Nissan has announced the first details on the new generation Note - a new global compact car which made its world premiere at the Osanbashi venue in Yokohama. The new model will go on sale in Fall 2012 and aims to become the most user-friendly car in its segment.
When compared to the previous generation, the new Note has adopted a new striking character line - known as the ’Squash Line’ - and an aerodynamic body shape identified thanks to its distinctive front grille, headlamps, and rear combination lamps.
The new Note was built on a lightweight platform and is offered with a choice of two new engines, including the new supercharged HR12DDR (DIG-S) and the HR12DE. The model has also received the next-generation XTRONIC CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) combined with a start-stop system for the new three-cylinder supercharged, direct injection DIG-S engine. With these improvements, the new Note delivers an impressive fuel economy of 25.2 km/L.
Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. today announced that the new Note compact car will go on sale at dealers throughout Japan beginning on January 16. Since the original Note’s debut in January 2005, it has garnered customer accolades for its quick acceleration, quiet and comfortable driving manner, comfortable roomy interior and convenient double-decker multi-configurable trunk.
From 1 September 2007 NISSAN will introduce an alternative styling choice to the award winning NOTE range known as the ACENTA R with an on the road price starting from £11840. Before you run home to dust off your racing boots the R stands for Red to acknowledge the unique black on red detailing in the upholstery for the seats and door pockets, plus an exterior colour designed to get your heart pounding called Emotion Red. If Red is not your favourite paint colour then it can also be selected in a pearl Black metallic.
Combining the interior space of an executive saloon with the agility of a conventional small hatchback, Nissan’s unconventional NOTE is designed to appeal to the head and the heart.
