Nissan Note: Now More Relevant than Ever
If you’re a Ford Fiesta or Volkswagen Polo fan, then the Nissan Note is going to be just for you. It’s absolutely huge for such a small car, it’s easy and comfortable to drive, and won’t cost an arm or a leg to run.
Inside the Note is deceptively large – offering enough room for a family of five and a generous amount of headroom, and even with the front seats pushed right back, there is still a decent offering of legroom in the passenger seats (admittedly, at 6’6 I struggled a little bit).
Inside space is where the Note really comes into its own, offering a generous 325 litres of space at the smallest configuration (35 more than a Fiesta) going all the way up to 1465 litres with the rear seats folded down. The glovebox has plenty of space, and there’s a fair few extra little spaces dotted around the cabin.
The Note’s compact size and light controlling make it perfect for city and town driving, and has been fine tuned for European roads – with significant improvements in handling on previous models. Suspension is stable, and won’t give you any nasty surprises when going over potholes at speed.
The Note is extremely economical to run: all engines are equipped with Stop/Start technology; both the 1.2 DIG-S and 1.5 dCi engines emit less than 100g/km of CO2 – meaning you won’t pay road tax; and the Note runs at up to an excellent 80.7 mpg.
The Note might not offer the same cool appeal that the Fiesta does, but delivers above and beyond in practicality, being eco-friendly and in running costs. It’s also absurdly cheap too: we’re currently offering an Acenta on a 3 year lease with a full maintenance package and no upfront payment for £118.88 (+ VAT).
