Nissan Note дебютировал на мировой арене в 2004 году и практически моментально стал одним из самых популярных и востребованных автомобилей в классе, чему способствала привлекательная внешность, компактность и впечатляющая по меркам класса вместительность.

Спустя несколько лет модель подверглась незначительному рестайлингу, а в 2012 году автоконцерн Nissan официально представил второе поколение модели, кардинально изменившейся не только снаружи, но и внутри. В 2016 году Nissan Note, известный в США под именем Nissan Versa Note, пережил обновление, в результате которого автомобиль получил более «свежий» экстерьер и заметно преобразившийся интерьер, ставший более презентабельным и современным.

Что ж, давайте детально рассмотрим достоинства и недостатки новинки, предыдущее поколение которой в России установило рекорд по количеству проданных автомобилей в своем классе.

Экстерьер Nissan Versa Note

В сравнении с первой генерацией автомобиль существенно прибавил в яркости и привлекательности, вплотную приблизившись к эталону автомобильного дизайна современности.

Лицевая часть Nissan Versa Note представлена мускулистым бампером со встроенной трапециевидной решёткой воздухозаборника и стильными противотуманками с хромированной окантовкой. Отметим, что бампер спроектирован таким образом, чтобы в случае наезда на пешехода подбросить его на капот, тем самым минимизировав риск получения серьёзных повреждений.

Профиль автомобиля выделяется наличием компактного капота, сильно заваленными назад передними стойками, а также куполообразной линией крыши, стремительно обрывающейся и образующей практически вертикальную поверхность двери багажника. Компактвен может похвастаться наличием крупных боковых дверей, украшенными стильными выштамповками, а также дутыми колёсными дисками, в которых располагаются стальные либо легкосплавные диски R15(16).

В сравнении с лицевой частью кузова, корма Versa Note выглядит более сдержанно, а самым ярким элементом выступают замысловатые вертикальные плафоны габаритных огней.

Внешние габариты обновлённого Ниссан Верса Ноут остались прежними и имеют следующие показатели:

  • Длина – 4,1 м;
  • Ширина – 1,695 м;
  • Высота – 1,525 м;
  • Длина колёсной базы – 2,6 м.

Высота дорожного просвета типична для автомобилей данного класса и составляет 165 мм, чего достаточно для комфортной «жизни» как в городе, так и в его окрестностях. Автомобиль предлагается в одной из девяти расцветок кузова, а также предлагает широкий выбор опциональных улучшений (задний спойлер, несколько видов легкосплавных дисков и т.п.).

Интерьер рестайлингового Nissan Note

Внутреннее оформление Ноута, в сравнении с дорестайлинговой версией, стало более привлекательным, современным и презентабельным. Рабочее место водителя обзавелось новой панелью приборов, новым и более эффектным трехспицевым рулём, с возможностью управления аудиосистемой и показателями бортового компьютера. Архитектура центральной торпедо также преобразилась, получив новые дефлекторы воздуховодов, новый мультимедийно-развлекательный блок и блок управления микроклиматом, лишившийся своей игрушечной оригинальности.

Передние кресла, как и раньше, обеспечивают комфортную посадку седокам любой комплекции и роста, причём в отличие от большинства конкурентов могут похвастаться ещё и хорошо ощутимой боковой поддержкой. Качество материалов возросло, а сборка по-прежнему радует отличной подгонкой деталей и отсутствием скрипов.

Второй ряд сидений вмещает троих пассажиров, но действительно вольготно тут будет только двоим седокам, чему виной относительно невысокая ширина и наличие высокого трансмиссионного туннеля. При необходимости задние сидения можно перемещать взад-вперёд, что позволяет увеличивать объем багажника или количество свободного пространства для ног задних седоков.

Технические характеристики Nissan Versa Note 2017

В зависимости от географии, автомобиль может агрегатироваться, как бензиновыми, так и дизельными двигателями мощностью от 80 до 109 «лошадок»:

  1. На японском рынке автомобиль представлен двумя трёхцилиндровыми бензиновиками объёмом 1,2-литра и мощностью в 80 и 98 л.с. (110 и 140 Нм вращательного момента соответственно). С такими двигателями автомобиль разменивает первую сотню за 13,7 (11,7) сек. и может развить максимальные 170 (180) км/час. Расход топлива при этом будет варьироваться в пределах 4,3-4,8 л/100 км в комбинированном режиме езды.
  2. На европейском рынке машина также предлагается с 1,5-литровым дизелем, генерирующим 90 «кобыл» и обеспечивающим разгон от 0 до 100 за 11,9 сек. Максимальная скорость дизельного Ноут составляет 179 км/час, а средний расход – 3,6 л/100 км.
  3. В Америке вместо дизеля предлагается бензиновый 109-сильный 1,6-литровый мотор, выдающий 145 Нм вращательного момента и обладающий лучшей, по сравнению с младшими модификациями, динамикой.

