Since 2007, when the Nissan Versa first came to the U.S, it became a favorite by many. In 2013, Nissan revamped the Versa for its 2nd generation and added the 'Note’ name to designate the Hatchback version from Sedan.
This time around, the 2015 Nissan Versa-Note SR spices up the interior and exterior that adds comfort along with a fun driving experience.

* 2014 Versa Note S Plus US specs
Under the hood, the car is powered by an inline 4, 1.6 liter dual overhead cam VVT engine. This produces 109 horsepower at 6,000 rpm with a torque of 107 lbs ft at 4,400 rpm.
The car rides on 16-inch bright alloy wheels in dark-finished contrasting pockets. A spoiler over the rear window give the SR a menacing aura; the sleeker upgraded side mirrors together with chrome SR badges help the Versa Note look more grown up.
The steeply angled hood together with the windshield helps create excellent forward visibility just like the tiny small side windows next to the outside mirrors. The car’s tall roof-line allows great visibility trend all around the car.
The inside of the SR trim has been treated to a make-over. Seats have a nice looking orange strip down the center with matching orange stitching. This orange contrasts very well with dark suede fabric seats.
The car's leather-wrapped steering wheel was inspired by the 350Z and even comes with radio controls, Bluetooth and some trip computer buttons.
Other features include cup-holders and a 6-way adjustable driver’s seat (manual).
Another interesting feature is the false floor located in the cargo area; this provides a 6 inch deep of hidden cargo space that is good for hiding tools, valuables and supplies.
