How Powerful is the 2020 Nissan Versa?
The Nissan Versa sedan has long been known as an entry-level sedan. However, even with the low barrier to entry with its affordable price tag, some drivers might have been looking for a little more in terms of performance and features. For the 2020 model year, the Versa received a large update with new features and technologies. So, just how powerful is the 2020 Nissan Versa?
Performance of the New 2020 Versa
Available in each of the three trim levels of the 2020 Nissan Versa, the S, SV and SR, each sedan comes equipped with a next generation 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine rated at 122 horsepower and 114 lb-ft of torque. This new engine offers a 12 percent and 7 percent increase in horsepower and torque ratings respectively, as the 2019 Versa’s 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine was able to generate just 109 horsepower and 107 lb-ft of torque.
A lot of the focus for the third generation Versa was on technology. Not only does the model offer improved performance, but the new Versa offers the available Nissan Safety Shield 360 suite, including features such as Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Rear Automatic Braking, Lane Departure Warning, High Beam Assist, Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert to name a few of the new available technologies.