На выбор покупателям предлагается 5-диапазонная механика или бесступенчатый вариатор, при этом доступен привод исключительно на переднюю ось.

Новый Versa Note 2017 построен на многоцелевой тележке V-platform, предполагающей использование передней независимой подвески типа МакФерсон и торсионной балки на задней ости. Тормозная система представлена дисковыми тормозами на всех колёсах (на передних с вентиляцией), а также внушительным список электронных помощников, призванных снизить вероятность ДТП в экстренных и сложных дорожных ситуациях.

Безопасность Nissan Versa Note 2017

Видео обзор Nissan Versa Note 2017:

2017 Nissan Versa Note

2017 Versa Note

Since its U.S. introduction for the 2014 model year, Versa Note has celebrated the difference between hatchback and sedan buyers. Where most manufacturers in the segment offer lookalike styling, essentially only substituting the trunk lid for a hatchback, the Versa Note and Versa sedan have highly distinctive exteriors. The two share many components under the skin, but few elements when it comes to design – acknowledging that hatchback buyers are looking for an added level of style to go with a 5-door’s utility.

This one-two punch of Versa Note and Versa has been rewarded in the marketplace, where the combination has maintained the highest sales among competitors in segment year-after-year.

For 2017, Versa Note accentuates its popular forward-looking style even more with a new front fascia and «V-Motion» grille that flows seamlessly with the swept-back halogen headlights. While now sharing a closer family resemblance with Nissan Sentra, Altima and Maxima, the new design retains the vibrant Versa Note personality, especially when wrapped in new Monarch Orange or Deep Blue Pearl exterior colors. In addition, Versa Note S Plus, SV and SL grades receive the sporty rear fascia previously available only on Versa Note SR.

Other enhancements for the 2017 model year include a new wheel cover design for S Plus and SV grades and a revised 16-inch aluminum-alloy wheel design for the SL trim level. Inside, the 2017 Versa Note includes a number of customer input-driven changes, such as larger cupholders, the addition of a second 12-volt outlet for SV, SR and SL trims and the relocation of the first 12-volt outlet and USB auxiliary port to the front of the center console.

The 2017 Versa Note is offered in a range of four well-equipped models: S Plus, SV, SR and SL. Each model is powered by a 1.6-liter DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine, matched with a next-generation, Nissan Xtronic transmission, helping them achieve up to an EPA-estimated 39 miles per gallon highway fuel economy. The Xtronic transmission has received new D-Step Logic Control tuning for improved acceleration feel.

New Front End Design Enhances the Open, Aero and Energetic Exterior

Since its introduction in 2013 as a 2014 model, Nissan Versa Note’s sculpted styling has been designed to accomplish two things: provide efficient aerodynamics to help enhance fuel economy and to stand out from the crowd of entry-level competitors. Its dramatic shape and proportions provide an energetic look that reflects the active lives of its target buyers.

For 2017, the fresh new front end appearance adds to its character with a new fascia and Nissan’s distinctive V-Motion grille. Along with its steeply sloped front windshield and deeply sculpted doors, Versa Note features a dramatic character line called the «squash line.» Inspired by the international sport of squash, the line follows the trajectory of a squash ball hitting a wall, bouncing on the court floor and returning to the player. This «rebound path» projects the dynamic energy of Versa Note in both look and driving feel.

Attention to aerodynamic detail helps Versa Note achieve a coefficient of drag of 0.298. The large front spoiler combines with a «kick up» roof shape and low aero-drag floor structure (including front and rear tire deflectors, rear suspension beam mounted flush with floor and fuel tank deflectors) to direct airflow over, under and around the body. An Active Grille Shutter limits the amount of air entering the engine compartment, reducing drag force by 0.01. The Active Grille Shutter is generally closed at speeds above 20 miles per hour.

The new-for-2017 swept-back multi-reflector halogen headlights are paired with Versa Note’s «boomerang» rear taillights, which are similar to those found on the Nissan 370Z and Nissan JUKE. The special «vented» taillight design includes special outlets and lip to help guide air away from the body for reduced air turbulence and improved rear lamp visibility in bad weather. Fog lights and heated sideview mirrors are also available. All 2017 Versa Note grades now adapt the sporty rear fascia previously available only on the SR grade.

