I saw on there website. Well....... all I have to say is if your in the market for the sedan buy the 2011!! There are still plenty of them out there, and not just any of them, but the SL models. The new sedan is not availible with intelligent key and 6 speaker setup. However fog lights are now standard for the SL and so is bluetooth. A 6 way drivers seat is standard on all models. There are some other things as well. Over all, $16,300 for a nicely loaded SL is not bad at all, compared to the current pricing and for what you get. I expect more options when 2014 comes around. Like maybe an audio upgrade, moonroof, sport package. But I only expect these things depending on sales and what they have in mind for the hatchback. If the hatchback has these nice features, then no, I dont expect them for the sedan, we will see. Overall, it really isnt a bad deal, no matter witch trim you choose, but I do think the SL is a really good buy for what you get. If I didnt get the sentra, I "may" have gotten an SL. Did I metion they added the metallic blue metallic paint? It's a beautiful color, and more people complement me on the color more then the car, ;)

I went by nissan today and they don't have any on the lot but said they should in the next few days. They did have one of the new Murano convertible but when I looked at it I was not expecting to see that it had less room front back and sides than my V.

The Murano convertible is ugly, who would buy an SUV convertible? Defeats the purpose of its functions.

that is a huge jump between the S and the SV. I can't believe you can only get the manual transmission in the S and it doesn't even come with a tach. I'm a little disappointed at how they did some things. Very big down grade from the 2011's that came with tach, pw window, pw locks and ABS.

I've exceeded my daily dose of irony. Only one with manual, only one with no tach. My 01 sentra XE manual had no tach, only option was AC.

2012 Nissan Versa: Higher price, more mpg, less space

Here is one of the first reviews. The usual "it's really cheap" vibe comes across. But overall not as bad a review as I thought it would get.

One thing that caught my eye and can honestly say is NOT a shock is the MPG's the car pulled. While being tested the car still got just about 30mpg. Now you know when they test these they are not easy on them. In comparison in 2007 the Versa hatch showed around 26mpg during tests. Sure there is alot of variable but I'm telling you all now the HR16 is a serious gas sipper.

So.. if you want a sedan you have to get the 1.6 motor?
Yes. The S, SV, and SL all have the same HR16 motor. But this is where Nissan is making the hatch and the sedan completly different cars. The hatch is suppossed to be the sporty version, and the sedan will be the practical, entry level sedan. I was reading up on the 2012 kia rio, and the SX model is suppossed to be a 1.6 motor, but pushing 138hp. While still getting over 30mpg. I love the styling of the new rio, I advise everyone to take a look. But Im still alittle unconfortable switching brands........

•Responsiveness. Not only is the modest engine livelier than expected, the steering is firm and direct, the brakes — despite a slightly soft pedal feel — grab surely and the chassis is composed and confidence-inspiring in most maneuvers (though it's easy to get the front end slip-sliding by taking a tight corner very fast).---By James R. Healey, USA TODAY
:thumb2: I knew it couldn't be too difficult to adjust for more steering response. When test driving, could someone comment on this? Thx. The new platform doesn't hurt either:).
Also like the available cruise control on S model [boosting speaker count to four?!?!?], but power locks and windows went missing again. I assume they will return near the end of the life cycle as in previous years. I've seen this with previous sentras and civics, throwing in some extras and calling them Special Editions or Plus models after production costs have minimized.
I like the trip computer too. Idk how accurate these are, but at least results should be repeatable and therefore meaningful.
Gotta try one of these engines with a manual! Hopefully soon:biggrinjester:
