Improved Fuel Economy on the 2012 Versa

The Nissan Versa is a choice vehicle for drivers looking for leading edge innovation and extreme efficiency. And, it only gets better for the 2012 model year.

Hawkinson Nissan is excited to share news that the redesigned Nissan Versa, expected to hit showroom floors late this summer, will deliver a fuel economy of 28 mpg city/34 mpg highway. That means two additional miles per gallon (mpg) for city driving and four additional mpg for highway driving compared to the 2011 Nissan Versa, currently available at our Chicago Area Nissan dealership.

Helping the revamped 2012 Nissan Versa to achieve this boost in fuel economy is its new V-platform. With 20 percent fewer parts compared to the outgoing B-platform Versa, it's weighs about 150 pounds less. The Versa sedan will, in fact, be the first example of Nissan's new small-car V platform, which partner, Renault SA, is expected to share in markets worldwide. According to long-range production forecasting by analysts at global consultancy, Pricewaterhouse Coopers, the V could be the world's largest-selling platform as soon as 2015.

Powered by the same 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine used in the 2011 Nissan Versa, the 2012 model, gains Nissan's dual-fuel injector system -  representing the first-ever usage of the technology in the U.S. As the name implies, the system uses two fuel injectors on each cylinder, doubling the fuel streams that feed into the engine.