The Versa Note SR model offers exterior and interior treatments including fog lights, body-color side sills, rear spoiler, sideview mirrors with integrated turn signals, suede-like seats, 370Z-style sport leather wrapped steering wheel and 16-inch sport machine-finished aluminum-alloy wheels – providing a more sporty appearance.

Versa Note’s dynamic design also takes full advantage of Nissan’s global «V» platform. It features a long 102.4-inch wheelbase helping maximize interior roominess, while short front and rear overhangs help provide a sporty stance and parking maneuverability.

The 2017 Versa Note is offered in the following colors: new Monarch Orange and Deep Blue Pearl, along with Gun Metallic, Cayenne Red, Brilliant Silver, Super Black, Aspen White and Fresh Powder.

Roomy Interior, Class-Exclusive Around View® Monitor

The roomy interior is a perfect match for the stylish Versa Note exterior. The five-passenger Versa Note cabin provides a spacious total interior volume of 112.9 cubic feet and ample cargo space of 18.8 cubic feet. A low cargo area liftover height provides easy loading and unloading of heavy or bulky objects. The interior also offers front headroom of 40.8 inches and rear legroom of 38.3 inches – making Versa Note both adult comfortable and kid friendly.

Enhancements for the new model year include a number of customer input-driven changes, such as larger cupholders, the addition of a second 12-volt outlet for SV, SR and SL trims and the relocation of the first 12-volt outlet and USB auxiliary port to the front of the center console.

As in previous years, interior versatility is enhanced through use of an available Divide-N-Hide® Adjustable Floor. The Divide-N-Hide® system creates a flat cargo area. Lifting up the cargo floor board reveals a hidden area underneath to keep valuables out of sight. When more space is needed for carrying taller or bulkier items, lowering the floor board creates a deeper cargo well. The floor board is designed to stay in the vehicle yet is easily removed if desired. It’s a simple solution to balance the need for a flat load floor or maximum cargo capacity or security.

The long list of interior features starts with the standard cloth seating, 4-way adjustable front bucket seats (S Plus) or 6-way driver’s seat (SV, SR, SL), Fine Vision instrumentation, AM/FM/CD/Aux-in audio system with 4 speakers, 12-volt power outlet, front door pockets with bottle holders, dual front and rear cupholders, front passenger seatback pocket, 60/40-split fold-down rear seat, Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System and many more amenities. The Versa Note SR includes sporty suede-like seat accents and a 370Z-style steering wheel.

Also available are heated front seats with upgraded seat cloth and stitching, along with a leather-wrapped steering wheel, chrome/silver accents, USB input with iPod® control, and steering wheel-mounted audio and Bluetooth® controls. Two interior colors are offered: Charcoal and Wheat Stone.

Among the Versa Note’s unexpected and affordable technology is the class-exclusive1 Around View® Monitor2. The system utilizes four small superwide-angle cameras mounted on the front, side and rear of the vehicle to provide a virtual 360° view of objects around the vehicle, with selectable split-screen close-ups of the front, rear and curb views, helping the driver maneuver the car into tight spots. The Around View® Monitor2 is standard on the SL grade.

Also standard on SL or available as part of the SR Tech Package is the advanced NissanConnectSM with Navigation and Mobile Apps with SiriusXM® Traffic and SiriusXM® Travel Link™ (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately), Nissan Voice Recognition for navigation and audio and a 5.8-inch color touch-screen display. The NissanConnect Navigation System also provides warnings for curves, speed limit information and an eco route setting.

The Hands-Free Text Messaging Assistant3 – which is available with the standard 5.0-inch color display on SV and SR grades and 5.8-inch display on SL grade – allows drivers to receive and respond to text messages without touching their cell phones. With a touch of a button messages can be read to the driver and answered with pre-loaded responses via voice recognition.

Other available Versa Note technology includes Nissan Intelligent KeyTM with Push Button Ignition, RearView Monitor and SiriusXM® Satellite Radio (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately).

Nissan Versa Note

The Right Combination of Power and MPG

With entry-level buyers looking for value not just in the initial purchase price but also in day-to-day operation, the front-wheel drive Versa Note is designed to provide a rewarding combination of fuel economy and performance.

