New Nissan Note


Nissan unveiled the new Note as their new global compact car, and it’s based on the Invitation concept revealed at the Geneva Auto Show last year.

With a goal of becoming the most user-friendly car in its segment, the new Note will explore the full potential of compact cars when it goes on sale in Japan this fall.  The Note achieves class-leading fuel efficiency and emission levels, combining advanced engine technology, a lightweight platform and improved aerodynamics. The new hatchback includes Nissan’s advanced Around View Monitor (AVM) which is included for the first time in a compact car, helping to take the stress out of reversing and parallel parking in tight spaces.

So it has good features, good practicality, and because it’s a Nissan good engine and god value as well. But we are most fond of the way this car looks. It is utterly magnificent for a B-segment car, especially one that is slated for the global market and has to be conservative.

Details of the Note:

The Note’s eye-catching exterior features a striking character line, known as the ‘Squash Line’, and an aerodynamic body shape while its distinctive front grille, headlamps and rear combination lamps combine to create a sense of dynamism and sophistication.

The revamped body structure enabled the Note’s designers to deliver a spacious interior that is beyond expectations for a car in this class. An expansive and inviting cabin includes a flowing line above the instrument panel, which inspired by ripples in sand, helps express the Note’s practicality and modernity as well as contributing to its high-quality interior.

Two new engines will be available to customers in Japan, including the new supercharged HR12DDR (DIG-S) and the HR12DE, which has received acclaim in the Nissan March.

Combining the compact, lightweight next-generation XTRONIC CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) for all grades with an Idling Stop System for 2WD, the newly-developed three-cylinder supercharged, direct injection DIG-S engine provides an enjoyable driving experience and excellent fuel efficiency, achieving class-leading*1economy of 25.2 km/L (on JC08 mode)*2.

A global success since its launch in 2005, Nissan has sold 940,000 units of the current Note.

The new Japanese-market Note will be manufactured at Nissan Motor Kyushu. Nissan’s Sunderland plant in the U.K. will produce models for Europe, which are planned for release in 2013.
