Has the hatch officially been announced for US yet? The USA site only has sedan right now I think, and hatch was always Tiida not Versa.

2008 Versa 1.8 SL CVT Hatchback (keyless, bluetooth, spoiler, 2010 grille), DC Sports Front Strut bar, AEM CAI, Ultra Racing Rear Sway Bar.

I hope the hatch is decent. I don't like the sedan at all tho. But I plan on a hatchback next, so I really just care about that lol

I've saw pictures of the 2012 and the exterior looks nice, kinda like a Camry in a way but the interior, meh, I'll keep mine. I can't stand the rounded vent holes and the rounded buttons on the steering wheel. If they kept the same interior with the newly redesigned exterior I would be a little jealous.There's also piece of mind in knowing the previous 4 years models are the same as what I just bought for compatibility/interchangeability issues.

Sedan-
  • I like the exterior better then the previous. It's classier and smoother. Not as quirky and funky of the 1st gen.
  • The interior seems to be a step down. I don't know how nissan could do that being the 1st gen is pretty bland, basic and looks like it was a DIY kit made by playschool. The new one is even more playschool.
  • The engine I love so far. Everyone knows I'm a fan of the HR16DE. Tuner companies in japan do things with the HR motors and they seem to be very good engines. This new one is revised with dual injectors and supposedly increase mpg's. I get over 40mpg with my old HR16DE so lets see what the new one can do!
  • It seems this is now a global car. I love global cars. Because they are the same all over the world. This is a pet peeve of mine. I always hated when they make cars drastically different between countries.

Hatch-
  • exterior is awesome from the windshield forward. The rest is ok, and I can't even say I like it better then 1st gen. It's too much rogue and murano and not enough mazda3 or GTI if you know what I mean.
  • the interior on this so far seems top notch. A huge improvement over previous generation. Seems much more upscale and fitting of the price tag finally
  • the engine so far we think will be the MR16DDT. I'm a fan only because it's turbo. But like the rest of the MR family the gas mileage is not the greatest according to juke forums. Also there have already been cases of engines needing to be replaced and alot of issues with the stock intercooler piping breaking. I wonder what a base non turbo engine would be in this? Or maybe nissan will do like the juke and only offer the one.
  • if this doesn't come with a manual tranny and turbo engine it's a huge fail on nissan's part.

sedan




pros
  • Exterior is easy on the eyes, can't say much else about it.
  • Good amount of standard safety features.
  • Fuel & temp gauge are digital, which I like. 1st gen Versa didn't have a temp gauge, just colors for hot/cold.
  • Front end looks more like a car than an SUV like the Murano.
cons
  • Plastic interior assembly parts look really cheap. The control knobs for climate control appear really simple and 2nd best. Nissan decided to use lines instead of numbers for the fan speed. Could be a little more upscale like the Sentra.
  • The cup holder locations are lame, why the hell should you have to reach over the shifter?
  • Probably too pedestrian friendly, should be more aggressive (Hyundai Accent, Mazda 2). Nissan trying to cater to the masses like usual.
  • They downgraded to a 1.6l engine, for god knows why they did this probably to increase avg. MPG. Should of gone up to 1.9l or 130hp.
The hatch might have the same features, or more depending on the trim that's being purchased. Have to wait and see when its available to the public for purchase.

There's a great improvement in the structure and I guess the precision engineering will improve the performance of this car as well. I can see that they work hard with the features of new nissan parts so this one is worth a ride.
