2014 Nissan Versa Note Priced From $14,780

Second-most affordable subcompact 5-door on the market.

Despite being an all-new vehicle, the 2014 Nissan Versa Note may be slightly cheaper than the vehicle it replaces. Nissan says pricing for the 2014 Versa Note starts at $14,780, including $790 in destination charges.

That figure, which buys a 2014 Versa Note 1.6 S with a five-speed manual transmission, is roughly $680 less than the Note’s predecessor, the 2013 Versa Hatch S M/T. It also renders the Versa Note one of the most affordable subcompact five-door hatchbacks on the market. Although it is more expensive than the 2013 Kia Rio ($14,600), it undercuts the 2014 Ford Fiesta ($15,395), the 2013 Mazda2 ($15,515), the 2013 Hyundai Accent ($15,590), the 2013 Chevrolet Sonic ($15,595), the 2013 Toyota Yaris ($16,190), and the 2013 Honda Fit ($16,215).

2014 Nissan Versa Note 1.6 S models are fairly sparsely equipped right off the bat, but do include air conditioning, power exterior mirrors, and an AM/FM/CD audio receiver with an auxiliary input. Options are limited to 15-inch aluminum wheels for $700, or a $760 Sport Value Package, which bundles the aforementioned wheels with a rear spoiler, which is otherwise available as a $310 dealer-installed accessory.

Customers seeking an automatic transmission need to step up to the $16,080 2014 Versa Note 1.6 S Plus model, which replaces the manual with a continuously-variable transmission. The S Plus model also adds both cruise control and an active grille shutter. Options are otherwise identical to the 2014 Nissan Versa Note 1.6 S model.

The 2014 Versa Note 1.6 SV model, which starts at $16,780, is mechanically identical to the S Plus, but adds some upgraded content. In addition to upgraded cloth seat fabric and interior trim, 2014 Nissan Versa Note SV models gain Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity, remote keyless entry, power windows and door locks, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, and so on.

For another $1700, 2014 Nissan Versa Note SV models can be fitted with a confusingly named SL package, which in turn adds 16-inch aluminum wheels, push-button entry and ignition, heated front seats, fog lamps, variable intermittent windshield wipers, a touchscreen audio system (complete with USB input and SiriusXM radio), a rear-view camera, a fold-down armrest for the rear seat, tire pressure monitoring system, and Nissan’s Divide-n-Hide adjustable load floor. Toss in another $800, and your 2014 Versa Note SV gains the technology package, which adds navigation, Nissan’s 360-degree Around View Monitor, and NissanConnect infotainment functionality.

2014 Nissan Versa Note hatchbacks should at dealers nationwide by the end of this month.
