Before its debut at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show, Nissan has announced the pricing (in advance) for its 2017 Versa Note hatchback. Customers in the US can get the entry level variant at $15,480 (Versa Note 1.6 S Plus Xtronic). The Versa Note will be available in four different models.

All models will be equipped with 1.6L DOHC 16V 4cylinder engine and will be paired with the latest Xtronic transmission. The 2017 Versa Note can deliver at least 39mpg EPA-estimated fuel economy on the highway. The next generation X tronic comes with a redeveloped D-step Logic Control for smoother acceleration.

This includes the integrated turn signals for each side mirror, 16-inch machine-finished sport alloy wheels, sporty JUKE-style leather wrapped steering wheel, suede-like seat upholsteries, side sills in body colour, rear spoiler and fog lamps.
Nissan’s top-of-the-line hatchback model (Versa Note SL) will have a wide array of special features.

It will also come with Voice Recognition for audio and navigation including Travel Link, Traffic (and Sirius XM by subscription). Other equipment includes a 5.8 colour touch screen display with NissanConnectSM Navigation and Mobile Application.
The 2017 model year S-Plus and SV variants come with a new wheel cover design. A set of redesigned 16-inch alloy wheels go with the entry level. For the interiors, the latest Versa Note SL, SR and SV will have the USB Auxiliary ports and the newly added 12-Volt outlet at the centre console. Larger cup holders also come with these new models.
Aside from the new forward-looking front design, all variants will now have the Versa Note SR’s sporty rear. The newly enhanced exterior also includes Nissan’s signature swept back halogen headlamps and “V-Motion” front grille. New colours will also be available such as Deep Blue Pearl and Monarch Orange.
The new Versa Note is expected to be out on sale nationwide this coming 22nd of November at all Nissan dealers. The first public showing is on the 18th-27th November at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show.
