2015 Nissan Versa Note SR Debuts at Chicago Auto Show

By Matthew Askari | February 06, 2014
The 2015 Nissan Versa Note SR makes its debut at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show, and looks to add personality to the Versa Note lineup. Nissan's smallest segment in the U.S. will also receive another trim this Spring, when the 2015 Nissan Versa Note SL completes the range. Essentially a way for Nissan to expand options for buyers shopping the sub-compact hatchback market, the 2015 Versa Note SR adds new style as well as a couple new features. Powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, the Versa Note SR is capable of a humble 109 horsepower, but also yields a 40 mpg highway estimate, with 31 mpg city and 35 mpg combined. The sportier look begins with a unique grille and front-end, dark headlight treatment, and standard fog lights with black and chrome accents. The five-door hatchback also sports body-colored spoilers, redesigned side mirrors with integrated turn signals, a unique rear spoiler, and rides on 16-inch aluminum-alloy wheels. On the inside the 2015 Nissan Versa Note SR gets a "370Z-inspired" leather-wrapped steering wheel, suede-like fabric seats with orange accents and double stitching, a piano black center panel with silver accents and chrome knobs. A Divide-N-Hide Adjustable Floor comes as part of the SR Convenience Package, which has available features like a 5.0-inch color display, rearview monitor, streaming audio via Bluetooth, and NissanConnect apps. And while the Versa Note SR plays to the sportier side, the Versa Note SL will add some premium features in a distinctly non-premium segment. Feature such as the 5.0-inch color monitor, rearview camera, and heated front seats will all be standard. The 2015 Versa Note SR and SL models arrive to complete the Versa Note lineup. While sales have been positive for Nissan, we came away unimpressed with the original Versa Note. We like the clever storage options, but the lackluster interior seemed uninspired and dated in the first year of its life-cycle. The addition of the SR and SL help make the Versa Note more competitive in the segment. Source: Nissan
