In a Nissan Versa, how many cylinders are in the engine?
My wife wants to get our daughter a Nissan Versa as her first car since they’re so affordable. We live in a bigger city and she’ll have to drive on freeways pretty often, though, so I’m wondering if the engine is sufficient for highway driving. How many cylinders does a Versa have?
- The first hatchback iterations of the Versa contained a 1.8-liter four-cylinder producing 122 horsepower with a standard six-speed manual transmission. The first Versa sedan, however, came with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder capable of 107 horsepower and paired with either a manual or an automatic transmission.
- The second generation of Versas (from 2012 to 2019) featured a 1.6-liter four-cylinder that produced 109 horsepower. The base trim came with a five-speed manual transmission or an optional four-speed automatic transmission.
- The current Versa generation saw a boost in horsepower with a 122-hp 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. The base transmission is still a five-speed manual, but most models are equipped with an automatic continuously variable transmission.
