Fresh Nissan Versa Models Attract Record June Sales

Nissan Versa NoteWith an all-new Versa Note hatchback launching for the 2014 model year and a refreshed Versa Sedan debuting for 2015, the Nissan Versa lineup currently boasts a range of fresh features for attracting buyers, and that showed in last month’s sales results. Nissan moved 11,613 units of its Versa in June, a record for the month and a 33 percent year-over-year increase.

Together with a 68 percent year-over-year sales boost for the Nissan Sentra, the strong performance of the Versa lineup played a large role in elevating the overall Nissan brand to a best-ever June tally of 101,069 units sold. The 2014 Nissan Versa Note hatchback returns an impressive 40 mpg on the highway when equipped with its optional Xtronic continuously variable transmission (CVT), while offering a Divide-N-Hide system that provides a flat cargo floor and hidden storage space when the rear seat is folded down. Buyers can also opt for a breadth of in-car technologies, including an Around View Monitor and the Nissan Connect with Navigation infotainment system.

“Subcompact buyers tend to be younger drivers who want a fuel-efficient ride that is accompanied by intuitive technologies, and the new Versa Note is winning them over by going above and beyond what’s expected in the segment,” said Larry Tentarelli, general manager of AutoFair Nissan of Stratham, a New Hampshire Nissan dealer. “The same can be said for the Versa Sedan, which returns identical highway fuel economy to the Versa Note with the same Xtronic CVT and features a similar center-stack design for the 2015 model year.”

Newly standard features on the updated 2015 Nissan Versa Sedan include Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, steering wheel-mounted audio controls and white LED gauge-cluster lighting. Meanwhile, the base S and S Plus trims have added an enhanced audio system with an auxiliary input and a Radio Data System. Versa Sedan owners who purchase the SL Technology Package also now benefit from Nissan Connect with Navigation and Mobile Apps.

Honda Doubles Up on Honors from Parents Magazine and Edmunds.com

2014 Honda Accord Sedan

When it comes to seeking the most family-friendlyvehicle on the market, Parents magazine and Edmunds.com contend that there is no one-size-fits-all solution for buyers, but they did recently approve two very different Honda models for domestic duty. Both the 2014 Honda Accord midsize sedan and the 2014 Honda Odyssey minivan landed on the publications’ 10 Best Family Cars for 2014 list.

Dubbed one of the Best Sedans, the 2014 Accord was lauded by Parents and Edmunds.com editors for its spacious and sophisticated cabin that is outfitted with standard features like Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control and a rearview camera. Also noted were the sedan’s useful active-safety technology options, including Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning and the Honda LaneWatch passenger-side blind-spot camera. While the Accord frees up extra money for diapers and groceries by returning up to 36 mpg on the highway, Parents and Edmunds.com were just as impressed by the responsiveness of its base 185-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine.

“The key to choosing the right vehicle for your family is finding one that has all the functionality you need as a parent while still engaging you as a driver, and the Accord and Odyssey both accomplish that,” said Jason LaCroix, general manager of AutoFair Honda, a New Hampshire Honda dealer in Manchester. “They offer nimble, fuel-efficient rides while providing a range of modern features that will keep the entire family entertained and safe.”

Though a minivan may be an obvious choice for family transport, Parents and Edmunds.com named the up-to-eight-passenger Honda Odyssey their Best Minivan because it drives and conserves fuel like a much smaller vehicle. Netting up to 28 mpg on the highway, the Odyssey saves parents cash at the gas pump while featuring plenty of versatility, including a One-Motion 60/40 Split 3rd Row Magic Seat that can be fully stowed in the rear to create space for larger items like strollers. In addition to coming with Bluetooth connectivity and a rearview camera while offering the same available active-safety features found on the Accord, Honda’s minivan also boasts clever child-ready options like a built-in HondaVAC vacuum for cleaning up cereal crumbs and a cool box in the lower part of the center stack that can keep juice boxes chilled.
