2015 Nissan Versa Note Easily Makes KBB’s 10 Best Back-To-School Cars List

There are certain qualities college students need in a vehicle. The most important is fuel efficiency. Beyond that, you need a good amount of interior space, lots of great tech features and a certain “cool” factor to make all other kids on your dorm floor jealous.

The 2015 Nissan Versa Note meets every one of these requirements. That’s no doubt why this compact car from Nissan made Kelley Blue Book’s 10 Best Back-To-School Cars.

Technically, to make the list a car must be $20,000 or less. KBB also demands a recipient be “practical, functional, safe and affordable,” not to mention, “fun and stylish.”

All in all, the 2015 Nissan Versa Note features 112.9 cubic feet of interior volume—plenty of room for textbooks. The Note seats five passengers, while also offering an attractive fuel economy of 40 mpg/highway. Bluetooth Hands-free Phone System is standard as are heated front seats.

This isn’t the only award the 2015 Nissan Versa Note has picked up. It also made the 10 Tech-Savviest Cars Under $20,000 for 2015 and 10 Coolest Cars Under $18,000 last year.

Nissan Versa Wins Top Safety Award from IIHS

With fuel economy a bigger concern than ever, auto makers are investing more and more into minicars with great fuel efficiency. How safe are these new minicars? Which ones are among these safest? These are a few questions you may be asking yourself. Recently, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) released their annual list of Top Safety Picks and the Nissan Versa tops the list as one of the safest minicars on the road today.

The IIHS ranks vehicles into four categories: Good, Acceptable, marginal and poor. The vehicle is placed into each of these categories based on five test categories composed of moderate overlap frontal crash, small overlap frontal crash, side impact, rollover and rear impact. There were only six mini vehicles to top the IIHS Top Safety Picks list of 2013/2014 and the Nissan Versa is one of those small cars.
