2014 Nissan Versa Note: Small car makes sweet music

Nissan Versa Note


The 2014 Nissan Versa Note provides yet another bit of proof that if you want a subcompact, these days you can get one that looks cool and has pretty decent space inside, while still being fuel efficient and affordable.
The Versa Note comes in three trim levels: S, which has a manual transmission; S-Plus, which is available with automatic and a few extras; and SV, which has a convenience package and an optional SL tech package.
This car comes with stuff that you would normally expect to see in a premium or luxury model, such as Around View, which includes four cameras that give you a 360 degree view of the car for safety, NissanConnect with Navigation and Nav Traffic, heated cloth seats, backup camera and Pandora with Bluetooth streaming audio.
And it offers one of our favorite features on the automotive market today: the Easy-Fill Tire Alert, which beeps the horn when you have put the right amount of air into the tire.
The outside of the Versa Note looks as if the designer said "Let's take something boxy, knock off some of those square edges, add a few cool curves and make something people can actually like."
Good for them.
Under the hood, the car has a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine with either a five-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable transmission. The engine is plenty peppy, and the fuel economy numbers will make you jump for joy at 31 mpg city, 40 highway.
On the inside, you can get some of the nice creature comforts listed above, but even without those, you should ride pretty comfortably. And the rear cargo area gives surprisingly good hauling space for this size vehicle.
The Versa Note starts at around $14,000 and tops out right around $20,000.
Nissan sang a sweet note when it came up with this cool little car.
