    Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

    You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

    5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

    4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

    3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

    2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

    1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

    2018 Nissan Versa Note OVERVIEW

    Less is more, the old adage goes, and Nissan has taken that mantra to heart with the utilitarian 2018 Versa Note. Boasting one of the lowest starting prices of all new cars available on the market, the Versa Note gives buyers contemporary styling in a practical hatchback body style, all for a fire sale price.

    What's New for 2018

    Nissan has toyed with the Versa Note lineup for 2018. 2017's S Plus sees the "Plus" moniker disappear, and the top-dog SL has been put to pasture. Otherwise, changes are negligible.

    Choosing Your Nissan Versa Note

    The prominent creases and folds on the doors and fenders visually differentiate the Note from the mechanically-identical Versa sedan. This contemporary design cleverly contains 112.9 cubic feet of total interior volume. With the rear seats in their upright position, cargo space is an impressive 18.8 cubic feet. Speaking of that second row, there's class-above levels of legroom.

    All Versa Notes are powered by a 1.6-liter four cylinder that makes 109 horsepower and 107 pounds-feet of torque – the only transmission choice is a continuously variable transmission. Fuel economy as per EPA estimates is 31 miles per gallon city, 39 highway, and 34 combined – a rate of consumption that is almost as miserly as the starting price itself.

    Each of the remaining three trim levels - S, SV, SR – give buyers a distinct flavor of Versa Note. The SR offers a sporty flair while the S provides basic transportation, and the mid-level SV gives consumers plenty of comfort and convenience doodads but without the SR's styling tweaks.

    Even in this low-priced arena, safety remains a top priority for buyers. Nissan acknowledges this with standard front and side curtain airbags, traction and stability control. That said, the company could go further – active safety systems are totally absent on the Versa Note.

    Seven colors are available, including an attractive Deep Blue Pearl and Cayenne Red.

    S

    With a price of $16,365 (including the $885 destination charge), the Versa Note S is not only the cheapest Versa Note, but one of the cheapest cars in America, period. To make such a price point possible, Nissan stripped the base Versa Note of nearly all creature comforts. The short list of standard features include 15-inch steel rims with wheel covers, a four-speaker sound system with AM/FM/CD and auxiliary input, four-way manually-adjustable front seats and Bluetooth capability. Air conditioning is also standard, so buyers can stay cool while hand-cranking the windows and jimmying the manually-actuated door locks.

    Optional 15-inch wheels tack on another $495 to the bottom line. These wheels are also available on the SV trim. A Rockford Fosgate audio system costs $595 and adds two six-inch subwoofers, bringing the speaker count up to six. This upgrade can be ordered on all trim levels.

    SV

    The $17,265 SV trim breathes some twenty-first century life into the Versa Note. Opting for this trim gives buyers power windows and locks, keyless entry, a five-inch touchscreen (with a function that can relay text messages), a leather wrapped steering wheel, SiriusXM radio, cruise control, and upgraded cloth seats.

    For an additional $500, the Special Edition Package is available. This adds a tire pressure monitoring system, 15-inch wheels, push-button start, and an anti-theft alarm.

    SR

    Choosing an entry-level car shouldn’t mean entry-level styling, and to that end Nissan offers buyers the $18,865 SR trim. The SR spices things up with 16-inch wheels, fog lights, body-colored side sills, a rear spoiler, and a sportier, leather-wrapped steering wheel. Buyers are also treated to nicer suede-like seats, keyless ignition, TPMS, and an alarm.

    CarsDirect Tip

    The mid-level SV is the sweet spot of the Versa Note lineup. It offers all the comfort and convenience options that are unavailable in S trim, and does not festoon the car with pseudo-performance bits like the more expensive SR. Everything worth having and nothing more, the SV best embodies the philosophy of entry-level transportation.
