KBB Names Nissan Versa Note As One of 10 Best Back-to-School Cars of 2015

For kids headed back to school and in need of a car, the Versa Note makes the grade, says KBB.


For those headed back to school, the 2015 Nissan Versa Note is a great choice, says Kelley Blue Book. In its annual "10 Best Back to School Cars of 2015" list, KBB named the Versa Note as a top choice. The Note also made its "10 Tech-savviest Cars Under $20,000" list and last year's "10 Coolest Cars Under $18,000" list. So the Nissan Versa Note is no stranger to KBB and their popular car lists.

The vehicles selected for this year's "Back-to-School" recommendation had to be available for around $20,000 or less and meet the editors' criteria of being "practical, functional, safe and affordable" – as well as "something fun and stylish." The 2015 Versa Note has a starting Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price* (M.S.R.P.) of $14,180 USD, making it the lowest priced vehicle on the list.

"We are honored that Kelley Blue Book has recognized the Versa Note as one of its Best Back-to-School Cars of 2015," said Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Sales & Marketing and Operations, U.S.A., Nissan North America, Inc. "Versa Note has a great combination of an affordable starting price, excellent fuel economy and long list of available safety and security features, combined with a sporty style and one of the roomiest interiors in the segment."

The 2015 Nissan Versa Note comes in five models (S, S Plus, SV, SR, and SL), a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, a 5-speed manual or continuously variable transmission (CVT) and up to 40 miles per gallon on the highway. Bluetooth hands-free is standard on all Versa Note models.
