2016 Nissan Versa vs. 2016 Nissan Versa Note

For many drivers who visit us at McNeill Nissan, their purchasing decision comes down to pure logistics. It comes down to things such as price, passenger space and fuel economy, and for buyers who like to be enormously thorough with their research before they sign on the dotted line, two Nissan models are extremely popular: the Versa sedan and the Versa Note hatchback. Each offers a great deal of versatility for buyers -- it’s right there in the name, after all -- and does so at a very accommodating price. But how do the 2016 Nissan Versa sedan and 2016 Nissan Versa Note hatchback compare side by side?

First off, let’s get to the basics. The Versa and Versa Note share many characteristics in common, with one major difference: The Versa is your standard four-door sedan, while the Versa Note slides comfortably into the hatchback segment. As such, buyers of the Versa Note enjoy a different sort of functionality than the Versa sedan, due to the welcoming nature of the rear hatchback. All told, the Versa Note delivers slightly more passenger volume, while offering more than twice as much cargo volume. For this reason, the Versa Note is largely popular with students and those who commonly carry large cargo loads, while the Versa sedan strikes a chord with commuters and young families.

Is the Versa or Versa Note Right for You?

Although there are some fundamental differences between the 2016 Nissan Versa sedan and 2016 Nissan Versa Note, both can credibly claim to offer terrific performance and fuel efficiency. Each is powered by a 1.6L inline four-cylinder engine, which is rated to deliver up to 40 highway mpg (with the Xtronic CVT) and 109 horsepower. It should come as little surprise that both models are enormously popular with urban drivers; by combining agile performance with top-level fuel economy, each Versa model goes above and beyond many competing models.

That isn’t to say that the Versa and Versa Note don’t go the extra mile in terms of features and amenities. Each model offers tech options such as the NissanConnect Mobile Apps companion, which allows users to easily access turn-by-turn navigation, streaming music and even social media. Meanwhile, buyers may enjoy spectacular safety features -- including an Around View Monitor on the Versa Note -- that make reversing and maneuvering extremely easy. And, with the class-exclusive Tire Pressure Monitoring System available on each model, drivers never need to worry that their tire pressure might be lower than normal.
