    2020 Versa Sedan 5MT

    Not sure if anyone else has noticed this yet but it appears that the new 2020 Versa Sedan in the States essentially has the k14 Micra interior and the engine from the Kicks.

    However, the new Versa gets the same 5MT option found in our Micras (it even has a really out of place Micra shift knob) but with the Intake Manifold Runners like on the Kicks and an alleged 122hp and 113lb-ft with the 5MT.

    If only there were an easy way to tune our Micras it would be a reliable way to gain 13hp and 6lb-ft.

    The new "Gen3" 16-valve DOHC HR16DE engine features a 10.4:1 compression ratio, spray-coated bore cylinder block, high thermal conductivity piston rings and sodium-filled exhaust valves.

    It looks like they've revised the engine with a higher compression ratio as well. AFAIK our Micras aren't using sodium filled exhaust valves either.

    I would bet the Mexican factory will be producing the next-gen K14 Micra hatchback alongside the K14-based Versa at some point in the not too distant future. My guess is appearing next year as a 2021 model.

    The Micra Cup series is confirmed through next year (2020) supporting the current K13 car.

    9,999 purchase price + additional 1600$ because it was a 2015 purchased in 2016
