The Nissan Versa line is known for its fun style, superb MPG and interesting features for a low price. Enter the latest version of the hatchback version, the Versa Note 2018, which hits a lot this fall with more cargo room than a sedan, but with the fuel economy that makes it a value ride. Whether you’re looking to go on a drive and save gas, or you’re a driver on the road and need some cargo space for your equipment, you’ll want to see what the 2018 Nissan Versa Note can offer you!
The proportions of the Versa sedan do not really please us. It has been stuffed with corporate elements such as its grille, its headlights, its lower fairing and bumpers that seem too big, especially the headlights. On the sides, the Versa sedan manages to take its shape a little better but small 15-inch wheels do not fit the oversized wheel arches on most versions. The taillights of the sedan reach a fairly large rear overhang, and a flap mounted on the trunk deck adds a hint of flair to an otherwise indefinable tail.
In our opinion, the Versa Note is better for the small car look and Nissan has paid more attention to this model. The Versa Note has a different look from the sedan, an adapted version of Nissan’s V-motion grille. The boomerang is bookended by headlights that sit relatively high on Versa Note’s jaws, with big jowls to fill the space in front of the front tires. In profile, the Versa Note has a pair of distinctive character lines that reach up a high rear end, punctuated with a roof-mounted spoiler on some models. The Versa Note plants its rear tires closer to the tail, which allows stowing around the sedan.
Inside, the Versa does not try much style. The Versa Note and Versa sedan are more aligned on the inside, with a double-cockpit look that does not take much risk outside the center console. Large strips of hard black plastic are visible, and the appearance is not much improved by spending more.
The engine under the hood of the Versa Note will remain the same in 2018, as it will continue with the same 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 109 horsepower and 107 lb-ft of torque. This engine will continue to mate with the Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission. Although it’s not the most inspiring powertrain, it offers up to 39 miles per gallon of freeway.
The Nissan Versa Note 2018 is on sale now and its price ranges from $ 16,365 to $ 18,865
