2018 Nissan Versa Note Overview

In the subcompact hatchback market, the buyer’s dollar goes quite far - especially with the Nissan Versa Note.

The Versa Note features an upright layout that provides ample headroom, solid rearward visibility, and a large rear cargo opening for plenty of storage. The Versa Note features 18.8 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats. With the rear seats folded, cargo volume grows to 38.3 cubic feet of cargo space. The cabin of the Versa Note is modern and sophisticated, with a sensible layout for controls, and plenty of storage compartments in the doors, and center console.

Trims for the Versa Note are the S, SV, and SR. The base S trim comes equipped with a multifunction steering wheel, Bluetooth hands-free smartphone connectivity, 15-inch steel wheels with covers, and 4-speaker stereo with aux input. The SV trim comes with upgraded cloth fabric trim, an upgraded iPod input, 5-inch audio display, and SiriusXM satellite radio. Finally, the range-topping SR trim features 16-inch alloy wheels, body colored side sill and rear spoilers, and side mirrors with integrated turn signals. The SR also features suede-like upholstery with colored accents and remote keyless entry with push-button start.

The 2018 Nissan Versa Note comes with a 1.6-liter inline 4-cylinder engine that makes 109 horsepower and 107 pound-feet of torque. Power is sent to the front wheels via the continuously variable transmission (CVT). The nimble Versa Note returns fuel economy of 31 mpg city, 39 mpg highway, 34 combined.

The Nissan Versa Note comes standard with a full array of front and side impact airbags, front crumple zones, vehicle dynamic control, traction control system, and LATCH child seat anchoring systems. The Versa Note is also available with the Easy-Fill Tire Alert. It is optional on SV and standard on SR. If you are outside the vehicle and filling up the tires, the Easy-Fill Tire Alert automatically flashes the lights once it senses air is properly flowing and honks the horn when the tires are properly filled.

Base MSRP for the 2018 Nissan Versa Note is $15,600 for the S trim. The SV trim starts at $16,500, while the range-topping SR trim starts at $18,100. Even fully loaded, the Versa Note is a great value, offering plenty of features and versatility at an affordable price.