Anchoring the powertrain is a 1.6-liter HR16DE 4-cylinder engine rated at 109 horsepower @ 6,000 rpm and 107 lb-ft of torque @ 4,400 rpm. The engine includes a range of cutting-edge technologies, including a dual fuel injector system that allows a wider injection of fuel (versus traditional single injector systems), with the smaller nozzles delivering a spray approximately 57 percent finer than the previous generation single injector design’s particle size to help achieve more complete combustion.

The compact, lightweight engine also utilizes a Twin Continuously Variable Timing Control (CVTC) system mounted on intake and exhaust ports (versus conventional CVTC systems, which are mounted only on the intake port), similar to the system used on the flagship Nissan Maxima. Using a CVTC on the outlet port increases thermal efficiency, decreases inhalation resistance and offers an approximate four percent improvement in fuel efficiency (over the previous engine design).

Versa Note is offered with a standard advanced Xtronic transmission with D-step Logic Control, which simulates shifts, giving a more natural acceleration feeling without holding a high rpm constant. The Xtronic transmission, retuned for 2017 for better acceleration feel, allows continuous change of the transmission gear ratio by connecting the two pulleys with a metallic belt and changing their diameter by using hydraulic pressure. Aiding efficiency is an integrated auxiliary gearbox using planetary gearing. The Xtronic features a transmission ratio of 7.3:1, broader than those of typical 7-speed automatic transmissions. A transmission oil warmer transfers engine coolant heat to the transmission oil, helping reduce transmission friction during cold starts, increasing short trip fuel economy.

In addition to the advanced engine and transmission designs, excellent everyday drivability is provided by an independent strut front suspension with stabilizer bar, torsion beam rear axle with integrated stabilizer bar, and electric power steering.

Braking is provided by standard power-assisted front disc/rear drum brakes with standard Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist.

The 2017 Versa Note rides on standard 15-inch steel wheels with new-design full wheel covers and 185/65HR15 all-season tires, while 16-inch aluminum-alloy wheels with 195/55HR16 all-season tires are standard with the SR and SL grades (redesigned for SL for 2017). Optionally available as part of the SV Appearance Package are 15-inch aluminum-alloy wheels. Low rolling resistance tires are standard on all models.

Standard safety and security systems include the Nissan Advanced Air Bag System (AABS) (includes dual-stage front supplemental air bags), front seat-mounted side-impact supplemental air bags, roof-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental air bags, Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC), Traction Control System (TCS) and Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) with available Easy-Fill Tire Alert.

A Range of Four Well-Equipped Grade Levels

The 2017 Versa Note is offered in S Plus, SV, SR and SL grade levels.

Versa Note SV models include power windows with one-touch down feature, power door locks with speed-sensing auto-lock, Remote Keyless Entry, cruise control, leather-wrapped steering wheel, chrome and silver interior accents, Piano Black C-cluster surround, 3-dial Fine Vision Meter design, multi-function trip computer with outside temperature display, map light with key-linked illuminated entry system, driver’s seat armrest and seat lifter, upgraded seat cloth and stitching, USB input with iPod® control, second 12-volt power outlet, SiriusXM® Satellite Radio (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately), 5.0-inch color display, Streaming audio via Bluetooth®, Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant3, RearView Monitor and Divide-N-Hide® Adjustable Floor.

Versa Note SR offers sporty exterior and interior treatments, including fog lights, rear spoiler, body-color side sills, suede-like seats, rear seat armrest with cupholders, sideview mirrors with integrated turn signals, 370Z-style leather-wrapped steering wheel and 16-inch machine-finished aluminum-alloy wheels.

The top-of-the-line Versa Note SL includes NissanConnect with Navigation and Mobile Apps, 5.8-inch color touch-screen display, Streaming audio via Bluetooth®, Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant3, SiriusXM® Traffic, SiriusXM® Travel Link™ (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately), Around View® Monitor2, rear seat armrest with cupholders, variable intermittent wipers, heated front seats, heated side view mirrors, Nissan Intelligent KeyÔ with Push Button Ignition, Easy-Fill Tire Alert and 16-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.

Two equipment optional packages are offered: SV Appearance Package and SR Tech Package. The SV Appearance Package includes 15-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, fog lights and variable intermittent wipers. The SR Tech Package includes NissanConnect with Navigation and Mobile Apps with 5.8-inch color touch-screen display.

The 2017 Versa Note is assembled by Nissan Mexicana SA de CV in Aguascalientes, Mexico.

The engine includes a range of cutting-edge technologies, including a dual fuel injector system that allows a wider injection of fuel (versus traditional single injector systems), with the smaller nozzles delivering a spray approximately 57 percent finer than the previous generation single injector design’s particle size to help achieve more complete combustion.

