The 2014 Versa Sedan is available now at Nissan dealers nationwide.
As in previous years, the 2014 Versa Sedan provides exceptional value, along with a range of popular features including a standard 1.6-liter DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine with dual injector system and twin Continuously Variable Timing Control (CVTC), and available air conditioning, 6-way adjustable driver's seat, and AM/FM/CD/Aux-in audio system.

The Versa S is rated at 27/36/30 mpg city/highway/combined with 5-speed manual transmission and 26/35/30 mpg city/highway/combined with the 4-speed automatic transmission.
Enhancements for the 2014 Versa Sedan include the addition of standard 16-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, tri-cot headliner, 4.3-inch display audio and SiriusXM Satellite Radio (SiriusXM subscription required, sold separately) for Versa Sedan SL models; standard 60/40-split fold-down rear seat and key fob trunk release for Versa Sedan SV models; and tachometer and low rolling resistance tires for Versa Sedan S models.

About the 2014 Nissan Versa Sedan
The second-generation Nissan Versa Sedan, now in its third year, continues to redefine entry-level car value. It combines a sophisticated exterior design, well-appointed interior and exceptional room for five adults – including more rear legroom than many mid-size sedans.
The 2014 Versa Sedan is again built on Nissan's front-wheel drive global 'V' platform, which utilizes nearly 20 percent fewer platform components and weighs around 150 pounds less than the previous generation 'B' platform. The standard second-generation 1.6-liter HR16DE 4-cylinder engine includes a range of cutting-edge technologies, such as a dual fuel injector system that allows a wider injection of fuel, with the smaller nozzles delivering a finer spray (approximately 57 percent finer than the previous generation single injector design's particle size) to help achieve more complete combustion. The engine also utilizes a twin Continuously Variable Timing Control (CVTC) system mounted on both intake and exhaust ports (conventionally mounted only on the intake port), similar to the system used on the flagship Nissan Maxima. The engine is rated at 109 horsepower and 107 lb-ft of torque.
The available next-generation Xtronic CVT® transmission utilizes an auxiliary gearbox using planetary gearing, helping enhance efficiency. It also features a transmission ratio of 7.3:1, which is broader than those of conventional CVTs and even typical 7-speed automatic transmissions. Fuel economy with the CVT transmission is rated at 31 mpg City, 40 mpg Highway and 35 mpg Combined; 27/36/30 mpg with the 5-speed manual transmission; and 26/35/30 mpg with the 4-speed automatic transmission.
The 2014 Versa Sedan is available in four models – S (5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic), S Plus CVT, SV CVT and SL CVT. Versa is also available in a 5-door 2012 Versa Hatchback version.
