WHAT MAKES THE 2018 NISSAN VERSA NOTE A PERFECT CITY CAR
City driving comes with a set of unique challenges that commuters face every day. Navigating the often narrow, jam-packed roads of a large city like nearby Raleigh, North Carolina, can be tricky. That’s why we’ve put together an overview of the 2018 Nissan Versa Note’s economic, connectivity, and safety features that make it perfect for urban streets.
The versatile five-door Versa Note offers two rows of seats with room for five passengers and plenty of leg- and headroom. The rear seats stand out due to its ample accommodations for tall adults, great when you have someone over 6-feet tall in your carpool group. The Versa’s cabin is in line with its price point and is made from durable hard plastics and comes standard with cloth upholstery.
CONVENIENT CARGO ROOM
Whether you’re heading to the big box store to stock up or you’re hauling some gear across town for a friend, the Versa Note has a surprising amount of cargo space for a small hatchback: 19 cubic feet. Fold the seats down, and reveal 38 cubic feet of room.
LOW BASE PRICE
The 2018.5 Versa Note has an MSRP of only $15,600, less than many of its competitors’ starting prices. For the midline trim, the SV, expect to pay $16,500, and that includes Siri Eyes Free.
The highest trim level, the SR, comes with a suite of spiffy amenities. With a starting price of $18,100, you’ll get 16-inch aluminum alloy wheels, sporty rear spoiler, premium, synthetic suede seats, fog lights, and push-button start.
Stay connected when you’re cruising around the city with Versa Note’s infotainment system with a 5-inch screen, and an intuitive interface featuring voice recognition. You won’t get lost downtown with navigation, Bluetooth, and smartphone integration. Stay entertained when stuck on congested highways with a four-speaker sound system and satellite radio.
EXCEPTIONAL GAS MILEAGE
Subcompacts are the most fuel-efficient gas-powered cars out there, and the Versa Note by Nissan is no different. Thanks to a 109-horsepower four-cylinder engine that’s mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission, it earns an estimated 31 mpg city and 39 mpg highway. Those city ratings will make you smile as you drive past the gas station.
OUTSTANDING CRASH TEST SCORES
City driving can be dangerous, and Nissan has you covered with the Versa Note’s high crash test scores. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration ranked the 2018 Versa Note compact hatchback five full stars for the side impact safety test, and an overall four out of five stars. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety awarded the Versa Note with its highest score of Good for the moderate overlap front crash test.
For added protection on the road, Nissan offers an available rearview camera, and a 360-degree parking camera with the new Versa Note.
When you’re in the market for the perfect city car, give the Nissan Versa Note hatchback a look. With its low base price, generous cargo room, and spacious seating, the Versa is on a mission to conquer Metropolis.
