Nissan’s commitment to innovation, style and excitement has produced some of the most talked-about cars in recent years. And now, following in the tracks of the ground-breaking Qashqai and Juke, the new Note sets the standard for advanced, relevant technology in an affordable small car package.
The Note is now a true B-segment contender that will redefine customer expectations.
Fully utilising Nissan’s innovative approach to design and engineering, it builds on the strengths and values of its predecessor
Nissan’s advanced Around View Monitor (AVM) – an innovative system that takes the stress out of reversing and parallel parking. Using four separate cameras, the 5.8-inch dashboard mounted screen displays an image of the new Note from above. This helps the driver to visually confirm the car’s position in relation to the surrounding area – making manoeuvres significantly easier and safer.
Three engine options will be offered with CO2 outputs from as low as 95g/km. Nissan’s intelligent stop-start ignition system is fitted to all models, further boosting efficiency and minimising CO2 emissions.
Both new Note petrol engines displace 1,198cc and three-cylinder 12-valve units. The entry-level 1.2-litre produces power and torque figures of 80PS at 6,000 rpm and 110Nm at 4,000 rpm. This translates to combined fuel economy of 60.1mpg, while CO2 emissions are 109g/km.
Further up the range is the innovative 1.2-litre DIG-S engine that generates 98PS at 5,600 rpm and 142Nm of torque at 4,400 rpm. This advanced engine offers the economy of a traditional diesel, but delivers a driving experience normally associated with a mid-size, four-cylinder petrol engine. Among the many technical highlights of this engine is the supercharger. Equipped with an electronic clutch system, it can be disconnected from the engine while driving at low speeds – boosting economy and reducing any unnecessary friction within the engine.
Combined, these innovations make the 1.2-litre DIG-S one of the most efficient and flexible engines in the sector. Despite its strong performance, CO2 emissions are just 99g/km with the manual gearbox (119g/km with CVT transmission). Fuel consumption is 65.7mpg (with manual transmission) on the combined cycle.
Completing the Note engine range is a newly engineered four-cylinder 1.5-litre turbo diesel. This 90PS Renault-Nissan Alliance developed unit emits just 95g/km of CO2 and offers a combined fuel economy figure of 78.5mpg.
Performance figures for all engines will be announced closer to launch. Read Full Press Release
