2017 Nissan Versa Sedan vs. 2017 Nissan Versa Note Portage IN

Subcompact cars have been a growing trend in the automotive industry over the past decade or so. Car buyers are drawn to their fuel-efficiency and usually affordable price tag. Every brand now has their own subcompact car model to cater to this growing need, and each claim to be better than the rest. Nissan happens to have two of the best subcompact cars available, with the 2017 Nissan Versa Sedan and 2017 Nissan Versa Note. But what's the difference between the two models?

As you can guess from the name, the two models are very much similar (think Nissan Rogue and Nissan Rogue Sport). The 2017 Nissan Versa Note is a slight modification from its 2017 Nissan Versa Sedan parent model. We'll break down the key features and specifications of the two models so you can make an informed decision between these two great subcompact cars.

Clearly, both models offer great value in the subcompact car class and their own advantages. The 2017 Nissan Versa Sedan is the more traditional sedan car that happens to get a great fuel economy and has a surprisingly low starting price. It's bigger than the 2017 Nissan Versa Note and has a very similar exterior design in other Nissan models like the Maxima or Sentra or Altima. The Versa Note, on the other hand, has a more unique look due to its hatchback design.

You might be wondering why the 2017 Nissan Versa Note has a higher MSRP, but essentially, you're paying for better fuel economy and more cargo space. Because of the 2017 Nissan Versa Note's hatchback design, it's smaller than the Nissan Versa Sedan, which allows it to get a better fuel economy, but will still give you much more cargo volume.

It will come down to your personal needs and preferences when it comes to choosing between the two subcompact cars. The 2017 Nissan Versa Sedan is more affordable and still delivers a great fuel economy and trunk space, while the 2017 Nissan Versa Note will give you even better fuel economy and a larger maximum interior cargo volume, but at a slightly higher price.
