The 2014 hatchback redesign was dubbed the Versa Note This little subcompact offers amazing space and versatility.
It's also quieter and more relaxed to drive than most competitors.
Its tall stance and wide doors make it easy to maneuver, park, and hop into and out of.
The rear seat is really roomy, and the ride feels comfortable and relaxed.
Handling is more responsive than the Versa sedan's.
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 its 31 mpg overall is respectable.
Standard Bluetooth, available heated seats, and the surround-view camera system are helpful features.
