2014 Nissan Versa Note
Nissan has a deserved reputation for sticking to its plan. If it is not broken, they will not fix it – no need on the new Versa®Note™. It rides the same V-frame as the sedan and the tailcoat of that the sedan’s huge success.
The Versa® remains roomier than anything in its class, probably the least expensive car on the lot. Add in fuel economy and the Note’s hatchback, and you have a completed sub-compact market. It is smart, affordable, and market-defining.
