Nissan Note remains a car for ordinary users. It is affordable and full of smart solutions.
Remember the Nissan Note? A city car balancing between a hatchback and a small van, similar to the Yaris Verso? While it has long since given way to crossovers in Europe, in Japan it still runs as a traditional hatchback in its third generation. It was introduced in 2020 and is now enjoying a state-of-the-art upgrade.
Some would argue that the bodywork looks at least ten years older, but that doesn’t matter at all because it’s aimed at a conservative clientele. But she also has room for fantasy. The Note is available in fourteen shades and offers two-tone paintwork. The modernization brings new bumpers, mask filler in the color of the car and aesthetic covers of 16-inch steel wheels.
The interior goes hand-in-hand with the times through a digital instrument panel and a fairly large infotainment touchscreen with navigation. The air conditioner retains the classic analog controls. An interesting feature is the swiveling passenger seat for easy entry and it also offers an extendable footrest.
The car is powered by a cleverly conceived hybrid, the basis of which is a 12-litre petrol engine that generates energy for the battery. The wheels are driven by an electric motor, and you can choose between a front-wheel drive and a quad bike with a second electric motor on the rear axle. The Note is a simple and affordable car. The basic model costs CZK 362,000 and the four-wheel drive version costs about CZK 405,000.
