2014 Nissan Versa Note

Either this forum is slacking or I am just blind but a new Versa has been revealed and I'm shocked we don't have a post of it yet.

Usual Nissan applies meaning manual tranny in base model only, CVT in all else. This is basically the same car as the newer nissan note available in japan. I believe they have a smaller engine though. We get the revised 1.6 HR16 found in the newer Versa sedan. Not a bad thing as mpg's are pretty good and so far since it's introduction in 2009 here in the states it seems pretty reliable. I am currently at 117k miles (highest mile HR in USA?) and have had not a single engine issue.



I like: the price starting at $13,999 - the fact it's a hatchback - not a totally different model for North American market

I don't like: The looks as it is very bland - interior as it looks too cheap - only manual tranny on base model and only 5spd

Looking forward to: a sport package and some nut to do a crazy engine swap LOL

From the angle of the picture provided, it seems a bit shorter than the 07-11 HB. My biggest dislike is the headlights, it's just odd looking. I do like that they kept some of the same visual queues as the older HBs

Edited: The tail light is also "odd" looking and I agree with you on the interior looking "cheap" but I do like the a/c control center

Like the interior (to all of you saying it looks cheap, it still looks better than the interior in the rest of our Versas, which also looks pretty cheap), don't like the rear end, kind of like the front. Kind of disappointed they changed it so drastically.

I need to see the inside more I guess. True our current interiors are just as bad if not worse.

Yup very similar to the Fit. Wonder why we didn't get the new Tiida here? Wonder if nissan is planning on releasing that here as sort of a sentra wagon. I doubt it though.

This is autech. They did some good things with previous nissan models.



another nissan customized note



I really like that last one. If it were one color and not all the graphics I think it would look pretty damn good.

Not bad, I wouldn't trade mine for it but I'd drive one. Just wish they had manual trannies available in the higher end models. I like the Autech version.

Were there any specifications on the interior cubic inches of available space? Would like to compare the new spec to the 09-12 models HB. I would like to see one and measure the HB opening and do a comparison.
