For 2012 Nissan has redesigned the Versa Sedan and given it a number of fuel-saving improvements, including a smaller, more efficient engine, transmissions with a wider spread of ratios and taller top gears, aerodynamic improvements, and more.
Even with its fuel-stingy remake, the 2012 Versa Sedans still aren't among the best in their class, though. While many subcompacts now get 40 mpg on the highway, the Versa Sedan gets 38 mpg highway at best (30/38).
Versa hatchbacks are carried over from 2011, and they get an unimpressive 26 mpg city, 31 highway with a manual transmission, or 28/34 with the CVT.
The 2012 Nissan Versa Sedan gets much-improved gas mileage, but in hatchback form especially the Versa still falls short of other subcompact models.
