Nissan Versa Note test drive coming up.

I've just been told I will be driving a 2014 Versa Note next week.

I've been pretty curious about that car.
As the Versa sedan is, to me, one of the ugliest car around, I do like the Note.

I think it is much better looking than the upcoming redesigned Honda Fit. Which would be its main competition in the US.
With pricing ranging from around $15 000 to $20 000 loaded, it is also pretty affordable.
(I just wish they would offer the glass roof available in other markets)

As usual, if you have any questions about the car...

No questions for you but question for Nissan. Why does Canada get manual transmission across the board and US only gets it with crank windows? Also why did you cheapen the interior for the American market? Not that it matters, I'm sure this will sell 100k a year anyway.

Almost no one buys manuals in the US. Much less than in Canada, that's why they don't offer it except on the base model.

Power windows are standard on the $16 000 model.

The interior is better in Europe where the car is also more expensive.

Any possible way to do a TRUE highway mileage test with this vehicle. It's on my short list to buy, but I am concerned that REAL hwy mpg will not be close to what is advertised. I mean a steady 55-65mpg run that you fill/top-off to get an honest read. Thanks Vince, LOVE your blog!!!
