KBB Names Nissan Versa Note to “10 Best Back-to-School Cars of 2017” List

It’s hard to believe, but summer is drawing to a close, and it’s time to send our children back to school. If you have a teen driver in high school or a college-aged commuter, you can rest easy shipping them off to class in the Nissan Versa Note, which was just named to Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com’s “10 Best Back-to-School Cars of 2017” list.

This is not the first time that the Versa Note has earned this honor. In fact, the 2017 list marks the third consecutive year that Nissan’s compact hatchback has earned this distinction. To earn a spot on KBB.com’s list, a vehicle must be below $20,000, must bestylish, and—above all else—must be safe.

Miniature Car Chases Can Still Have Full-Size Drama

2013 Nissan GT-REverybody loves a good car chase scene! They have everything; action, drama, suspense, awesome cars, and even exploding fruit stands. Any movie can be improved by adding a quality chase scene; even a lot of romance/comedies implement one of these just to make the (unwilling) male viewers happy for about a minute or two. But the problem is high-action chase scenes are inherently costly and dangerous. So how do directors practice without putting down a huge lump of money on cars, special effects, or shutting down roads and endangering stunt men? The answer lies with RC cars and the result is 1/10 scale cars with 100% action!

Watch as a Nissan GT-R stars in this miniature chase scene. Do you think it can escape the long arm of the law even with all those rogue fruit stands getting in the way?
