Following last week's rumor, Nissan has released images and details with the facelifted Versa Sedan which will get its first public outing next week at New York Auto Show.

The sub-compact Japanese sedan has received a mildly redesigned front with standard chromed plating on the grille and a new look for the fog lights, while SV and SL trims feature different side mirror designs (with built-in turn signals on the SL). SV models can now be configured with exclusive 15-inch V-spoke alloys. Nissan describes the car's rear as being more dynamic although changes are very subtle and reside mostly in the rear bumper.

On the inside there's an updated center stack derived from the Versa Note, a revised meter display with white LED, along with a reshaped steering wheel featuring audio and Bluetooth controls as standard equipment. S and S Plus now come with a wide AM/FM/CD audio system with AUX and RDS support. These trim levels also benefit from a different seat fabric, a passenger-side vanity mirror and standard assist grips.

Power of the 2015 Versa Sedan comes from the same 4-cylinder, 1.6-liter naturally-aspirated engine with 109 bhp (81 kW) at 6,000 rpm and 107 lb-ft (145 Nm) from 4,400 rpm. It works with a five-speed manual, a four-speed automatic (for S trim) or an Xtronic featuring D-mode step shift programming. The Xtronic-equipped model does 31 mpg city / 40 mpg highway / 35 mpg combined, followed by the five-speed manual model at 27 / 36 / 30 and the four-speed auto model at 26 / 35 / 30.

Slated to go on sale on April 16, the 2015 Nissan Versa Sedan will be available in four trim levels: S, S Plus, SV and SL, with prices beginning at 11,990 USD.

Full details can be found in the attached press release.
