And many ways to sum them all up. But perhaps a simple statement is best: Innovation Upsized. Yet many buyers are disappointed in what they find — vehicles rife with compromise," says Judy Wheeler, Director of Marketing, Nissan Canada, Inc.
At a Glance: 2013 Nissan Versa Sedan
Small When You Need It, Big Where You Want It Knowing that entry-level vehicles are used as "workhorses" — for commuting on weekdays, errand running on weekends and transporting family and friends all week long — the designers of the new Versa Sedan sought to combine five-passenger practicality with a high degree of comfort and refinement. So we invested in areas that they see and touch most — like available Fine Vision instrumentation, quality fabrics, chrome trim and comfortable seating for front and rear seat passengers.
Versa Sedan has, for example, more rear legroom than some mid-size sedans. And the trunk design focuses on useable space, taking into consideration everything from the size of the hinges to the shape of the sidewalls. Other available interior features include power windows with driver's one-touch down, speed-sensing auto door locks, remote trunk release lever and steering wheel-mounted audio controls.
One interior colour is available, charcoal. The Versa Sedan's new exterior design is also a departure from most current compact sedans, offering a fresh, refreshing design character that is both sophisticated and highly aerodynamic. To achieve the new 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, 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 trunk lid help give the new Versa Sedan excellent aerodynamics. Models equipped with the CVT transmission offer a low coefficient of drag of just 0. In addition, to help ensure superb functionality, fresh ideas were addressed in the initial stage between the designers and the engineering team. For example, the indented line in the middle of the Versa Sedan's sweeping roofline is not just a design feature, but a functional innovation that helps reduce the amplitude of the roof panel vibrations in order to create a quiet cabin interior without the use of reinforcement devices called "mass bumpers.
Other exterior features include a fixed roof antenna, body-colour front and rear fascias and available chrome-accented grille, blacked-out B-pillar, chrome door handles and front fog lights. Next-Generation Efficiency and an All-New V Platform One of the biggest challenges in designing a compact sedan, of course, is where to put everything — people, cargo, engine, transmission and other mechanical components.

Often the solution is to gather a fraction of an inch here, a fraction there and hope they add up to a usable benefit. For the new Versa Sedan, the approach was a little more radical — create a totally new global platform and drivetrain, reducing the size of engine and transmission, for example, while expanding the occupant envelope. The Versa Sedan's all-new front-wheel drive global "V" platform, designated "V" for Versatile, utilizes nearly 20 per cent fewer platform components and weighs around 68kgs pounds less than the previous "B" platform.
The second-generation 1.
For example, while the average engine uses only one injector per cylinder to inject fuel, the new 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 per cent finer than the previous generation single injector design's particle size to help achieve stable combustion.
The new compact, lighter weight engine also utilizes a twin Continuously Variable Timing Control CVTC system mounted on both intake and exhaust ports versus conventional CVTC systems which are mounted only on the intake port , similar to the system used on the flagship Nissan Maxima. Using a CVTC on the outlet port increases thermal efficiency, decreases inhalation resistance and offers an approximate 4 per cent improvement in fuel efficiency.
Other enhancements include the addition of a piston oiling jet, tuning of the piston top shape and expansion of the exhaust manifold diameter. The new 1.
The Versa Sedan is available with a 5-speed manual transmission 1. The CVT allows continuous change of the transmission gear ratio by connecting the two pulleys with a metallic belt and changing their diameter by using hydraulic pressure. For the first time in the world, the new CVT design adds an auxiliary gearbox using planetary gearing, helping improve efficiency.
The new CVT design also features a transmission ratio of 7.
Friction is reduced by about 30 per cent, weight by about 13 per cent and overall size by about 10 per cent versus the previous Versa Sedan CVT design. Fuel economy for the Versa Sedan is estimated at 6.
