Nissan Versa Note named one of “10 Best Cars for Recent College Graduates” by Autotrader

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The 2015 Nissan Versa Note has been named to Autotrader’s list of “10 Best Cars for Recent College Graduates.” The list of new and pre-owned vehicles selected by Autotrader editors was chosen not only for their affordability and fuel efficiency but also for “desirable technology features and stylistic appeal.”

The popular Versa Note was introduced for the 2014 model year and added a new sports model, the Versa Note SR, for 2015. It offers 40 miles-per-gallon highway fuel economy (Xtronic transmission-equipped models) and a starting Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Prices (MSRP)* of $14,180 USD.

“The Nissan Versa Note is the ideal vehicle for tech-savvy college graduates who need the versatility and cargo utility for their active lifestyles, yet is also easy to park and won’t break the budget with every fill up,” said Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Sales & Marketing, Parts & Service, U.S.A, Nissan North America, Inc.

“Any time someone goes through a major life change, such as graduating college, they need to determine if their current ride makes sense for their lifestyle, from both a financial and functional perspective,” said Brian Moody, site editor for Autotrader. “For example, while that hand-me-down SUV from your parents was nice when you turned 16, you may want to opt for a safer, more fuel-efficient car as you transition into the working world.”
