An upgrade has been given to the Nissan Note supermini-MPV range for 2012. The British-built range will have a new luxury N-TEC+ grade as one of the major changes. Instead of 15in alloys, the mid-range Nissan Note Acenta will receive new two-tone 16in versions. It will also get chrome-effect door mirror covers and front fog light surrounds.
The interior gets a new seat fabric while climate control, automatic headlights and rain-sensitive wipers are all offered as standard.
The Nissan Note N-TEC+ and the Acenta trim have the same specifications but the N-TEC+ has rear parking sensors and the darkened rear privacy glass and the ‘Connect’ touch screen satnav/audio system that’s used on the existing N-TEC trim.
The engine line-up also includes the 1.4, 1.6 petrol and 1.5dCi power units. The engine with the highest fuel economy is the Pure Drive badged 1.5dCi. It emits 110g/km of CO2 and has a claimed combined economy of 67.3mpg.
The Nissan Note Visia has a starting price of £11,200. The Acenta is priced at £13,000 while the N-TEC+ is at £13,500. Delivery of the new Notes to dealers will start in early February.
