2018 Nissan Versa Note

What We Like

Enormous back seat; good fuel economy with the continuously variable transmission (CVT); attractive styling; low base price; versatile Divide-N-Hide cargo area

What We Don't

Steering wheel doesn't telescope; sparsely equipped interior on cheaper models; so-so crash-test results; with the loss of the SL trim went heated side mirrors and navigation

What's New in the 2018 Nissan Versa Note?

For 2018, the Versa Note SR gains standard Intelligent Key with push-button start, a vehicle engine immobilizer and Nissan's Easy Fill Tire Alert. These features are added to the SV Special Edition package, which replaces last year's SV Appearance package. The SL trim is dropped this year, while the S Plus is rebadged simply as S. See the 2018 Nissan Versa Note models for sale near you

Which Versa Note is the Best?

Our pick would be the SV. At just over $17,000, it's a good value, and it has all the power and entertainment accessories expected in a modern vehicle.

How Much Does a 2018 Nissan Versa Note Cost?

The 2018 Versa Note comes as a 5-door hatchback in three trims: S, SV and SR.

The S ($16,365) includes a CVT automatic transmission, 15-in steel wheels, crank windows, manual door locks and 4-way manual front seats that lack height adjustment, even for the driver. Power mirrors, air conditioning, Bluetooth and a 4-speaker CD audio system with an auxiliary input jack are standard, as are cruise control and an active grille shutter that reportedly improves fuel economy. Power windows and locks are still not available, however. S Plus options are similar to those on the base S model.

The SV ($17,265) adds power windows and locks, as well as keyless entry, upgraded interior cloth, a height-adjustable driver's seat with an armrest, NissanConnect with mobile apps and a 5-in color display, satellite radio (requires a subscription), cruise control, a USB/iPod input, a rearview camera, Divide-N-Hide storage, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with auxiliary audio controls, and bright interior accents.

The SR ($18,865) adds suede seat accents, variable intermittent front wipers, Intelligent Key with push-button start, Easy Fill Tire Alert, a vehicle engine immobilizer, a rear-seat armrest with cupholders, SR badging, 16-in aluminum-alloy wheels, a sporty grille and front and rear fascias, dark headlight surrounds, fog lights and a rear spoiler.

The SV Special Edition package adds Intelligent Key, push-button start, 15-in alloy wheels, fog lights and variable wipers.

Trunk space in the Versa Note measures a useful 21.4 cu ft. behind the rear seatbacks, and that number nearly doubles if you fold them down. Moreover, the available Divide-N-Hide storage system adds a concealed cargo-floor compartment with a cover that can be lowered or removed to facilitate serious hauling tasks. It's a simple yet effective system, and we're surprised it took someone this long to dream it up.

2018 Nissan Versa Note vs the competition

2018 Chevrolet Sonic -- The Sonic has a tiny back seat compared to the Versa Note's, but it's more rewarding to drive, especially with the optional turbocharged engine.

2018 Ford Fiesta -- Often overlooked, the Fiesta continues to be one of our favorites because it's so fun to drive, especially in the ST trim.

2018 Honda Fit -- The Honda Fit continues to stand alone as the versatility champ among small hatchbacks, offering SUV-like cargo capacity in a compact package.

Used Hyundai Elantra -- A 2013-2016 Hyundai Elantra offers more power, more room, more options and, if you purchase through a certified pre-owned program, a much better warranty.
