In a class that consists largely of vehicular tortoises, the Nissan Versa Note still ranks among the slowest. Although regular drivers will rarely floor the gas pedal and race away from stoplights, the Nissan will prove its sluggishness during attempts to merge or pass on the highway.

Every Versa Note is front-wheel drive and features a 109-hp four-cylinder engine that pairs with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Unfortunately, the CVT often elicits continuous noise during hard acceleration. This combined with the Versa Note's underpowered engine make for a lethargic and unrefined experience. Still, the hatchback's powertrain has sufficient push around town and will go unnoticed-unless you're in a hurry.
