The 2012 Nissan Versa Sedan has just got priced. The Japanese automaker’s entry-level compact sedan starts at 10,990 USD and some of its improved features include a new dual injector system and sub-planetary CVT design, a new interior that received a boost in quality (don’t expect to see the a competitor for the S class here), as well a redesigned dashboard and a new instrument panel.
Even though the new Versa Sedan is 0.6 inch shorter than the previous generation model, with a wheelbase and width the same as before (102,4 inch and 66.7 inch respectively), the automaker says there is now more legroom than in premium sedans like the Lexus LS460, BMW 5-series or Mercedes  E Class.
Under the bonnet the 2012 Nissan Versa Sedan features a 1.6-litre HR16DE 4-cylinder engine producing 109 HP @ 6,000 rpm and 107 lb-ft @ 4,400 rpm, all of which get put to work via a five-speed manual gearbox (Xtronic CVT also available).
The engine mentioned above is also responsible for some decent consumption figures (estimated at 30 mpg combined with the CVT transmission and 31.5 mpg combined with the five-speed manual).   
Sales for the 2012 Nissan Versa Sedan will start in a few months.
