by on Apr.20, 2011

The 2012 Nissan Tiida will reappear in the U.S. as the next Nissan Versa.

If you want to get an early look at what to expect from Nissan when it updates its smallest American offering you can wait for this week’s New York Auto Show or turn your attention to China, where it’s already on display.

True, the car showcased at the Shanghai Motor Show carries the unfamiliar Tiida badge used in Asia, but the more stylish remake of the subcompact will soon show up here with the familiar Versa nameplate.

The 2012 Tiida is designed to minimize the econobox look, with a more sculptured shape that includes a rounded roof line flowing into the rear hatch, and updated headlamps that reach well into the front fenders.

Nissan describes the updated design as “premium and agile styling,” and said the key goals were to give the Tiida a “fluid and brisk” appearance.
