Nissan Versa Note Nismo Turns the Compact Extreme

Nismo, which is an abbreviated form of Nissan Motorsport, is the performance division of Nissan. It is currently in charge of Nissan’s racing division, including the Super GT and FIA GT Championship. Nissan also uses Nismo to add a little spice to its lineup.

The most recent amped up car may surprise you as it is the smallest, most economical car in Nissan’s lineup. Say hello to the Nissan Versa Note Nismo. The 2014 Versa Note was already a cool car and Nissan has made it even cooler.

The Nissan Versa Note Nismo is no GT-R Nismo, but it will get branded with similar performance mods from the regular version.

Nissan will release Nismo and Nismo S trims of the compact five-door hatchback this fall in Japan. Unfortunately, it won’t be headed to our shores. The Versa Note Nismo will feature upgraded tires, sport seats or optional Recaros, an upgraded appearance and aerodynamic package, a more rigid body structure, and some sporty red accents throughout.

As far as what difference these changes will make in actual performance, Nissan hasn’t said.
