have to agree, went through alot of them myself and the main issue i always ran into on most of them was rear leg room, the worst being the ford fiesta with it's laughable rear leg room. With the exception of the honda fit none of them even come close to the rear leg room that the Note has and to top it off the Note is actually a fun car to drive, the only thing it's missing at this point is aftermarket support for which i am currently trying to get the ball rolling through a few aftermarket manufacturers. i know for sure though that the HR16DE engine in the Note and the Versa sedan will have alot more potential for power than the SOHC design engine that sits in the honda fit, maybe not by much, but it's sure to be an interesting comparison when we find out how much potential the HR16DE engine actually has cause i'm sure that nissan did it's best to detune this sucker to meet it's fuel efficiency standards.The review is pretty much on the money. I test drove 7 cars in the subcompact category and the Versa Note was the best one, very pleased so far!
can't really say i agree with him, but at least he's honest....the euro spec version does look nicer, however the dash that he seems to like in the euro is the same freaking dash as we get here, just spruced up a little bit with some trim pieces here and there and a different control stack for the AC controls. i have to admit though i would gladly trade the front fascia we get here for a euro spec front fascia.....and for the last freaking time it is not that slow especially when you consider a honda fit sport with AT gets to 60mph in about the same time as the Note lol
