Day by Day Review: 2014 Nissan Versa Note car test drives nissan daily car reviews

While last week’s tester was quirky I think this week’s tester could be classified as cute. Although I hear Editor Jacob Black didn’t think so, it certainly seems so to me, with its cheery face and short overhanging rear (tail) — it almost makes me smile when I look at it.

My first impression when I stepped into this tiny little runabout was of amazement as well. Wow, does this thing have a lot of space, at least a lot more than it looks like from the outside.

This little car starts at just over $13,000 for the base model, bump to SL trim like my tester and you are into the 16s. Check a few boxes like the automatic transmission (it is a CVT by the way) and the technology package and out the door with everything included you are just over $20k.

That technology package is quite the deal too, at least in terms of OEM offerings. $720 gets you Navigation, XM Traffic, streaming audio via Bluetooth, Hands free text messaging, POI’s via Google and an around view monitor which gives you forward, reverse and side view camera’s — not that this little runabout really needs all those cameras.

Over the base model, the SL trim I’m driving adds things like: push-button start, keyless entry, fog lights, heated seats, rear view camera, power windows and door locks, leather-wrapped steering wheel and a few other little trim items.

MSRP as tested (including destination): $20,720
