Engine Type

Nissan offers nine different trim levels including, S (FWD), Platinum (Intelligent AWD), SR ( Intelligent AWD), SR (FWD), SR VC-Turbo FWD), SL (AWD), SV (Intelligent AWD), SL ( FWD), and SV (FWD). All standard level trims come with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine matched to a continuously variable automatic transmission which is capable of producing 188-horsepower. The next available upgrade is an optional turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that draws out a hefty 248 horsepower. Now for Nissan’s all-new 2.5-liter VC-Turbo engine that constantly adapts, raising or lowering its pistons reach seamlessly, variably, and continuously, presenting an equal balance between power and efficiency.

VC-Turbo Engine

The VC-Turbo engine utilizes a multi-link system that continuously varies the pistons allowing free control of the compression ratio critical factor of power and efficiency, on demand. This makes it the world’s first production engine to achieve both overwhelming high power and surprising fuel efficiency – two performance characteristics that ordinarily oppose each other. Nissan engineers first began the road to their VC-Turbo engine two decades ago, researching, testing, and refining what would ultimately be the VC-Turbo, the world’s first production variable compression turbo engine.
