5 reasons to buy the 2014 Nissan Versa Note

1. Well-designed, straightforward interior 

Given that the main goal of the 2014 Nissan Versa Note is to get people from point A to point B in the most effective way possible, it’s only fitting that it comes with a kind of cabin that supports that goal. It may not have too many amenities or luxury touches, but it’s designed with optimal ergonomics for all passengers in mind. Controls for various vehicle systems are uncomplicated and easy to reach and use, and the gauges are simple and easy to read. 

2. Comfortable enough for four adults 

While it looks small from the outside, the 2014 Nissan Versa Note is quite spacious on the inside. It has comfortable, supportive seats, with enough room for four adults. Those in the back get 38 inches of headroom and 38.3 inches of legroom, with front head and legroom measuring 40.8 inches and 41.3 inches, respectively. This is a surprising level of roominess for such a compact car, and it makes it a suitable option for long trips, as well. 

3. Surprisingly spacious storage area 

Another benefit that comes with owning a 2014 Nissan Versa Note is its decent storage capacity. This five-door hatchback has a surprisingly large and useful storage area. It comes with an 18.8-cu-ft trunk, which is comparable to the cargo capacity of much bigger cars. If you fold down the rear seat, you get an amazing 38.3 cu-ft for luggage, grocery bags, or sporting equipment, among other necessities. 

4. Excellent mileage 

Considering it’s a compact vehicle that’s not performance-oriented, it’s only normal to expect a good fuel economy from the Nissan Versa Note. The 2014 model year delivers well in this area, returning great mileage that’ll make each journey that little bit easier. With the base 1.6L four-cylinder engine and a five-speed manual transmission, the 2014 Nissan Versa Note gets an EPA-estimated 30 mpg combined.


5. Adequate engine 

The 2014 Nissan Versa Note is designed for daily driving in urban areas, and it doesn’t need to deliver a sports-car-like performance. With that in mind, it's only normal that it comes with a small, but productive engine. It comes with a standard 1.6L four-cylinder, that generates 109 hp and 107 lb-ft of torque. It’s paired with a five-speed manual transmission, for a powertrain that results in a quiet, composed ride and does not require too much gas. That’s exactly what you want from a subcompact commuter car.
