Nissan Going to Make Waves at 2016 LA Auto Show

Ahead of the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show, Nissan seems to complete its lineup. The most ever affordable manufacturer’s hatch, the Versa Note, will meet the next model year with a restyled look. Basically changes affect the exterior only; in terms of the powertrain, the Versa remains unchanged. Several new paint colors along with a new front and rear fascia seem to be the most radical alterations affecting the model. Add new headlights, a modified lower grille, a sportier rear spoiler and some additional updated equipment stuff at its heart and the changes list is complete now. Considering the reasonable pricing tag (the base price starts at $15,095), the Versa Note will definitely be regarded as one of the most affordable five-door hatches at the automotive market.

On top of that, Nissan is set to unveil the limited edition package under the name Black Pearls Edition. The manufacturer will offer only 1,000 units (250 have been reserved for Canadian customers). The special Juke badge features a standard 1.6-litre turbo engine, a unique black paint wrapping with white-accented bumpers and mirrors. Inside the car, the classical color set remains unchanged, with black upholstery seats, a white console and stitched accents. The SV-trim package will cost $1,190.
