2015 Nissan Versa Note Named to 10 Best Tech-Savviest Cars Under $20k List

Every year, Kelley Blue Book issues lists of vehicle picks for various categories, one of which is the 10 Tech-Savviest Cars Under $20,000. Since the under $20k market is considered the entry-level market where most younger new car buyers are going, having a title like "tech savvy" is very important.

This is the second straight year that the Versa Note has been named to this particular KBB list. The award comes thanks to the car's available AroundView Monitor system (360-degree overhead view for parking) that is exclusive to the class, its hands-free texting option, and Bluetooth with Pandora capability.

Each of the vehicles included in the “10 Tech-Savviest Cars Under $20,000” list start below $20,000 according to Kelley Blue Book’s Fair Purchase Price (FPP), a tool designed to show shoppers what others are paying for a specific new car.

“The 2015 Versa Note is a great example of value, technology, style and comfort all rolled into one rock solid vehicle,” said Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Nissan Sales & Marketing and Operations. “With an extensive list of technology features, unique exterior and interior styling cues, ample cargo space and much more, the 2015 Note is the full package at a starting price that even the most frugal buyer can appreciate. We’re honored to once again be recognized by Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com.”

The Nissan Versa Note is the hatchback version of the Versa sedan and comprises about half of the model's overall sales, which lead the market in the subcompact segment.

All 2015 Versa Note models come equipped with an advanced 1.6-liter DOHC 4-cylinder engine with dual fuel injection and Twin CVTC (Continuously Variable Timing Control). The Versa Note S features a 5-speed manual transmission, while the S Plus, SV, SR and SL models are equipped with a next-generation Nissan Xtronic transmission.
