Nissan Versa Note Overview

A redesigned Versa hatchback, the Note offers amazing space and versatility, and it's quieter and more relaxed to drive than most subcompact cars. Its tall stance and wide doors make it easy to maneuver, park, and hop in and out. The rear seat is really roomy, and the ride feels comfortable and relaxed. Handling is more responsive than the Versa sedan. Our main gripes are its awkward driving position, squishy front seats, and lack of interior storage. The continuously variable transmission can magnify coarse engine noise when accelerating, but at least it helps lift the Note to a respectable 31 mpg overall. Even so, the Note is a good package for the price.
