    2012 Nissan Versa - the new Versa is more efficient and better equipped than the previous model, and although not the best its competitive pricing helped make it the best selling subcompact in August.

    Nissan will have to offer a manual Versa hatch with better EPA numbers than they currently have to get my attention. Also , who would actually trust/buy a CVT ? Don't they like,break,after a few years ?

    They can but it depends on the manufacturer. As far as I'm aware Nissan's CVT is reliable and has a 10year/120,000 warranty. But that reliability comes at a price, commonly $1,500 I think, and I read that they lock it so that only Nissan techs can change the (expensive, proprietary) fluid.

    Nissan seems to be leading the CVT pack, and I'd trust it -- but I still wouldn't want the extra expense and loss of FE control.

    I agree though, it's disappointing that the hatch won't get the updates for another year.
