Nissan updates the Versa for the 2013MY

Article by Christian A., on July 20, 2012

Nissan has updated the 2013 model year Versa sedan model with a reprogrammed continuously variable transmission (CVT) to achieve improved fuel efficiency as well as a four-speed automatic transmission option. It’s quite unexpected for Nissan to add a four-speed automatic option since it already provides a CVT automatic and a five-speed manual option.

However, the Versa sedan becomes more versatile since the CVT asks for a $2,130 premium compared to the standard five-speed manual. Meanwhile, the four-speed automatic will probably be sold with a $1,000 markup. When it comes to the reprogrammed CVT, Nissan claimed an increase of two mpg on the highway, raising the rating to 31 mpg city, 40 mpg highway.

The five-speed manual has a fuel economy rating of 27 mpg city, 36 mpg highway while the four-speed automatic is expected to offer 25 mpg city, 35 mpg highway. It appears that the CVT would be a better investment since the price premium will pay itself off two years in gas money.

The Versa sedan model’s exterior will get a new decklid spoiler and improved underbody ducting. Nissan is expected to release the official pricing data nearer to the August launch of the 2013 Versa.
