The updated N17 Latio (above) has been given the same bolder, kinked headlights, Sentra-style grille, and updated tail-lights as the Versa sedan that’s sold in North America. There’s also revised bumpers in the mix.
Like the Versa, these changes do little to solve the car’s awkward proportions. For comparison’s sake, you can see the pre-facelift Latio in the photo gallery below.
In Japan the N17 Latio is available with just one drivetrain: a 58kW/106Nm 1.2-litre 3-cylinder petrol engine driving the front wheels via a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Automatic engine start/stop is standard.
Three model grades are available: S, X, G. Prices start at ¥1.46 million (US$13,400) for the S and a top out at ¥1.79 million (US$18,700) for the top-of-the-line G.
