This 2017, Nissan decided to give a bit of a makeover on their Versa Note, which include the new wheels, new exterior colors and the redesigned headlights. The Note still carries the same swept-back headlights and V-motion grille as seen on the Sentra, Maxima and Altima sedans. Even though there is not so much of a difference compared to the original pre-facelift model, it is still a notably handsome and stunning improvement. Things also look better with the latest Monarch Orange color for the Note.
There aren’t any more changes that can be seen here, however. A look at the cabin, you will see the bigger cupholders while the 12-volt and the USB outlets are also moved around yet that’s just about it. The rest pretty much carries over, which include the 1.6-liter of naturally aspirated 4-cylinder engine, which makes 107 pound feet of torque and 109 hp and complimented by its continuously variable transmission. Even if Versa Note could have a 5-speed manual, the only transmission choice for everyone is Xtronic CVT. According to Nissan, the latest Versa Note achieves up to 39mpg on the road, down from the 40mpg in the previous year.
When it comes to pricing, it remains consistent. There’s no base Versa S trim with S Plus now serving its entry-level model. Like last year, it costs about $15,000. From there, the higher-end SR, SL, and SV trims come in different prices ranging from $16,000 to $19,000. The SL model comes with a 5.8” touch screen with running apps and navigation. Some of the apps include Around View Monitor, Travel Link, and SiriusXM Traffic.
Nissan said that the recently updated 2017 Versa Note will be unveiled at Los Angeles and it will arrive at the dealers not very long after that.
