2015 Nissan Versa Sedan
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. 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. Enhancements for the 2015 model year include a new center stack shape, 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.
The NissanConnect with Navigation and Mobile Apps system, which is offered as part of the SL Technology Package, includes a 5.8-inch color touch-screen display, Nissan Voice Recognition for audio and navigation, SiriusXM Traffic and SiriusXM Travel Link. Available apps include Facebook, Pandora, iHeartRadio and Google Search.
The 2015 Versa Sedan is powered by a 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine rated at 109 horsepower at 6,000 rpm. The 1.6-liter engine is matched with a choice of three transmissions: a five-speed manual transmission or 4-speed automatic (S models only), or a next-generation Xtronic transmission with D-mode step shift programming. All Xtronic-equipped 2015 Versa Sedans carry the PUREDRIVE designation, worn by Nissan vehicles that achieve an EPA fuel economy rating of 40 miles per gallon.
Base model estimated mpg: 27/36. Estimated starting price: $11,990.
