History of Nissan Note
Nissan first launched the Note in 2004 as a mini MPV to add to their lineup. Now in its second generation, the Note has been a successful model for the Japanese carmaker, although it sits within a competitive market against vehicles like the Ford Fiesta and Volkswagen Polo. The Note is designed to be spacious and versatile, with wide opening doors, increased headroom and a very spacious boot for what is essentially a small car. The Note was a successful move for the Japanese carmaker, with reviewers praising its spacious interior and great practicality, particularly for small families. The punchy yet economical engines help keep the Note cheap to run, although some feel that refinement on the car is below average in what is a competitive market sector.
First Generation Nissan Note (2004 - 2013)
The first Note concept vehicle was shown at the Paris Motor Show 2004. It was a five-door hatchback with aspects taken from the larger Qashqai and Murano models. The European production model was then unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show 2005, and the Geneva Motor Show in 2006.
European production of the Nissan Note began in January 2006 at Nissan''s plant in Sunderland, UK, before retail models went on sale in spring of the same year. The UK was the first market to receive the Note. At launch the Note shared some components with the Renault Modus, with Nissan intending for it to compete with the Vauxhall Meriva and Citroen Picasso. At the plant in England the Note was an indirect successor to the Almera hatchback model, which ceased production at the same plant in late 2006. In Europe the Almera was replaced with the Tiida, although this was not officially imported within the UK.
Soon after launch buyers were given a choice of four engines, including a 1.4L petrol and a 1.5L diesel. Initially it was available in three specifications: S, SE and SVE, but for the UK markets trim levels were called Visia, Visia+, Acenta, Acenta S, and Tekna.
The Note models were well equipped, all coming with four airbags as standard. A CD player, remote central locking, electric front windows and door mirrors and a sliding rear seat were also included across the range.
The Note was awarded a four-star rating during Euro NCAP safety testing in 2006. By July 2012, Nissan is said to have sold 940,000 Nissan Note vehicles.
Second Generation Nissan Note (2012 - Present)
The second gen Nissan Note was based around the INVITATION concept, which was a hatchback built on the V-platform which Nissan intended to sell alongside the Micra and the Juke. It boasted independent front MacPherson struts with Around View Monitor safety tech and the Nissan Safety Shield System. The Japanese carmaker first unveiled the European Mk2 production model at the 83rd Geneva Motor Show, with models hitting the European market by the summer of 2013.
Early models of the Mk2 range gave buyers three engine choices, with the option of manual or CVT transmission. Visia, Acenta, Acenta Premium and Tekna trim levels were now available. The latest Note has been praised for its spacious rear seats and large boot space, with a range of efficient yet punchy engines, including a 1.2 L supercharged engine with impressively low CO2 emissions.
Auto Express say that reliability is not as good as many have come to expect from Japanese manufacturers, with the Note voted the 143rd best car to live with, a feat the magazine call "nothing to write home about".
