The Nissan Versa and its hatchback version, the Versa Note, have actually succeeded in the subcompact world since late, thanks to their mix of good appearances, terrific freight space, loads of alternatives, and terrific fuel economy. Not pleased with leaving well adequate alone, we anticipate Nissan to totally upgrade the flexible Versa Keep in mind for 2019.
Nissan has actually stayed rather tight-lipped about the Versa Note’s redesign, so there are no information on exactly what it’ll appear like. Provided its success, we do not anticipate a clean-sheet redesign, however rather we prepare for Nissan structure on exactly what has actually made it effective. Search for the Versa Note to keep its high roofline and prevent opting for the swoopy appearance that has the tendency to consume freight space. We can likely aim to the new Maxima and the Sentra to obtain a feel for the style hints it’ll handle.
The existing Versa Note utilizes a 1.6-liter engine to inject 109 horse power into this small hatchback. While the information surrounding the upgraded car’s engine stay under covers, Nissan’s transfer to turbo on the Sentra might point towards a smaller-displacement, turbocharged engine in the Versa. This would not just inject more power into the hatchback, however it would likewise lower its weight and enhance fuel economy.
The IIHS hasn’t completely checked the Versa Note, however its brother or sister, the Versa sedan, has actually gone through a handful of the IIHS’ tests. In the moderate-overlap, side, and roof-strength tests, the Versa sedan got “great” scores. By the time the revamped Versa Note hits display room floorings, it might have sufficient innovative features to make a Top Safety Pick classification from the IIHS.
With its launching still more than a year away, we have no rates information on the upgraded Versa Note. That stated, we do not anticipate a big rate spike from the present model’s rate variety of $15,065 to $19,545 (location charges consisted of).
In this range, the Versa Note takes heat from the Honda Fit ($16,825 to $21,100), the Ford Fiesta Hatchback ($15,265 to $21,845), and the Hyundai Accent ($15,830 to $17,330). We anticipate to see the upgraded Versa Note in display rooms eventually in 2019.
