Here is a pic of an HR16de with 93kw. I see one big difference, there might be more. I know of a few tuning companies that get up to 125bhp/ 93kw with tuning alone on the older HR's so I agree that the CVTCS being tweaked for more power is doable. All the companies mention adjusting the CVTCS. The engines coming with the 93kw stock are all twin CVTCS with dual injectors just like our current Versa and Note.

i can spot one other difference compared to our HR16DE's in that picture also...if you look closely there is definitely a size difference in the throttle body compared to ours, looks like they went with a larger throttle body for the newer design if im not mistaken

What the sr really needs is rear disk brakes and a bigger motor. I would trade for one then.

The MX-6 was mechanically identical to the Mazda 626 and subsequently the Ford Probe. These cars shared the GD (19881992) and GE (19931997) platforms.

What ever happened to a good old 2.0L turbo. Seems like every manufacturer used to have one now almost no one does.

They still do but we are seeing smaller engines now for whatever reason. Either taxes, emissions, efficiency or cost to build. But there are still a ton of 2.0t's.

Some with 2.0t are hyundai, ford, cadillac, audi, subaru, and mercedes. The last one being the most beastly 2.0t ever made. Mercedes really knows how to squeeze some power out of an engine. There are probably more but that was off the top of my head.

Nissan has a 1.2t and a 1.6t currently. The new Z is coming with a turbo 4 cylinder and I highly doubt it will be a 1.6 so hopefully Nissan will have at least a 2.0t soon. Knowing them it will be a 1.8. They love the tiny underpowered 4 cylinder these days. Strange since they used to be on the other end of the spectrum in the 90's. Now nissan just seems to make big power out of the VQ v6 engines. Wish they put half that effort into a 4 cylinder.

Not from the US but here is a blue SR from the Toronto motor show. Only posting because I have only seen this in red thus far.

Note SR review

Test Drive: 2015 Nissan Versa Note SR - Autos.ca

Some quotes from review by Brendan McAleer

So its practical, and looks a bit sporty, and might even have your neighbour saying, Hey, nice new car. So far so good.

it is a little bit too far on the cheap side. True, this is the low end of the market

Overall though, when judged against the competition, the Note provides excellent levels of passenger comfort, with a nice upright driving position, and relaxing ride.

One principal reason to buy a Note over a Micra is the availability of a continuously variable transmission. Few enthusiasts like these, preferring a manual gearbox or at least a paddle-shifted dual-clutch, but the fact is, a CVT can be quite nice if you drive it properly. Which is to say, slowly.

It looks sporty enough, but is entirely well-mannered in a boy-band, itd be the one with the leather coat and brooding look.

Thanks Brendan for a tell it like it is, thorough article! 08versailles

That's how I drive my CVT Versa, slow and steady. Unlike a geared auto the CVT will lower RPM's as it adjust for maximum economy and power.

A CVT is engaging despite what the auto press says. You have infinite gear ratios your right foot is the key how can it not be engaging? I use the tach more on my CVT Versa then I ever did in any geared auto I drove. Whether being able to get the RPM's to drop or find a point on the tach to get maximum power and hold it there so much control.
