Nissan thoroughly reworked the Versa for the 2012 model year. The Versa wears new styling outside and in. Built on a new platform, the new Versa is slightly shorter in length and height. Passenger volume has decreased slightly, but the sedan has an additional cubic foot of room in the trunk. The updated 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine uses two injectors per cylinder to reduce the amount of fuel used. Combined with the new CVT transmission, the Versa is expected to be more fuel efficient. Nissan estimates an EPA rating of 30 MPG City, and 38 MPG highway.
The Nissan GT-R benefits from numerous enhancements for 2012. The front and rear fascia changes may update the appearance, but also add downforce for improved handling and further the reduce the coefficient of drag to 0.26. Horsepower has increased to 530-bhp and torque has increased to 448 lb-ft. The GT-R also wears redesigned wheels that are lighter. A new Black Edition trim package is added.