The compact, lightweight engine also utilizes a Twin Continuously Variable Timing Control (CVTC) system mounted on intake and exhaust ports (versus conventional CVTC systems, which are mounted only on the intake port), similar to the system used on the flagship Nissan Maxima. Using a CVTC on the outlet port increases thermal efficiency, decreases inhalation resistance and offers an approximate four percent improvement in fuel efficiency (over the previous engine design).

Versa Note is offered with a standard advanced Xtronic transmission with D-step Logic Control, which simulates shifts, giving a more natural acceleration feeling without holding a high rpm constant. The Xtronic transmission, retuned for 2017 for better acceleration feel, allows continuous change of the transmission gear ratio by connecting the two pulleys with a metallic belt and changing their diameter by using hydraulic pressure. Aiding efficiency is an integrated auxiliary gearbox using planetary gearing. The Xtronic features a transmission ratio of 7.3:1, broader than those of typical 7-speed automatic transmissions. A transmission oil warmer transfers engine coolant heat to the transmission oil, helping reduce transmission friction during cold starts, increasing short trip fuel economy.

In addition to the advanced engine and transmission designs, excellent everyday drivability is provided by an independent strut front suspension with stabilizer bar, torsion beam rear axle with integrated stabilizer bar, and electric power steering.

Braking is provided by standard power-assisted front disc/rear drum brakes with standard Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist.

The 2017 Versa Note rides on standard 15-inch steel wheels with new-design full wheel covers and 185/65HR15 all-season tires, while 16-inch aluminum-alloy wheels with 195/55HR16 all-season tires are standard with the SR and SL grades (redesigned for SL for 2017). Optionally available as part of the SV Appearance Package are 15-inch aluminum-alloy wheels. Low rolling resistance tires are standard on all models.

Standard safety and security systems include the Nissan Advanced Air Bag System (AABS) (includes dual-stage front supplemental air bags), front seat-mounted side-impact supplemental air bags, roof-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental air bags, Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC), Traction Control System (TCS) and Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) with available Easy-Fill Tire Alert.

A Range of Four Well-Equipped Grade Levels

The 2017 Versa Note is offered in S Plus, SV, SR and SL grade levels.

Versa Note SV models include power windows with one-touch down feature, power door locks with speed-sensing auto-lock, Remote Keyless Entry, cruise control, leather-wrapped steering wheel, chrome and silver interior accents, Piano Black C-cluster surround, 3-dial Fine Vision Meter design, multi-function trip computer with outside temperature display, map light with key-linked illuminated entry system, driver’s seat armrest and seat lifter, upgraded seat cloth and stitching, USB input with iPod® control, second 12-volt power outlet, SiriusXM® Satellite Radio (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately), 5.0-inch color display, Streaming audio via Bluetooth®, Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant3, RearView Monitor and Divide-N-Hide® Adjustable Floor.

2017 Nissan Versa Note Overview

It doesn’t offer much in the way of luxury or performance, but Nissan’s 2017 Versa Note subcompact hatchback is long on value, perfect for the urban-dwelling family on a budget. With seating for 5, this pint-size hatch matches its Versa sedan cousin (covered in a separate preview) in looks, features, and personality, while also adding in a little extra cargo space.

There are no scheduled changes for the 2017 Versa Note, which underwent a comprehensive refresh inside and out for 2015. The trim lineup includes the S, S Plus, SV, SR, and top-shelf SL. Look for this little hatchback to boast a surprisingly roomy cabin, though cargo room is below the class average, with 18.8 cubic feet behind the rear seats and 38.3 cubic feet total. The 2017 Versa Note should offer a pleasant ride, but power and handling will likely leave a little to be desired. All versions are available only with front-wheel drive (FWD).

Like the Versa sedan, the Versa Note gets its grunt from a 1.6-liter inline 4-cylinder (I4) powerplant that puts out 109 hp and 107 lb-ft of torque. The entry-level S trim is only delivered with a 5-speed manual transmission, while all other editions get a continuously variable transmission (CVT). The CVT achieves a healthy 31 mpg city/40 highway/35 combined, and the manual is good for 27/36/30—but these fuel-economy numbers may be tough to come by in real-world driving. One track test had the current Versa Note going from 0-60 mph in 10.4 seconds, a full 1.6 seconds slower than the considerably more potent Honda Fit.

