The Japanese automaker Nissan has revealed details about both the 5-door hatchback and 4-door sedan 2010 Versa. Both models will go on sale starting in September of 2009, and start at $9,990 for the sedan and $13,150 for the practical hatchback model.
For 2010 the Nissan Versa gets a slight restyling with an upgraded grill, new interior fabric patterns, white back lit instrument cluster with Nissan’s familiar reddish orange glow. The Versa 1.8 S wears a new set of 15-inch wheel covers and new 1.8 SL hatchback gets a new set of 16-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.
The entry level Nissan Versa Sedan 1.6 Base and Versa Sedan 1.6 models are powered by a 107 HP 1.6 Liter DOHC 4-cylinder engine, while the Versa Hatchback and Sedan 1.8 S and 1.8 SL offer a 122 HP 1.8 Liter DOHC 4-cylinder engine standard. An added safety measure for the new Nissan is an Anti-lock Braking System that now comes standard on the 1.8 S model, while sticking around as a standard offering on the 1.8 SL.
The rest of the Nissan Versa’s standard equipment list includes: Nissan Intelligent Key, Bluetooth Hands-free Phone System, XM Satellite Radio (XM subscription required, sold separately) and an audio system with Clarion speakers and Rockford Fosgate-powered subwoofer. All these amenities add up to make the Nissan Versa an affordably practical ride.
