Test drivers say the 2012 Nissan Versa is good basic transportation. Its exterior isn’t flashy, its engines aren’t powerful, its interior is cheap-feeling and its standard features list can’t compare with other cars. But reviewers think that shoppers who know how to use a manual transmission and don’t need a lot of features can keep the Versa’s price low and get a lot of use out of the sedan and hatchback’s large cabin, huge trunk and good fuel economy.

2012 marks the beginning of the second generation for the Nissan Versa, and this means a complete exterior redesign for sedan styles, new interior features, and slightly different engine options. The Versa competes with other affordable sedans and hatchbacks including the Hyundai Accent, Toyota Yaris, and Ford Fiesta.

The 2012 Nissan Versa sedan has been completely redesigned, parting ways with the platform that underpins its Versa hatchback sibling. The new set of bones the Versa sedan rides on is called Nissan’s global V platform, which is lighter and uses less parts than the old chassis, helping the sedan reach as much as 38 mpg highway depending on configuration. Powering the Versa are two inline-four engines a 109-hp 1.6-liter for the sedan and a 122-hp 1.8-liter for the hatchback model. A total of four transmissions are offered within the range, including five and six-speed manuals, a four speed auto, and a continuously variable transmission (CVT).

2012 Nissan Versa Interior :
2012 Nissan Versa Interior. – The new 2012 Nissan Versa Sedan’s interior design of 90.0 cubic feet and trunk volume of 14.8 cubic feet (104.8 cubic feet total) are intended to not only look great on a specifications sheet the passenger and cargo spaces have been configured for real-world use. 2012 Nissan Versa Sedan has, for example, more rear legroom than some mid-size sedans trumping even luxury cars such as the Lexus LS460, BMW 5 series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class. And the trunk design focuses on useable space, taking into consideration everything from the size of the hinges to the shape of the sidewalls.

For 2012, the Versa sedan receives a completely new look, abandoning its stubby design and opting for a more arching body style with pointed lights. The Versa still isn’t a head-turner, although the new front grille is a nice touch. Fog lights, a rear spoiler, a chrome grille, and LED brake lights come standard in higher trims. 15-inch all-season tires are standard, but the hatchback can be fitted with 16-inch tires.

Inside the Nissan Versa, hard plastics abound, but test drivers aren’t as disappointed with the Versa’s interior quality as they thought they would be. At this price point, no car will have exceptional build quality, and for about $11,000, the Versa sedan scrapes by with hard plastics, a weak FM radio and an optional navigation system that is hard to use. Test drivers dislike the navigation system more than any other feature because the zoom function erases street names if you zoom out too much, and makes it impossible to use the map when it’s zoomed in. One test driver prefers the GPS system on his smartphone. The base Versa sedan comes standard with air conditioning and a two-speaker AM/FM/CD stereo that also has an auxiliary jack. Shoppers who want satellite radio will have to upgrade to the SV trim and add it as an optional feature. On the highest trim, navigation is optional, and Bluetooth is standard.

2012 Nissan Versa Exterior :
2012 Nissan Versa Exterior. – To achieve the new 2012 Nissan Versa Sedan’s upscale look, the designers gave the exterior shape a strong sense of volume, with a wide shoulder width and a smooth silhouette. In front, 2012 Nissan Versa Sedan features Nissan’s new signature sedan grille design and jewel-like headlights. The front end blends smoothly into the cabin, which offers flowing curves, while design elements such as the shape of the trunklid help give the new 2012 Nissan Versa Sedan excellent aerodynamics, including a low coefficient of drag of just 0.31. In addition, to help ensure superb functionality, fresh ideas were addressed in the initial stage between the designers and the engineering team.

Fuel economy for the Versa varies depending on transmission options and whether you opt for the sedan and the hatchback.

2012 Nissan Versa Engine :
2012 Nissan Versa Engine. – The 2012 Nissan Versa sedan and hatchback have different engines. The base sedan has a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine with 109 horsepower. Because it’s redesigned, reviewers have driven the sedan, and are satisfied with its powertrain. It’s not sporty by any means, and struggles at highway speeds sometimes, but for the most part, the Versa sedan has respectable performance for a car at this price point.

The base Versa sedan has a five-speed manual transmission. Generally, cars with manual transmissions are more fun to drive than models with automatics, but reviewers haven’t made similar observations with the Nissan Versa because they didn’t test the base model, which comes with a manual transmission.

A continuously variable transmission (CVT) is optional, and reviewers are surprised that they actually like it because CVTs usually skimp on performance for better fuel economy. The EPA hasn’t released fuel economy data for the Versa sedan, but Nissan says it should average 30/38 mpg city/highway, which is pretty good for the class, but not as good as the 30/40 mpg ratings on the Hyundai Accent.

The second-generation 1.6-liter HR16DE 4-cylinder engine includes a range of cutting-edge technologies, making it one of the most advanced powerplants in class. For example, while the average engine uses only one injector per cylinder to inject fuel, the new 2012 Nissan Versa Sedan engine is equipped with two streamlined injectors mounted near the inlet valve for each cylinder. This dual injector system allows a wider injection of fuel, with the smaller nozzles delivering a finer spray (approximately 57 percent finer than the previous generation single injector design’s particle size) to help achieve stable combustion.

Hatchback styles of the Versa are propelled by the same 122-horsepower, 1.8-liter four cylinder engine as the previous year. Four speed automatic and six speed manual transmissions are available for the hatchback. The sedan gets a slight upgrade with a 109-horsepower, 1.6-liter four cylinder engine, giving it slightly more power than the 2011 version. Transmission options for the sedan include a five speed manual and a CVT. Source: usnews.rankingsandreviews.com, newcars.com.
