Autoblog, the car will have 108 horsepower and be mated to a CVT. They said EPA ratings should be around 28 city, 34 highway. They also mention the word "turbo," and since Nissan already has the turbo mill in the Juke, perhaps that could happen.
I'm not very fond of the new Tiida/Versa's styling, and 24 city MPG isn't terribly impressive. I am looking forward to hearing more specs so as to better judge the size of the vehicle. How much more has it grown (or shrank)? Will the USDM get the 108 hp mill, or will it get more power, like the current Versa? We'll see. The Versa has been a strong subcompact seller, so it will be interesting to see how this model pans out in the U.S. Also, will there be a sedan variant?
