2014 Nissan Versa Hatchback and sedan

2014 Nissan Versa Press Kit: At a Glance

The second-generation Nissan Versa Sedan, now in its third year, continues to redefine entry-level car value. It combines a sophisticated exterior design, well-appointed interior and exceptional room for five adults - including more rear legroom than some mid-size sedans.

For the 2014 model year, enhancements include the addition of standard 16-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, tricot headliner, 4.3-inch LCD audio display and SiriusXM Satellite Radio (SiriusXM subscription required, sold separately) for Versa Sedan SL models; standard 60/40-split fold-down rear seat and key fob trunk release for Versa Sedan SV models; and tachometer and low rolling resistance tires for Versa Sedan S models. In addition, all models receive a suspension and steering tuning change, along with revised interior finishers. Versa Sedan SV and SL models also receive a new high-gloss black B-pillar treatment and improved seat comfort (bottom cushion and foam density).

The optional SV Convenience Package has been revised to add 15-inch aluminum-alloy wheels and tricot fabric headliner to the previous Bluetooth Hands-free Phone System, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, audio upgrade (MP3, aux jack, RDS), map lights, front passenger vanity mirror. The SL Tech Package now includes RearView
Monitor plus NissanConnectSM with Navigation with 5.8-inch color touch-screen display, Nissan Voice Recognition for audio and navigation, NavTraffic and NavWeather, POIs powered by Google, Google Send-to-Car, Streaming audio via Bluetooth and Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant.

The 2014 Versa Sedan is again built on Nissan's front-wheel drive global "V" platform, which utilizes nearly 20 percent fewer platform components and weighs around 150 pounds less than the previous generation "B" platform.

The standard second-generation 1.6-liter HR16DE 4-cylinder engine includes a range of cutting-edge technologies, such as a dual fuel injector system that 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 more complete combustion. The engine also utilizes a twin Continuously Variable Timing Control (CVTC) system mounted on both intake and exhaust camshafts (conventionally mounted only on the intake camshaft), similar to the system used on the flagship Nissan Maxima. The engine is rated at 109 horsepower and 107 lb-ft of torque.  

The available next-generation Xtronic CVT transmission utilizes an auxiliary gearbox using planetary gearing, helping enhance efficiency. 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 CVT 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.

Versa Sedan is available in four models - S (5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic), S Plus CVT, SV CVT and SL CVT.
