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.

2015 Nissan Note N-TEC

2015 Nissan Note N-TEC

Nissan launched the Note mini MPV back in 2004 and redesigned it in 2012. The second-gen car arrived in the U.S. for the 2014 model year — as a replacement for the Nissan Versa hatchback — with a 109-horsepower, 1.6-liter four-banger under the hood. In Europe, on the other hand, the Note received a drivetrain lineup that included two 1.2-liter gasoline units and a 1.5-liter diesel. Setting the Euro-spec model further apart is the number of special-edition models it spawned, the most recent of which is the UK-exclusive N-TEC.

Much like most limited-edition Japanese cars available in Britain, the N-TEC package essentially takes a well-equipped trim and adds a host of otherwise optional features as standard, alongside a couple of unique amenities. The end result is a new trim that comes with range-topping features and a relatively affordable sticker. Keep reading to find out what the Note N-TEC is all about.

Nissan Developing Self-Cleaning Paint

Nissan Developing Self-Cleaning Paint

Like most Japanese automakers, Nissan has come up with an array of technologies that aim to improve the automobiles in its lineup. The GT-R’s advanced powertrain and chassis, the Leaf EV and its upcoming autonomous vehicle come to mind.

While the self-driving Nissan is still at least five years away and will probably arrive alongside similar vehicles from Toyota or Ford, the company has just announced a brand-new technology that might become available on production cars in the future.

This time we’re not talking about a revolutionary engine or a vehicle that runs on alternative fuels, but an innovative paint technology that repels the mud, rain and the dirt automobiles are subjected to each and every day. In short, Nissan claims it has created a self-cleaning car with help from a super-hydrophobic and oleophobic paint.

Dubbed Ultra-Every Dry, the innovation consists of a special coating that creates "a protective layer of air" between the paint and the environment that stops water and dirt from leaving marks on the car’s body. To demonstrate the technology, Nissan used an Euro-spec Note model that had one side coated with the said paint, while the other remained as it came from the factory.

The result is pretty impressive, but it won’t run car washes out of business just yet. The product is still in its testing phase and Nissan says there are currently no plan for the technology to be offered to the public. However, the feature could become available as a "future aftermarket option" at a date that has yet to be unveiled.
