Nissan Versa

The Car Guide rating 75%(view ratings)
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. The automatic transmission, however, is a CVT, which gets D-Step Shift Logic in 2018 to make it more pleasant. Some cosmetic changes, including new colours and wheel designs, will attempt to convince buyers to take...note.
