2015 Nissan Versa Sedan At A Glance (Press Release)

At A Glance: 2015 Nissan Versa Sedan

As the best-selling vehicle* for four years in a row (calendar years 2010 through 2013) in the highly competitive entry level segment, the Nissan Versa Sedan could stand pat on its reputation for high value, exceptional roominess and mid-size vehicle technology without a mid-size price. Yet the quest for improvement continues.

Following the introduction of an all-new Versa Note hatchback for the 2014 model year, the Versa Sedan receives an extensive makeover for 2015 – including new front and rear fascias, a range of interior refinements and new packaging content.

Most prominent of the changes to the 2015 Versa Sedan is the bold new front end treatment anchored by larger headlights, a more substantial looking fascia and standard chrome plating on the grille – all of which bring the vehicle closer in look to the Nissan Sentra, Altima and Maxima sedans.

The list of exterior upgrades also includes a new fog light finisher design, new side mirror designs for SV and SL trim levels (with integrated turn signals for SL), and a more dynamic rear fascia design. A new, Versa Sedan-exclusive 15-inch V-spoke aluminum-alloy wheel design is also available with SV models.

Interior enhancements for the 2015 model year include a new center stack shape, which is similar to that found on the sporty Versa Note, a revised meter display with white LED display (previously orange illumination color) and a new, more substantial, steering wheel with standard audio and Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System controls. Versa Sedan S and S Plus grades feature a wide 2-DIN AM/FM/CD audio system with standard auxiliary-in and Radio Data System (RDS), standard assist grips, a passenger-side vanity mirror and new seat fabric.

Versa Sedan SV adds an outside temperature display, USB/iPod® controls, upgraded fabric headliner, map light with key-linked illuminated entry and silver finishers on the center instrument panel cluster. SL models include Nissan Intelligent Key® with Push Button Ignition and an AM/FM/CD/USB-iPod® audio system with 5.0-inch display and NissanConnectSM with Mobile Apps.

The 2015 Versa Sedan’s standard 1.6-liter HR16DE 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; 27/36/30 mpg with the 5-speed manual transmission; and 26/35/30 mpg with the 4-speed automatic transmission.

The 2015 Versa Sedan is available in four models – S (5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic), S Plus (Xtronic only), SV (Xtronic only) and SL (Xtronic only). Highlights of the 2015 Nissan Versa Sedan include:
