DETROIT, Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Nissan today presented two important all-new vehicles during a press conference at the 2013 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS).

The sleekly styled Versa Note shared the stage with the dramatic Nissan Resonance, a design concept previewing the direction of future Nissan crossovers. The Resonance concept is being shown for the time anywhere at NAIAS, which runs from Jan. 19 th through the 27 th at Detroit's Cobo Center. Nissan is also debuting an all-new multi-level exhibit stand at the show, featuring an amphitheater-style stage and cantilevered electronic "halo" surrounding the display space.

Said Nissan Division Vice President and General Manager Al Castignetti: "Our three all-new vehicles launched in the past six months – Altima, Sentra and Pathfinder – helped propel the Nissan Division to its best year ever with sales of more than one-million vehicles. We're keeping the excitement going with this great-looking Versa Note and its unexpected and affordable technology, which should help Versa retain its title as the top-selling nameplate in the entry-level segment*."

The list of advanced features offered on the roomy, 5-passenger 2014 Versa Note includes a segment-first** Around View ® Monitor, NissanConnect SM with Navigation System with Hands-Free Text Messaging Assistant and Active Grille Shutter – which helps it deliver expected 40 miles per gallon highway fuel economy with the CVT transmission. A starting Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP)*** of $13,990 USD for the new Versa Note was announced today, joining the 2013 Versa Sedan's $11,990 USD starting MSRP***.

Nissan Executive Vice President Andy Palmer had the honor of unveiling the Resonance Concept, stating: "The Resonance concept leads Nissan into a new 'innovation era' of smart design and smart technology, ensuring that Nissan will continue its global crossover design leadership for many years to come."

The Resonance concept was created at Nissan Design America in San Diego, CA and features an open, airy architecture highlighted by a unique "floating" roof created through the use of the thin, steeply raked A-pillars, large full-length glass panel and flowing D-pillar design. Inside, the designers imagined what the future of first-class space travel might be: Welcoming yet exclusive and high-tech yet premium. The resulting "VIP lounge," with its light, buttery leather and premium-stitched seats, exudes genuine sophistication.

The all-wheel drive Resonance concept also features an efficient hybrid electric drivetrain that includes Nissan's proprietary "one-motor, two-clutch" system, which combines a smaller displacement internal combustion gasoline engine with an electric motor/lithium-ion battery and advanced management system.
