The Nissan Versa was introduced in the 2007 model year, first as a hatchback and then as a sedan. Beginning with 2007 hatchback models manufactured after November 2006, changes were made to the side torso and side curtain airbags to improve occupant protection in side impact crashes.

The tested hatchback was manufactured after the modifications had been made. All 2007 and later Versa sedans have the modified side airbags.
Driver Injury Measures:
Measures taken from the dummy indicate that rib fractures and a fracture of the pelvis would be possible in a crash of this severity.

The dummy’s head was protected from being hit by any hard structures, including the intruding barrier, by a side curtain airbag that deployed from the roof.
Passenger Injury Measures:
