smallest car in the U.S. market is the Versa
and it's due for a refresh. That new design is expected to appear in 2010 and will be built on the same platform that French partner Renault
uses for the Megane. Like the current Versa, it will apparently be coming in both four-door sedan and five-door hatch flavors. Also coming from the French side of the family will likely be some engines. Like those from many other automakers, these are expected to follow the path of smaller displacement and turbocharging. The Renault TCe engines come in 1.4L and 2.0L variants, although it seems unlikely that a 2.0L turbo would land in the Versa.
