The Nissan Versa was first introduced in the U.S. in 2006 as an all-new model to the North American market. The Versa or Tiida B-platform is also sold in Japan, Europe, and other overseas markets. The Versa design emphasizes a roomy interior with an adult-friendly backseat, a snappy ride and offers many available convenience features. It has large usable trunk, excellent sedan fuel economy, all in a compact package.

The Versa is available as both a four-door sedan and five-door hatchback. The sedan is all-new for 2012, but the hatchback remains unchanged. Nissan says it will be updated for next year. The second-generation Versa sedan features a more contemporary look with curves where there were rough edges, and not only does it look different, but it also has a new and significantly more fuel-efficient drive-train. It is based on the corporation's new "V" (for versatile) global platform, which weighs 154 pounds less and contains 20-percent fewer parts. The wheelbase and width remain the same but overall length is down.

The 2012 sedan model gets a new 1.6-liter engine mated to a CVT or a five-speed manual gearbox, and produces 109 horsepower. The new powerplant is smooth and quiet, yet by simply replacing the existing air filter with K&N's 33-2479 high-flow, washable and reusable air filter, your Versa can receive a distinct boost in overall performance. K&N's 33-2479 air filter provides less restriction than disposable paper air filters. Less restriction can help your Versa perform better.

The K&N high-performance, reusable, panel-style air filter directly replaces the existing factory air filter. This air filter was designed to increase horsepower and acceleration while it provides outstanding engine protection. The replacement procedure is identical to replacing the stock filter.

Furthermore, this will be the last air filter you'll ever need to buy for your Nissan Versa because it's backed with K&N's Million Mile Limited Warranty. In addition, you won't even need to think about cleaning your 33-2479 reusable air filter for up to 50,000 care-free miles, depending on driving conditions.

K&N 33-2479 fits the following:

2016 Nissan Versa 1.6L L4
2015 Nissan Versa Note 1.6L L4
