From Nissan press:
The Nissan Versa enters its fifth year of production on a roll. Along with an extensive slate of exterior, interior and content enhancements last year, the stylish and roomy Versa Sedan and Hatchback added an impressive list of 2010 awards -- including being named a Consumers Digest "Best Buy" for the fourth straight year*, as well as being chosen as a Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick**. The 2010 Versa was also named a "Top 10 Least Expensive Vehicles to Own" by ForbesAutos.com***.
For 2011, Versa returns essentially unchanged -- once again delivering an exceptional combination of value, fuel economy, roominess, an impressive array of available technology and fun-to-drive performance. The enhancements for 2011 include a new 6-disc CD player for the Sedan 1.8 S and the addition of Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) for the Versa Sedan 1.6 (except 1.6 Base).
The front-wheel drive Versa again features one of the highest standard horsepower/torque ratings (Versa 1.8 models) and one of the largest interiors in the entry-level segment. Versa also offers one of the lowest priced new vehicle models available in the United States, the high-value Versa Sedan 1.6 Base with a 107-horsepower 1.6-liter DOHC 4-cylinder engine and 5-speed manual transmission.
The Versa Sedan 1.6 is also available with additional standard features and a 4-speed automatic transmission.
The 2011 Versa Hatchback and Sedan 1.8 S and 1.8 SL models are equipped with a 122-horsepower 1.8-liter DOHC 4-cylinder engine. Versa Sedan 1.8 S models are offered with a choice of 6-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmissions. The Sedan 1.8 SL is offered only with the 4-speed automatic, while the Hatchback 1.8 SL is available exclusively with Nissan's advanced Xtronic CVT transmission.
