Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. and owners of the 2014 Nissan Versa Note have a reason to be very happy – the vehicle has been named one of the "10 coolest new cars under $ 18,000" by Kelley Blue Book. The recognition comes as the sales of the 2014 Nissan Versa Note increased by 30.5 per cent in May 2014 alone.

In order to compete for the title of being one of the 10 coolest new cars under $ 18,000 a car must meet Kelley Blue Book's two critical criteria – fun-to-drive and fun-to-own – to determine a vehicle's "cool factor". In addition the vehicles must be available for purchase at USD 18,000 or less, using Kelley Blue Book's exclusive Fair Purchase Price – a pricing tool that shows what others have been paying for a new car that week.

"The Nissan Versa Note is truly 'the door to more,' offering an exceptional combination of style, comfort, technology and cargo space at a price even the most economical car buyers can appreciate," said Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Nissan Sales & Marketing and Operations. "Featuring a sleek, modern design with enhanced aerodynamics for improved fuel economy, and class-exclusive Around View® Monitor, the Versa Note is "cool" in a variety of ways – from the road, to the parking lot, to your wallet."


The 2014 Nissan Versa Note starts at just $13,990 and offers a 5-door hatchback design. It is available in a range of well-equipped models – S, S Plus, SV, SR and SL with each one of them coming with an advanced 1.6-liter DOHC 4-cylinder engine with dual fuel injection. Models equipped with an Xtronic gearbox achieve US 40 mpg highway fuel economy (5.88 liters per 100 km).

The 2014 Nissan Versa Note is equipped with NissanConnectSM with Navigation and Mobile Apps, Hands-Free Text Messaging Assistant, Nissan Intelligent Key®, RearView Monitor, Bluetooth® Streaming Audio and class-exclusive Around View® Monitor, Divide-N-Hide® Adjustable Floor (adjustable rear load floor height), heated front seats and 16-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.
