Nissan is giving its Versa Note a mid-year refresh, adding a host of trim-specific features and overall updates. It was just last year when Nissan updated the Versa Note with a revised exterior appearance. Now, the automaker is adding several more upgrades to keep it competitive. Nissan is changing up its trim names and offerings. For the 2018.5 model year, the Versa Note is available in SR, SV, and S – replacing S Plus – trims. Gone is the SL trim.

The top-tier SR trim adds push-button start and Nissan’s Easy Fill Tire Alert system. The SV trim features the SV Special Edition Package, which is just a renamed version of the SV Appearance Package. All Versa Note models receive a rearview camera and a seven-inch color touchscreen audio system. The audio system comes with Bluetooth, Siri Eyes Free, USB connection, auxiliary port, and four speakers.

These few new features command a higher price. The 2018.5 Nissan Versa Note starts at $13,195 (including the $885 destination fee), which is a modest $200 increase. The SV trim also increases by $200 to $15,335 while the SR trim increases by $100 to $16,725. Both the rearview camera and infotainment system are welcome additions, but the camera is now mandated by law in the United States for new vehicles, making it less unique.

The Nissan Versa Note is one of the cheaper subcompact offerings on the market while leading the segment in several areas, including interior roominess, cargo space, and fuel economy. The added infotainment system brings the entire Versa Note lineup closer to its competition in terms of creature comforts and technology – things customers are looking for and expect in today's cars.
