Fort Lauderdale, Florida - Nissan’s Micra hatchback transformed from bland to bold in its latest generation, and now it’s the turn of its sedan counterpart.
Nissan has pulled the covers off its new-generation Versa sedan, and given that the previous version was identical to the Almera in all but name, it’s highly likely that the car you see here will also become the new Almera. We are currently awaiting confirmation from Nissan South Africa on whether there are any local plans for the new sedan.
"This third-generation Versa design is all about the proportion and stance, to the point where we expect people to look at it and say, ‘Wow, is that a Versa?'" says program design director Giovanny Arroba.
"The wheels are pushed out, there's an imposing grille presence, everything about it says lower, wider, longer."
The new Versa closely resembles the new Clio-based Micra hatch that it's based on, both inside and out, and not only does it look a whole lot more dramatic than its predecessor, it also makes strides in technology, safety and refinement, Nissan claims.
