2017 Nissan Versa can “Note” it’s a refresh image

The 2017 model year Nissan Versa Note has incurred a host of changes for the new model year, which include modified headlights and different body shades.

The new Versa Note has refreshed headlights, new wheels, and new exterior colors. The Note now comes with the V-motion grille and swept-back headlights that buyers can have on other Nissan models such as the Sentra, Altima, and Maxima sedans. It’s a subtle differentiation from the pre-refresh model but nonetheless one that better inscribes the current design language of the company. There’s also a great choice in adding the new Monarch Orange color, as well.


Moving inside the cabin, Nissan notes they refitted the Versa with bigger cupholders and the 12-volt and USB outlets have been repositioned. The rest are carryovers, such as the 1.6-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine packing 109 horsepower and 107 pound-feet of torque, linked to a continuously variable transmission. Prices have been reshuffled a bit – the former base model Versa S has been ditched, so the entry level is now the S Plus trim – costing the same as on the 2016 model year, $15,480 without $865 for destination. The upscale SV, SR, and SL trims will kick off at $16,380, $17,980, and $18,710, respectively. The restyled Versa Note will be on show at the Los Angeles event next week.
