Model Highlights

The 2014 Nissan Versa is offered in both sedan and hatchback body styles. Four trim levels are offered on the Versa sedan: S, S Plus, SV and SL. All are powered by a 109-hp 1.6L 4-cylinder with continuously variable valve timing. In the S, a 5-speed manual transmission puts power to the front wheels, while a 4-speed automatic is optional. The other three trims are equipped with Nissan's Xtronic continuously variable transmission. When so equipped, the Versa sedan delivers an EPA estimate of 40 mpg on the highway.

Even the base S trim offers enough features to keep drivers and passengers comfortable. These include halogen headlights, air conditioning, an AM/FM/CD stereo with two auxiliary audio inputs, a tachometer, power steering, trip computer, tilt steering wheel and a 6-way adjustable driver's seat. In addition to the CVT, the S Plus adds a four-speaker audio system, cruise control, tilt steering, and a rear roof spoiler.

In the SV, buyers will find power mirrors, locks and windows, with driver's side one-touch auto up/down, upgraded trip computer, remote keyless entry, steering wheel-mounted cruise control, premium cloth seating and various interior accents. A key fob trunk release and a 60/40 split-fold rear seat are new for 2014.

The top-of-the-line SL includes 16-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, variable-speed windshield wipers, passenger visor vanity mirror, a 60/40 split-folding rear seat, silver and chrome interior accents, a premium 4-speaker stereo with MP3/WMA CD playback and iPod interface, a new 4.3-inch audio display, speed-sensitive volume control and steering-wheel-mounted audio controls.

Packaged options for the Versa sedan include an SV Convenience Package with Bluetooth and premium stereo and an SL Tech Package with navigation, RearView Monitor and SiriusXM satellite radio. Individual options are available across the model range and offer a rear spoiler, carpeted floor and trunk mats and special body and interior accents.

The new Versa Note 5-door hatchback features a unique exterior design beyond its configuration, including a distinctive grille and headlight treatment, as well as creased and sculpted sheet metal along the sides. Based upon Nissan's international-selling Note, the Versa Note is optioned much like its sedan counterpart and powered by the same 109-hp 1.6L four. A 5-speed manual is standard on the S, while the Xtronic CVT is standard on the rest of the range. Like the sedan the Versa Note comes in S, SL and SV trim. It features 115.5 cubic feet of interior volume, with best-in-class cargo space of 21.4 cubic feet. An available Divide-N-Hide Adjustable Floor provides enhanced interior utility, and the standard 60/40 split-fold rear seat makes carrying larger objects a snap.

Available technology on the Versa Note includes NissanConnect Navigation with points of interest powered by Google, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, and Nissan's Around View, which integrates a birds-eye view of the car's exterior in order to ease parking.

Model News

Following its 2012 redesign and minimal changes last year, the Nissan Versa sedan receives a few minor updates for 2014, including a revised suspension and steering set-up for improved handling. The Versa SL features a new tricot headliner and 4.3-inch audio display, as well as 16-inch alloy wheels. SV models feature a 60/40 split-fold rear seat, and base S models now include a tachometer. Pricing for the Versa sedan remains unchanged from 2013, with the base S model starting at $11,990. The price means the Versa is still the lowest-price car in America.

But the biggest news in the Versa realm is the all-new Versa Note 5-door hatchback. It replaces the current Versa hatchback, which was still rooted in the Versa's first generation. While based on the architecture that carries the current Versa sedan, including the same 109-hp 1.6L 4-cylinder engine and available continuously variable transmission, the Versa Note features its own unique styling. Nissan claims it will deliver up to 31 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway when equipped with the CVT and available active grille shutters. Available in S, S Plus and SV trims, the Versa Note will start at $13,990.

Value Writeup

As the most inexpensive car in America, the 2014 Nissan Versa offers exceptional value per dollar. Few other cars in the compact segment can match it for base price. Even the top-trim SL starts at $16,890. And that price buys a lot of car, both in features and in spaciousness. Fuel economy is strong too; the CVT-equipped Versa achieves up to 35 mpg combined, according to the EPA. With the addition of the attractive new Versa Note, hatchback lovers will have something to celebrate as well, as the car is loaded with intelligent interior features and functionality for people on the go, all while carrying a price tag below offerings like the Ford Fiesta and Honda Fit.

Mfg's Report Date
JUN 30, 2015


Potential Number of Units Affected

Nissan North America, Inc. (Nissan) is recalling certain model year 2014 Versa Sedan vehicles manufactured July 16, 2013, to January 29, 2014, 2013-2014 Cube vehicles manufactured July 3, 2013, to October 21, 2013, and 2013-2014 Juke vehicles manufactured July 3, 2013, to October 22, 2013. When exposed to hot temperatures, the affected vehicles have an engine start/stop button that may stick inside the button housing.

If the engine start/stop button gets stuck in the housing, road vibrations may cause the engine to shut off unexpectedly while the vehicle is being driven, increasing the risk of a crash.

Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will modify the start/stop switch housing, free of charge. The recall began on August 4, 2015. Owners may contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261.

Potential Number of Units Affected

Nissan North America, Inc. (Nissan) is recalling certain model year 2012-2015 Nissan Versa sedan vehicles manufactured June 9, 2011, to March 11, 2015, and 2014-2015 Nissan Versa Note vehicles manufactured April 23, 2013, to March 11, 2015. The affected vehicles have a center console trim panel that may catch the driver's shoe and delay the transition from the accelerator pedal to the brake pedal.

A delay in the application of the brake pedal would lengthen the distance needed to stop the vehicle and increase the risk of a crash.
