Back in July, Nissan unveiled the Invitation Concept, a vehicle designed for the B-segment and announced that it will build the car at the Sunderland plant in the U.K. Today, the production version of the Invitation Concept was unveiled: this is the all-new Nissan Note. Set to go on sale in Japan this fall and in Europe in early 2013, the new Nissan Note promises to become the most user-friendly car in its segment.
Furthermore, the Note comes with Nissan’s advanced Around View Monitor (AVM) which is a premiere for a compact car from the Japanese manufacturer. In terms of design, the Nissan Note features a striking character line, known as the ‘Squash Line', as well as a distinctive front grille, headlamps and rear combination lamps.
As expected, the vehicle features a spacious interior and according to Nissan, this is beyond expectations for a car in this class. Some of the highlights, include the flowing line above the instrument panel.
Under the hood we find two new engines: the supercharged HR12DDR (DIG-S) and the HR12DE. These engines are mated to the XTRONIC CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) and features Idling Stop System for 2WD.
