In an effort to expand the 2015 Versa Note model's appeal, Nissan announced two new trim levels for its small, entry-level 5-door hatchback. Starting next year, the 2015 Nissan Versa Note will be available in sporty SR and more luxurious SL trim levels, complementing existing S, S Plus, and SV trim levels. Additionally, Nissan is adding Bluetooth connectivity and steering wheel controls as standard equipment on all 2015 Versa Note models.
The new 2015 Versa Note SR model builds on the Versa Note SV by adding revised front styling with darkened headlights, fog lights, and unique black and chrome trim. Design changes also include lower body side skirts, new side mirrors with integrated turn signal indicators, a rear spoiler, and machined-finish 16-inch aluminum wheels with dark-painted pockets and 195/55 tires. Inside, the Versa Note SR's steering wheel is 370Z-inspired, according to Nissan. The seats feature suede-like upholstery with orange accents, and the driver faces a dashboard trimmed in piano black with chrome and silver accents, as well as Fine Vision triple-dial instrumentation.
An SR Convenience package is available for this car, installing a NissanConnect touch-screen infotainment display with a reversing camera, Bluetooth streaming audio capability, text-messaging capability, USB port, and satellite radio. This package also supplies the automaker's NissanConnect Apps technology, providing access to Facebook, Twitter, Pandora, and more, right from the car's dashboard display screen.
Switching gears to the new 2015 Versa Note SL, this trim package essentially replaces the SL package previously offered for the Versa Note SV. It includes 16-inch aluminum wheels, fog lights, variable windshield wipers, a Divide-N-Hide cargo storage system, and an Easy Fill Tire Alert system that makes it easy to maintain proper tire pressure. Nissan Intelligent Key with push-button starting is also standard for the new Versa Note SL, along with heated front seats, NissanConnect, and NissanConnect Apps.
Nissan says that the new 2015 Versa Note will go on sale in spring of 2014.
