Even though it’s six years old, the Versa Note soldiers on for the 2019 model year with few upgrades. Pricing starts at $15,650 for the five-door hatchback with multi-purpose vehicle qualities, excluding the $895 destination and handling.
The first of three trim levels is the S Xtronic, which features D-Step shift logic for the continuously variable transmission. Following the 2018.5 model year update, the Versa Note also features a 7.0-inch color audio touchscreen display. For 2019, Nissan has sweetened the deal with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, SiriusXM Satellite Radio on the mid-range SV and range-topping SR grade levels.

The SV and SR retail from $16,550 and $18,360. As you would expect, the Versa Note SR is the pick of the bunch thanks to the sportier looks, fog lights, suede-like leather upholstery for the seats, 16-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, and mirror-integrated LED turn signals.

Turning our attention to the 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, the DOHC 16-valve motor generates 109 horsepower. When driven with an emphasis on careful throttle modulation, the Versa Note is much obliged to return 39 miles per gallon on the highway. On the subject of practicality, 40.8 inches of headroom and 38.3 inches of legroom are nothing to scoff at. Trunk volume is rated at 38.3 cubic feet, with total interior volume coming in at 112.9 cubic feet.

Customers who are more interested in bang for the buck shouldn’t feel bad for choosing the S, because all the essentials are included in the price. Air conditioning and Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity plus media streaming are the highlights. The SV adds power windows and door locks, remote keyless entry, Siri Eyes Free, and the Divide-N-Hide adjustable floor.

Though it may have topped Japan’s sales ranking in January 2018, the Versa Note isn’t as popular in the United States of America. Including the sedan, sales for January 2018 came in at 7,248 examples. Last month, by comparison, Nissan struggled to move 3,145. If the automaker were to offer the e-POWER electrified powertrain in North America, that would help a lot in terms of commercial success.
