2015 Nissan Versa Sedan

If you’ve been hoping that the 2015 Nissan Versa Sedan would adopt something of the Versa Note hatchback’s styling aesthetic, consider your hopes dashed. This is the facelifted four-door Versa, which is set to make its official debut next week at the New York Auto Show.

You can make your own minds up on the exterior rework, which is a fairly gentle evolution of the current model. The headlights and a new, familial grille are the two big changes for the front of the Versa that give it a bit of Altima style. Out back, the headlights are slightly tweaked, while a sportier rear bumper is the most noticeable change. The top-end Versa SL also adds new mirrors, complete with Audi-ish integrated turn signals, while the Versa SV adds new 15-inch alloys.

Tweaks for the Versa’s huge interior are kept to a minimum, and constitute a new steering wheel and a tweak to the center stack, along with some improved materials. Like the Versa Note, Nissan has fitted the NissanConnect infotainment system, although it’s only available on the Versa SL.

Not much has been done under the hood – a 1.6-liter four-cylinder continues to churn out a meager 109 horsepower and 107 pound-feet of torque, while the three transmission choices – five-speed manual, four-speed auto or Xtronic continuously variable transmission – remain unchanged. Considering this, peak fuel efficiency is the same as 2014, at 31 miles per gallon in the city and 40 mpg on the highway for the CVT-equipped model.

Take a look up top for Nissan’s gallery of images, and then scroll down for the full press release. We’ll have more on the freshened Versa next week, when we check it out in NYC.
