Today at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show Nissan unveiled its 2014 Nissan Versa Note, marking the second generation of the automaker’s hatchback.

Said Nissan Division Vice President and General Manager Al Castignetti: “Our three all-new vehicles launched in the past six months – Altima, Sentra and Pathfinder – helped propel the Nissan Division to its best year ever with sales of more than one-million vehicles. We’re keeping the excitement going with this great-looking Versa Note and its unexpected and affordable technology, which should help Versa retain its title as the top-selling nameplate in the entry-level segment.”
