The Micra's “big” sister is also one of the biggest subcompact cars on the market. Available in three trim levels, all driven by a 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine that produces a modest 109 horsepower, the Versa Note, if you recall, was given a mild lifting and a revised CVT automatic two years ago. It continues to stand out and attract buyers with an adjustable rear cargo floor and a 360-degree camera system, the latter making tight parking manoeuvres a lot easier.
