For three years running, the Nissan Versa Note has earned a spot on Kelley Blue Book’s (KBB) “10 Best Back-to-School Cars” list.

According to Nissan, the editors of KBB.com appreciated that the “The Versa Note subcompact hatchback combines surprising roominess and versatility with appealing options and the lowest starting price of any vehicle on this list.”

KBB’s requirements for its “Best Back-to-School Cars” list for 2017 included vehicles that had to be “available for a Kelley Blue Book® Fair Purchase Price of less than $20,000 and meet the editors’ criteria of being safe and stylish.”

“Versa Note, as the KBB.com editors write, is a car that parents and students can agree on,” said Scott Shirley, vice president, Nissan Chief Marketing Manager & Marketing Operations, Nissan North America, Inc. “Versa Note continues to offer a great combination of available safety and security features, combined with the sporty style and roomy, versatile interior that is perfect for the demands of life on campus and off.”
