2014 Nissan Versa Note At a Glance (Press Release)

The 2014 Nissan Versa Note, which goes on sale at Nissan dealers in the United States in Summer 2013, is the fourth of five all-new vehicles being introduced in 2012 and 2013. And while some might think that the totally redesigned Altima, Pathfinder and Sentra are tough acts for an entry-level hatchback to follow, they need only look at the breakthrough Versa Note styling – and its list of available technology such as the segment’s first* Around View® Monitor – to understand that “the year of innovation” pertains to all product segments, even entry-level.

The all-new Versa Note, while sharing many attributes with the second-generation Versa Sedan (introduced in 2012), has its own distinct look, feel and added hatchback utility. It adds the Note designation for the new generation design, along with an extensive list of key features such as:

  • Energetic new exterior styling with steeply sloped windshield and sculpted body panels
  • Available Active Grille Shutter for enhanced fuel economy
  • 40 miles per gallon highway fuel economy (CVT-equipped models)
  • Smart packaging and class-leading cargo space*, with available adjustable rear load floor height
  •  Available NissanConnect℠ with Navigation System with Hands-Free Text Messaging Assistant, RearView Monitor and Around View® Monitor
  • Starting Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP)** of $13,990 USD

The all-new Versa Note is offered in a range of grade levels: S, S Plus and SV, along with top-of-the-line SL Packages. Each is equipped with an advanced 1.6-liter DOHC 4-cylinder engine with dual fuel injection and Twin CVTC (Continuously Variable Timing Control). The Versa Note S features a 5-speed manual transmission, while the S Plus and SV models are equipped with a standard next-generation Nissan Xtronic CVT® transmission. Fuel economy for the front-wheel drive Versa Note is forecast to deliver a best-in-class-level of 40 mpg Highway, 31 mpg City and 35 mpg Combined for CVT-equipped models.

Versa Note’s long list of standard and available equipment includes available Nissan Intelligent Key®, Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, SiriusXM Satellite Radio (SiriusXM subscription required, sold separately), heated front seats and 16-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.
