^ You can only get a new "Versa Note" (the hatchback) in Canada. They dropped the Versa sedan around the same time they put the Micra in the Canadian line up.
And you're not mistaken: there's a TON of rear legroom in the back of the Note.
Versa Note S (bottom trim level) is currently $15,888
I think the biggest reason sales have tanked has to do with cutting back fleet sales. It may also explain why Chevy Spark sales have taken off this year.
