Browse the most affordable vehicles in the Nissan lineup, and both the Versa and Versa Note will likely grab your attention. The 2016 Versa starts at just $11,990 while the Versa Note starts at a still-budget-friendly $14,180. Other than the pricing, there are a few important differences between these two models.
The biggest difference between the Versa and Versa Note is their body style. The Versa is a sedan while the Versa Note is a hatchback. This difference in style means that the Versa Note is more spacious, offering a bit more headroom and cargo room. When you compare the specifications, you will notice that the Versa Note has more front headroom and more second-row legroom and headroom. It is also important to notice that because it is a sedan, the Versa only has 14.9 cubic feet for cargo, which is within its trunk. The hatchback design of the Versa Note gives you 18.8 cubic feet behind the rear seats. Folding them down increases this to 38.3 cubic feet.
If your goal is customizing your Nissan, then the Versa Note offers slightly more choices. The Versa Sedan is available as the S, S Plus, SV, or SL trim. The Versa Note, however, adds an SR trim between the SV and SL, giving you some sporty features.
There are also minor differences in the features found on the Versa and Versa Note. To compare the vehicles in detail, talk to the team at Jack Ingram Nissan in Montgomery, Alabama.

Even a highly fuel-efficient vehicle like the Nissan Versa can use some help from you to make the most of its great gas mileage. With a few simple steps and some that aren’t as easy, you can boost your savings by reducing the number of times you have to go to the gas station.
If you have a Nissan Versa, the good news is that you are already on your way to cutting gas spending. This model is highly efficient, so you will save hundreds to thousands of dollars a year on gas automatically.
Stay on Top of Your Versa Maintenance
Every once in a while, take the time to bring your Versa to your local Montgomery mechanic for a thorough checkup. While making repairs or adjustments will cost you money initially, it will prevent the need for major, more costly repairs. Best of all, fixing an issue like a broken oxygen sensor can boost your gas mileage by up to 40 percent. Just changing the air filter may improve it by 10 percent.
Change the Oil in Your Versa
Changing your oil doesn’t have to be a hassle. Think of it as a way to boost fuel economy. When you change the oil, use the one recommended by Nissan for your Versa. This will boost mileage by 1–2 percent. Using the wrong one, on the other hand, can reduce it by the same amount.
Inflate Your Versa Tires Properly
Take a look at your owner’s manual and make sure your Versa’s tires are inflated to the right amount. Every pound drop in pressure for all four tires can reduce your gas mileage by 0.4 percent, costing you money.
Drop Some Weight
If you have extra items in your Versa that you don’t need there, take them out. Just getting rid of 100 pounds in your car can lower your gas consumption by 2 percent, and because the Versa is small, you will notice more benefits with this model than a larger vehicle. Also, try not to carry stuff on the roof unless you have to since this increases drag and reduces efficiency by about 5 percent.
Don’t Idle Your Versa
Idling may make sense at time, but it wastes a lot of gas and you don’t move anywhere. Do whatever you can to avoid being stuck in rush-hour traffic in Montgomery, and try not to idle when waiting for a friend.
Follow the Speed Limit
Following the speed limit does more than just keep you safe. When you go over 60 mph, your gas mileage will quickly decrease. You usually will end up spending 20 cents more for each gallon for every 5 mph you go over 60.
Drive Your Versa Consistently
Speeding followed by braking can reduce your gas mileage by around 5 percent during city driving and a whopping 33 percent during highway driving. Avoid this unnecessary gas guzzling by driving more smoothly and using cruise control.
Look for Tax Credits
Although most tax credits are for diesel or hybrid models, it’s worth investigating. You may find one that applies to you and saves you money.
Don’t be afraid to compare gas prices around Montgomery to save some money at the pump. Just factor in the extra time spent driving to a cheaper gas station.

For the 2016 model year, Nissan updated most of the vehicles in its lineup in at least some way. This means that the Versa Sedan will see several updates.

You will still get a great value, technology, and roominess for the price of a small car.
