The 1.6L Nissan Versa Sedan will start at just $9,990Enlarge Photo
The engine in the least expensive Versa Sedan is a 1.6L four-cylinder petrol unit that is rated at 107hp (80kW) and achieves fuel economy of 34mpg (6.91L/100km) on the highway and 26mpg (9L/100km) in the city when equipped with a five-speed manual.
Other models in the lineup include a more powerful 1.8L version. The Versa is also available with a four-speed automatic, which achieves slightly worse fuel economy figures than the manual.
Earlier this week, Chrysler revealed its own rebadged version of the Versa Sedan that it plans to sell under its Dodge label. The car is called the Trazo and it will be limited to select Latin American markets, including Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay. It is unlikely that the Dodge Trazo will be sold in the U.S., however Chrysler has plans to launch other rebadged Nissans, including a possible mid-size sedan in the future.
