About the 2016 Nissan Versa Sedan
The Nissan Versa Sedan, one of the best-selling vehicles in the sub-compact sedan class, offers high value, exceptional roominess and mid-size vehicle technology without a mid-size price.
Versa Sedan’s standard 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine includes a range of fuel efficiency-enhancing technologies, such as a dual fuel injector system and a twin Continuously Variable valve Timing Control System (CVTCS) mounted on both intake and exhaust camshafts. The engine is rated at 109 horsepower and 107 lb-ft of torque.
The available Xtronic transmission utilizes an auxiliary gearbox using planetary gearing, helping enhance efficiency and provide driving enjoyment through D-mode step shift programming. It also features a transmission ratio of 7.3:1, which is broader than those of conventional CVTs and even typical 7-speed automatic transmissions.
Fuel economy with the Xtronic transmission is rated at 31 mpg city, 40 mpg highway and 35 mpg combined – providing an estimated 400-mile driving range**. Fuel economy with the 5-speed manual transmission is rated at 27/36/30 mpg and 26/35/30 mpg with the 4-speed automatic transmission.
The stylish body includes subtle chrome grill accents and available chrome door handles, along with an available rear spoiler. Inside, the spacious interior offers unexpected leg and headroom to seat five comfortably, while the large glove compartment provides plenty of convenient storage space.
