HBs should be called Versa and sedans should be called Tiida, Wadya think...

I personally feel that HBs should be called Versa because they are versatile and sedans should be called Tiida. Sedans are versatile but not like the HB. And Tiida is a cool name so that would help separate the two. The Tiidas they have in South America have a much cooler grille. If Nissan could figure out the bumper req. thingy, that grille would be welcome indeed. Just my .02 that's all don't get angry lol. Ciao.

This is correct. In japan where the car originated the tiida is the hatch and the latio is the sedan.

I say keep it the same in USA as it is. Both Versa's one HB and one a sedan. No reason to add a new name to the lineup.

Here in Aus, the Tiida is sedan and the hatch. They should have left it called the "Pulsar" though, as they lost lots of sales from the name change. They also advertised the car here from Samantha (Sex and the City) which really 'feminised' the car.

Bad marketing. They're now marketing the easy access to the elderly :P

Funny thing about other carmaker's hbs and sedans under the same bodytype is that the hb is always more money. I was going to lease a subaru imprezza for a low price, but the price was only for the imprezza sedan. The hb was 5-600 more. Making the lease more money. The same holds true for the mazda 3, kia rio 5, etc. Pretty cool that Nissan kept the same price for both the sedan and hb. For that reason alone I bought the hb thinking that it was an upgrade for resale for no extra money. The latin american Tiidas look cooler as a sedan name all I am saying. Ciao.

"Pretty cool that Nissan kept the same price for both the sedan and hb".

We do not have the same prices here for HB vs. Sedan.
The sedan is cheaper than the HB over here

Wow ILMV never knew that before. In the US both styles are the same price. I don't know if this ever was discussed before. How much more BTW. Ciao.

The 1.8s sedan and the 1.8sl sedan are the same price as the hbs last time i looked. Are you saying there are no s and sl sedans? Ciao.

Also ILMV, your Canadian dollar is pretty strong lately. If I was Canadian and had some dough, I would definitely buy US dollars, or maybe US money market funds. Opposite for us, though. The time to have bought CDN came and went. I think I remember when the CDN was .67 to the US dollar. Pretty much a 25% valuation increase to the USD. That aint chump change.