The Versa Note is admittedly less well-equipped than many of its competitors, with a cabin full of hard plastic and uninteresting interior accent materials. Lower trims tend to scrimp on features, but you can get a brand-new Versa Note S for less than you’d pay for many similarly equipped used cars. Unfortunately, there’s little in the way of interior soundproofing, no height adjustment for the driver’s seat, no split-folding rear seats in the S trim, and a tilt-only steering wheel, all of which may not stand out very much to more discriminating consumers.

On the plus side, higher Versa Note trims include standard features like a rear-view camera, power-adjustable exterior mirrors, a rear spoiler, a touchscreen display, and satellite radio, while the flagship SL trim adds standard Bluetooth-integrated NissanConnect infotainment with destination downloads and smartphone apps.

Among the options available on the SV, SR, and SL is a unique “Divide-n-Hide” adjustable cargo floor that allows smaller items such as purses or briefcases to be stashed out of sight below the floor itself while bulkier items are loaded above.

Standard safety features include front-disc/rear-drum antilock braking (ABS) and supplemental airbags on all trims; higher trims also boast standard front fog/driving lights, turn-signal-integrated mirrors, and a remote antitheft alarm. The SL additionally packs Nissan’s Easy Fill tire-inflation alert system, which sounds the vehicle’s horn when it senses you’ve reached the proper psi while inflating the tires. An available Around View Monitor (AVM) provides 360-degree camera coverage to aid difficult parking maneuvers.

The National Highway Transportation Administration (NHTSA) gives the current Versa Note lineup 4 out of 5 stars for overall crashworthiness. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), meantime, has awarded the Versa Note its highest score of Good on all tests except the small-overlap frontal-offset, where the Nissan received a worst possible score of Poor. The IIHS also gives the current editions its second-highest score of Acceptable for ease of use on the government-mandated LATCH child-seat anchoring system.

The 2017 Versa Note will challenge other entry-level vehicles like the Ford Fiesta, Chevrolet Sonic, and Hyundai Accent in the small hatchback market, with each of these rivals offering more in the way of refinement and performance—though at a higher price. A further challenge comes in the form of Honda’s Fit, generally acknowledged as the best of the subcompact hatchback available here in the U.S.

Have Laptop. Will Travel. I’m retired and travelling the country in a 34′ motor home. I’m really digging meeting people . . and sometimes their cars . . . getting a sense of what makes this nation tick. The plan is to visit all the national parks in the continental US, then cruise to Alaska to visit Denali, and to Hawaii to check out Haleakala and the Hawaii Volcano’s national parks. Anyhow, when I’m not horsing the motor home around the roadways, I’m tooting around in the 2012 Ford Focus that we tow behind, or making runs to Home Depot and various malls with the 2004 F-150 that just won’t die.

2017 Nissan Versa Note Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

The 2017 Nissan Versa Note is slightly updated for 2017 with new front styling and updated automatic transmission tuning.Pricing is unchanged, but the least-expensive S trim has been dropped and the Versa Note now starts at $16,345 for the S Plus instead of 2016’s $15,095 for the S, though with the additional feature content of the S Plus (prices include destination).

The Versa Note’s appearance is livened up this year with swept-back styling featuring redesigned headlights and a more-aggressive grille; the look is shared by recently updated Nissans like the Sentra, Altima and Maxima. Like before, Versa Note SR trims have sportier styling with a rear spoiler and machine-finished 16-inch aluminum alloy wheels.

Interior

The Versa Note interior’s strong points are a roomy backseat and 360-degree Around View Monitor commonly found on pricier vehicles, and both carry over for 2017. What’s new are larger cupholders and relocated USB port to the front of the center console; there’s also an additional 12-volt outlet on SV, SR and SL trims. The Versa Note has seating for five and the backseat folds for a maximum 38.3 cubic feet of cargo space, which is on the short side compared with a more space-efficient hatchback like the Honda Fit’s 52.7 cubic feet of cargo space, though to be fair, everything in this class trails the Fit’s cargo usability.

Under the Hood

Nissan drops the base model S and its manual transmission for 2017, leaving the CVT as the only one available. The transmission itself is now programmed to simulate shifting instead of holding the engine at constant high speeds, which Nissan says gives the Versa Note a more natural acceleration feeling.

Safety

The Versa Note has safety features common to the class, such as side-impact and side-curtain airbags and required standard electronic stability control and tire pressure monitoring system. The optional 360-degree backup camera is a highlight only on the top SL trim where it’s standard, and a traditional backup camera is standard on SL and SR trims but not available on the standard S Plus model.
