MORE SEDAN PER DOLLAR. THERE'S A PLACE FOR EVERYTHING
The world has changed. Small is big, smart is sexy, and living well isn't about how much you spend. What's the perfect car for this new world? way to roll? The 2016 Nissan Versa Sedan. The spacious interior offers unexpected leg and headroom to seat five comfortably, and the spacious glovebox provides plenty of convenient storage space.
With 14.9 cubic feet of room, Versa's trunk lets you bring along everything you need, and keep it safe from prying eyes. [*] And if you need more space for stuff, both door panels have huge pockets where you can put everything from maps to water bottles.
Advanced Engine Technology and an Efficient V-Platform
The 2016 Versa Sedan utilizes Nissan's global lightweight ''V'' platform and is powered by a 1.6-liter HR16DE 4-cylinder engine rated at 109 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 107 lb-ft of torque at 4,400 rpm. The engine features a range of fuel efficiency enhancing technologies, including a dual injector system that allows a wider injection of fuel than a traditional single-injection system. The smaller nozzles deliver a finer spray to help achieve stable combustion.
The dual injector system also allows the use of around half the amount of rare metals in the catalyzer by reducing the amount of unburned fuel and hydrocarbon emissions.
The compact, lightweight engine also employs a twin Continuously Variable valve Timing Control System (CVTCS) mounted on intake and exhaust camshafts (versus conventional CVTC systems, which are mounted only on the intake camshaft).
Using CVTCS on the exhaust camshaft increases thermal efficiency, decreases inhalation resistance and offers an approximate four percent improvement in fuel efficiency (over the previous engine design). The engine also includes a piston oiling jet, specially tuned piston top shape and expanded exhaust manifold diameter.
The 1.6-liter engine is matched with a choice of three transmissions – a 5-speed manual transmission or 4-speed automatic (S models only), or a next-generation Xtronic transmission with D-mode step shift programming. The Xtronic design 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. It incorporates an auxiliary planetary gearbox to broaden the effective gear ratio helping improve efficiency. The Xtronic transmission's gear ratio of 7.3:1 is broader than those of typical 7-speed automatic transmissions.
PROTECTION AT EVERY TURN
Nissan Advanced Air Bag System (AABS)
Six air bags are standard to help protect your most valuable cargo. Two dual-stage supplemental front air bags equipped with seat belt sensors and an occupant-classification sensor. Supplemental air bags for side-impact protection are built into each front seat. And two roof-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental air bags to help provide head protection for both rows of outboard occupants.
Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) and Traction Control System (TCS)
This standard feature—sometimes called stability control—continuously monitors your steering and braking actions, senses any oversteer or understeer, and helps compensate by reducing engine speed and/or applying brake pressure to specific wheels. In addition, Traction Control System can sense front wheel slip or spin and responds by instantly helping reduce throttle which helps you both regain grip and maintain your steered path.
Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist (BA)
Versa Sedan’s standard advanced ABS system gives confident, secure braking when you need it most. Electronic Brake force Distribution adjusts brake proportioning to compensate for added weight from passengers or cargo. Brake Assist [*] “reads” how quickly the brakes are engaged and immediately applies maximum available power boost for braking.
COOL TECH YOU DIDN’T EXPECT, BUT WILL COME TO DEPEND ON.
NissanConnect with Navigation and Mobile Apps
The available NissanConnect with Navigation and Mobile Apps is equipped with innovative features like hands-free phone capability, streaming audio, a USB [*] connection port, enhanced voice recognition [*], and navigation system with a 5.8-inch color display that serves up points of interest like restaurants, gas stations, and ATMs. Now with SiriusXM® [*] Traffic and SiriusXM® Travel Link®.
Back up with confidence with the Versa's optional RearView Monitor. A discreet color camera mounted on the rear of the vehicle lets you see what's directly behind you, using the screen in front of you.
Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System
The standard Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System has voice-recognition which allows you to make and receive calls through the stereo speaker system with just the touch of a button on the steering wheel. No headset needed and you can even pre-program your favorite numbers or speak the digits for a no-fumble phone call.
USB Connection Port
Plug your iPod® or USB thumb drive into the available USB connection port and control the functions through the audio system or touch-screen monitor.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) with Easy-Fill Tire Alert
When it comes to your tire pressure, Versa's Tire Pressure Monitoring System takes away the guesswork. A symbol on your dash illuminates when the pressure is low. And when you're filling your tires, the available Easy-Fill Tire Alert lets you know – with a friendly beep – when they've got the right amount of air.
