose between a 5-speed manual transmission (1.6 S model only) and a next-generation Xtronic CVT transmission.

Nissan says fuel economy for the 2012 Versa Sedan is estimated at 30 mpg City, 37 mpg Highway and 33 mpg combined with the CVT transmission, and 27/36/30 mpg with the 5-speed manual gearbox.

As mentioned previously, the 2012 Versa Sedan will be priced from $10,990 (about €7,700 at the current exchange rates), with sales set to start in the summer.

The current gen Versa interior is much better looking than that! It looks much older than it should. Too much grey, grey, and more grey. Although the cluster looks great lol.

i don't like it at all. the 1st gen is way better looking. and the interior sucks in this one. the 2012 model looks more luxury based exterior wise.

im happy with my 07. not stoked about this 2012 versa

It seems as though they've diverged somewhat with the new sedan and the new hatchback. I think the new hatchback (not officially confirmed yet as a Versa for the states yet...but I think it was actually announced new version of the Tiida...just not sure how it reconciles with the sedan redesign) is looking pretty darn nice. Keeps sort of the youthful spirit of the current Versa (with all the mature practicality it has) whereas the sedan seems to now match the mature inside with a mature outside...I don't like it.

Just look at that! Still...doesn't seem quite right with the sedan, does it? Not really the same car? I don't see why they'd get rid of the hatchback in the states though, it's sold really really well...but again, this is very unusual. Maybe they're looking to get rid of the Sentra, have the Versa sedan, and bring this in as the Tiida or something else? We'll see!

not really feeling the sedan, except for the front end. the tail lamps look goofy as hell from the side, the whole side kinda looks goofy, and the inside is like a mix mash of the cube interior imo...i mean still a good ride for the $$$ no doubt.

i wonder how the new hatchback will turn out

I take it back...after looking at it I do see the connections between the new sedan and the new hatch...like the hatch a lot more, but I like the sedan more than the current versa sedan and I am glad that they streamlined things a bit...for better or for worse it actually looks like a sedan now, but looking at the nose, the headlights, the taillights, the curve of the roof, etc, still same as the hatch...good. Love the new hatchback though...where is the US announcement?!

It looks like a damn Yaris sedan from the rear due to the rear tail lights and trunk opening. The mock for the interior is way better than the finalized version. Nissan gets more generic over time unfortunately.

This is the first thing that came to mind! And that it looks smaller, and more of a shape like the Altima. I liked the current sedan.

I'm waiting to see the new gen of the hatchback version tho, it should be out soon i believe..

I really do not like this tho, and if the hatchback is similar to this (if its similar to that Tiida image i might get it) I do believe I'd be going for a Juke instead..
