In the Nissan hierarchy, the Versa Note is positioned between the Micra and the Sentra. This five-door hatchback shares its 109-horsepower, 1.6L engine with its little sister, the Micra, along with the five-speed manual gearbox.

Some cosmetic changes, including new colours and wheel designs, will attempt to convince buyers to take...note.
