Nissan Versa Note SR is Sporty in Looks Only


The subcompact hatchback segment has a handful of sport-oriented models, but what "sport" means varies greatly by automaker. There's the turbocharged Ford Fiesta ST on the one end, which is a heavily revised version of the Fiesta. Less extreme is the Chevrolet Sonic RS with its suspension and styling changes. Even the current Honda Fit Sport had a revised suspension, but there's no word on the upcoming version.

Then there's the new Versa Note SR, which adopts different styling inside and out — and some unique wheels — but otherwise it is the same performer as the regular model.

Cars.com Reviews the 2014 Nissan Versa Note


Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays calls Nissan's redesigned hatchback "basic, affordable transportation." Its loud powertrain and cut-rate-looking interior do not impress, but its price tag does. Mays says bargain shoppers will find this "blue-light special" irresistible.

2014 Nissan Versa Note: Car Seat Check


Although Nissan's hatchback is compact, there's nothing small about its backseat. The Versa Note was redesigned for 2014, and accessible Latch anchors, a flat seat cushion and loads of legroom made it easy to install our child-safety seats into it. In fact, it earned high marks across all areas of testing in our Car Seat Check.

2014 Nissan Versa Note Video

For those who missed the hatchback after it disappeared during Nissan Versa's 2013 redesign, it's back. Now called the Versa Note, Nissan improves on the sedan version's bland looks, but its value for bargain shoppers remains constant, says Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays. This sub-$15,000 car is plenty roomy for front and rear occupants and zippy enough to get into the highway groove. Some chintzy interior materials and unimpressive cargo space disappoint, but not nearly enough to sour the overall harmony of the fun, practical Versa Note. Watch the video above.

Recall Alert: 2014 Nissan Versa Note


Nissan is recalling nearly 13,000 model-year 2014 Versa Note subcompact hatchbacks due to weak, loose or missing bolts that could result in injury to backseat passengers or reduced crash performance, the Detroit News reported.

The affected vehicles were manufactured before July 5 in Mexico and distributed mainly in North America, according to the newspaper. Bolts holding the rear seatback latches may not be strong enough, increasing the risk of injury for backseat passengers in a crash. Other bolts securing the body to the undercarriage may not have been tightened enough, or they could be missing in some cases, weakening the car's rear-crash performance; Nissan stated that it is unaware of injuries or accidents related to the bolt issue.

Nissan will notify owners starting in mid-August, and dealers will check the bolts and fix or replace them for free, the newspaper reported. Owners can call Nissan at 800-647-7261 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov, for more info.
