Versa accentuates its popular forward-looking style even more with a new front fascia and “V-Motion” grille that flows seamlessly with the swept-back halogen headlights. While now sharing a closer family resemblance with Nissan Sentra, Altima and Maxima, the new design retains the vibrant Versa Note personality, especially when wrapped in new Monarch Orange or Deep Blue Pearl exterior colors. In addition, Versa Note S Plus, SV and SL grades receive the sporty rear fascia previously available only on Versa Note SR.
Other enhancements for the model year include a new wheel cover design for S Plus and SV grades and a revised 16-inch aluminum-alloy wheel design for the SL trim level. Inside, the 2017 Versa Note includes a number of customer input-driven changes, such as larger cupholders, the addition of a second 12-volt outlet for SV, SR and SL trims and the relocation of the first 12-volt outlet and USB auxiliary port to the front of the center console.
The Versa is offered in a range of four well-equipped models: Note, S Plus, SV, SR and SL. Each model is powered by a 1.6-liter DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine, matched with a next-generation, Nissan Xtronic transmission, helping them achieve up to an EPA-estimated 39 miles per gallon highway fuel economy. The Xtronic transmission has received new D-Step Logic Control tuning for improved acceleration feel.
