2019 Nissan Versa Note Specs, Release Dates, Prices

Following a late 2018 model year update, which saw the addition of standard RearView Monitor and 7.0-inch color audio system touchscreen display, the 2019 Nissan Versa Note adds available NissanConnect featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and SiriusXM Satellite Radio to SV and SR grade levels.

The 2019 Nissan Versa Note sporty hatchback design, which differentiates it from the Versa sedan, is designed for buyers looking for an added level of style to go with a hatchback 5-door utility. Its popular forward-looking style features a "V-Motion" grille that flows seamlessly with the swept-back halogen headlights, sharing a family resemblance with Nissan Sentra, Altima and Maxima.

The roomy interior is a perfect match for the stylish 2019 Nissan Versa Note exterior. The five-passenger cabin provides a spacious total interior volume of 112.9 cubic feet and ample cargo space of 18.8 cubic feet. A low cargo area liftover height provides easy loading and unloading of heavy or bulky objects. The interior also offers front headroom of 40.8 inches and rear legroom of 38.3 inches – making Versa Note both adult comfortable and kid friendly.

Interior versatility is enhanced through use of an available Divide-N-Hide Adjustable Floor. The Divide-N-Hide system creates a flat cargo area. Lifting up the cargo floor board reveals a hidden area underneath to keep valuables out of sight. When more space is needed for carrying taller or bulkier items, lowering the floor board creates a deeper cargo well. The floor board is designed to stay in the vehicle yet is easily removed if desired. It's a simple solution to balance the need for a flat load floor or maximum cargo capacity or security.


With entry-level buyers looking for value not just in the initial purchase price but also in day-to-day operation, the front-wheel drive 2019 Nissan Versa Note is designed to provide a rewarding combination of fuel economy and performance.

Anchoring the powertrain is a 1.6-liter HR16DE 4-cylinder engine rated at 109 horsepower @ 6,000 rpm and 107 lb-ft of torque @ 4,400 rpm. The engine includes a range of cutting-edge technologies, including a dual fuel injector system that allows a wider injection of fuel (versus traditional single injector systems), with the smaller nozzles delivering a spray approximately 57 percent finer than the previous generation single injector design's particle size to help achieve more complete combustion.

The compact, lightweight engine also utilizes a Twin Continuously Variable Timing Control (CVTC) system mounted on intake and exhaust ports, similar to the system used on the flagship Nissan Maxima. Using a CVTC on the outlet port increases thermal efficiency, decreases inhalation resistance and offers an approximate four percent improvement in fuel efficiency (over the previous engine design).

2019 Nissan Versa Note is offered with a standard advanced Xtronic transmission with D-step Logic Control, which simulates shifts, giving a more natural acceleration feeling without holding a high rpm constant. The Xtronic transmission allows continuous change of the transmission gear ratio by connecting the two pulleys with a metallic belt and changing their diameter by using hydraulic pressure. Aiding efficiency is an integrated auxiliary gearbox using planetary gearing. The Xtronic features a transmission ratio of 7.3:1, broader than those of typical 7-speed automatic transmissions. A transmission oil warmer transfers engine coolant heat to the transmission oil, helping reduce transmission friction during cold starts, increasing short trip fuel economy.

In addition to the advanced engine and transmission designs, excellent everyday drivability is provided by an independent strut front suspension with stabilizer bar, torsion beam rear axle with integrated stabilizer bar, and electric power steering.
