    Thank you for all the details! Any idea what the difference in Cd comes from - Cd: S 5MT = 0.308, S Plus Cvt and SV = 0.298 ? Are the wheels smoother or have smaller holes?

    Is the floor flat when the rear seats are folded down? What are the differences in dimensions between the Note and the Honda Fit?

    The difference in Cd comes mostly from the active grill shutter, probably.

    The floor is supposed to be flat with rear seats folded if the optional two-position cargo floor at its upper position, I think.

    The excesssive engine revs with the manual is disappointing. Somewhere about mid-way between what it is and the CVT would be reasonable. As usual, that's aimed at keeping people too lazy (or too ignorant) to downshift from complaining they can't pass safely on an uphill.

    Hi Neil and RedylC94:

    Here are two pics of the hatch area with the rear seats folded down with the second holding some beach stuff as we were at a “Make your surfboard yourself” place for the first stop of the short lead drive last week.

    It is not flat but it is not bad either.

    Regarding the Cd, it is the shutter and more under body panel work on the Plus on up IIRC.

    With the Versa Note CVT models , Nissan have managed to out-Fit the Fit. Honda should be paying attention to this car !

    I'm convinced that this is part of a big conspiracy to sell MT's to the foolish while forcing the "wise" to pay more for a less durable (but perhaps more profitable) transmission.

    Nissan is certainly not the only manufacturer guilty of this.

    Thank you for the further information - I didn't realize that it had an active cooling intake. Is there a picture of the underside with the belly pan?

    I think the reason they do such crappy gearing on the manual is (in case?) you get cruise control? I drive a Scion xA which is similarly hobbled - ~3,500RPM at ~65MPH is just terrible. It could be ~2,000-2,200 at 65RPM and be totally fine. On flat ground, I can use 5th gear at 35-38MPH or so.

    Back on topic of the Note: I really hope that Nissan builds a Note EV! I think they need to improve the Cd of the Leaf as well get it down to <0.24 and good things will happen.

    Hi Neil:

    I did not take a pic of the underside but here is the pictorial from the short lead handout.

    Wayne , is it only certain models that get the Active Grille Shutter and other aero tweaks ?

    For some crazy reason . I am really liking this car. Almost enough to buy a CVT-equipped car.

    Hi Edwin:

    The S Plus on up with the CVT has the shutters.

    I would not get to hyped up about the 2014 Versa Note as it has some pretty large shortcomings I will post about in a First Drive review possibly tomorrow.

    Hi Wayne,

    Yep lets begin with the model up charge for Blue Tooth and the USB port as a start.
    They should be both included in the S-Plus package. There is no way I'm paying $3,700 up charge for the USB port let alone $2,000 more for the Blue tooth.

    Hi Al:

    My early conclusion will wrap that up along with the extremely poor ergonomics and low rent interior appointments.

  13. NeilBlanchard

    NeilBlanchard Well-Known Member

    Thanks for the image of the underside - they have a few small teaks, but deflectors are quick fixes. A full smooth belly pan would be far better. And true wheel strakes would be better than deflectors.

    One thing I would like to get picky about is the fold down rear seats. Why doesn't everyone have fold flat rear sears like the Matrix? Also the gearing on the 5MT has got to be just right, I agree big time on that one. Continue to refine the CVT. I guess Suburu is the leader on that one. Durability must be there for me to even consider CVT. Thank you for providing us the details, xcel.
