2012 Nissan Versa
THE BIG LITTLE CAR
Stretch things out – Versa has class-leading legroom
The world has changed. Small is big, smart is sexy, and living well isn’t about how much you spend. What’s the perfect car for this new way to roll? The all-new 2012 Versa Sedan: The spacious interior offers unexpected leg and headroom to sit five comfortably, and the spacious glove box provides plenty of convenient storage space.
No need to borrow a truck – this trunk is massive
With class-leading 14.8 cubic feet of room, Versa’s trunk lets you bring along everything you need, and keep it safe from prying eyes. Versa 1.6 SL’s 60/40 split fold-down rear seat gives you great flexibility to carry people and cargo. The huge pass-through means tall and wide items are always welcome along for the ride.
Nissan’s commitment to a greener world – PURE DRIVE
The 2012 Versa is the first Nissan in North America to wear the PUREDRIVE badge. A key part of our commitment to produce eco-friendly vehicles, the PUREDRIVE initiative focuses on improving fuel economy and reducing CO2 emission levels. For any vehicle to wear PUREDRIVE badge, Nissan requires that it exceed the industry average Federal CAFE fuel economy standards for model year 2016.
The fact that the all-new Versa sedan exceeds that standard four years ahead of schedule tells you how seriously we take the future, and also how exceptionally efficient and clean the Versa’s technology allows it to be. And since it’s a Nissan, it’s also great fun to drive! The Versa is truly a win-win situation.
The intersection at Efficient and Fun
It’s efficient and it’s fun, and with the industry’s first mass-produced dual fuel-injector per cylinder design, it’s a true technological achievement. Versa’s critical engine components are micro finished to reduce friction and provide a quicker response, while variable valve timing continuously adjusts engine output to deliver no-nonsense acceleration with fuel-sipping 38 MPG efficiency.
The automatic for the future
This single, adaptable belt does away with fixed gear ratios. Just put your Versa into “drive” and glide away. The 2012 Versa is equipped with a next-generation CVT to provide smoother performance, quicker acceleration and better fuel economy than ever before.
The new way to steer
Versa’s efficient electric power steering system eliminates the traditional, engine-power-draining hydraulic steering pump and instead draws its power directly from the battery. This subtle difference helps to increase both fuel economy and engine performance.
Make your connection
Your Versa keeps you connected. Make or receive calls with a touch of a button on the steering wheel – all while your phone stays tucked away.
You can see for miles, and your Versa can count all of them
All the key information you need is at your fingertips, including service interval information, distance to empty, and average and instantaneous MPG. And since Versa gets up to 38 MPG, it’s great fun to watch those big numbers rack up.
They say knowledge is power
With Versa’s available Nissan Navigation System, you’ve got plenty of knowledge. Built right into the dash is a 5-inch QVGA touch screen that displays your incoming Bluetooth calls, MP3 / WMA song info, XM NavTraffic updates and vivid 3-D perspective map viewing. Plug your iPod or USB thumb drive into USB input and control the music functions through the audio system or touch-screen.
Surrounded by safety
Six air bags are standard to help protect your most valuable cargo. Two dual-stage supplemental front air bags equipped with seat belt sensors and an occupant-classification sensor. Supplemental air bags for side-impact protection are built into each front seat. Two roof-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental air bags help provide head protection for both rows of outboard occupants.
Helping you stay safe, every way we can
Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) – A standard ABS systems gives confidence, secure braking when you need it most.
Electronic Brake force Distribution adjusts proportioning to compensate for added weight from passengers or cargo, and adjusts as fuel is consumed.
Brake Assist reads how quickly the brakes are engaged and immediately applies maximum available power boost for braking.
Brake Override Technology – designed to help slow down you vehicle and bring it to an emergency stop. Brake Override Technology overrides the accelerator and reduces power when the accelerator and brake are applied.
Confidence Now Yours
Vehicle Dynamic Control continuously monitors your steering and braking actions, senses any over steer or under steer, and compensates by reducing engine speed and/or applying brake pressure to specific wheels. When conditions like rain or snow call for extra grip, the standard Traction Control System can sense a front wheel spin and responds by instantly helping reduce throttle which helps you both regain grip and maintain control of the road.
The 2012 Versa Sedan is the first vehicle in North America to utilize Nissan’s advanced PUREDRIVE technology. With PUREDRIVE’s innovative fuel-saving features, Versa’s CO2 emissions are reduced.
Experience incomparably smooth automatic shifting with Nissan’s Continuously Variable Transmission.
Brake Override Technology
A vital component of the Nissan Safety Shield, Brake Override Technology has been standard on every Nissan vehicle since 2005.
