Considering that innovation is the key pillar of Nissan engineering, it should come as no surprise that the all-new 2012 Nissan Versa is one of the most innovative vehicles in its class. But before you visit your local Wilmington Nissan dealership to purchase the 2012 Versa, you’ll need to decide which body style is right for you: sedan or hatchback.
To help you decide which Nissan Versa is best for you, here is an overview of some of the key differences between the sedan and hatchback models:
The 2012 Nissan Versa sedan is powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 109 horsepower and nets a combined fuel economy of 33 mpg. The 2012 Nissan Versa hatchback, on the other hand, is powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder that produces a peppier 122 horsepower. If you’re looking for more power, the hatchback delivers – however, its fuel economy ratings aren’t quite as high as the sedan’s.
- Cargo Space
Although both the sedan and hatchback models offer real stretch-out room for five full-size adult passengers, there is the issue of cargo space to keep in mind when shopping for a new Nissan Versa. If you’re able to make do with the sedan that you currently have, then you may find the enormous 14.8 cubic foot trunk inside the Versa sedan more than satisfies your cargo needs. However, if you live an active lifestyle or have tons of gear to carry around, then the hatchback is probably more your style.
- Handling and Drivability
For all of their differences, the hatchback and sedan versions of the 2012 Nissan Versa handle quite similarly. Both models feature ripple-control shocks and rebound springs to help damp out unwanted motions and vibrations for a quieter, more controlled ride.
