The Nissan Versa Note has been discontinued and 2019 will be its final model year here in the U.S. The news came courtesy of Nissan back in April when early order guides revealed production was set to end, with only the sedan going forward.
The Note was first introduced for 2014 as a replacement to the old Versa Hatchback. Boasting fuel economy of up to 39 mpg highway, the car was an appealing choice for frugal buyers but faced stiff competition from the likes of the Honda Fit and Toyota Yaris.
Broadly speaking, car sales have suffered as shoppers opt for a broad range of crossover SUVs. Even the recently-released Kicks starts under $19,000 but comes with features like auto emergency braking. In contrast, the Note never got that feature, with the last major change being a backup camera.
