How Is the Fuel Economy of the 2022 Nissan Versa? 

Equipped with the Nissan brand’s pathbreaking dual injector system per cylinder, the engine has enhanced fuel economy and reduced emissions. Compared to conventional injector designs, this system uses injectors with smaller nozzles, which leads to smaller fuel droplets entering the engine and improving combustion stability. Fuel economy is further heightened due to a compression ratio of 10.4:1, implying that the engine attempts to squeeze maximum energy from the fuel. 

With the 5-speed manual transmission, the 2022 Versa delivers a fuel economy of 27 mpg in the city, 35 mpg on the highway, and 30 mpg combined. Meanwhile, the Xtronic-equipped models achieve 32 mpg in the city, 40 mpg on the highway, and 35 mpg combined. 

Smooth responsiveness and superior handling of the 2022 Nissan Versa leave a lasting impression. For reviewing the performance of the 2022 Nissan Versa, you could schedule a test drive at Glendale Nissan in Glendale Heights, IL!
