Nissan Note Stays Head and Shoulders Above any Comparable Model; Coming this Year

February 21, 2013, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Since the last 2 years, every car buyer has been thinking of the high tech features that a car can give them. To quench that technological thirst once and for all, the new Nissan Note is designed specifically for packing all the features it can and it can be undoubtedly called the most realistic sci-fi car as of now. So what makes this 80 hp (base model) car so advanced?

The tech options available in this car include a Blind Spot Warning system, Lane Departure Warning and an advanced Moving Object Detection system.

All the 3 systems operate using data from the rear wide view camera, which delivers a clear image no matter what the weather(owing to the in-built wash and blow dry function) is. There is an Around View Monitor (AVM) which gives the driver a multi-camera helicopter view to aid parking.


These systems are incorporated into the new Note’s enhanced Connect satellite navigation, Bluetooth and audio system. Now benefiting from a larger 5.8-inch touchscreen display, the latest system includes Google ‘Send to Car’ navigation software allowing routes planned at home to be transferred directly to the car. Additional connected services include Google Points of Interest (PoI), nearest fuel prices, plus flight and weather information.

There are options of 2 petrol engines and a diesel one. The entry level 1.2 liter petrol unit produces 80PS at 6,000 rpm and 110Nm at 4,000 rpm. There is a more powerful 1.2-litre engine, which outs 98PS at 5,600 rpm and 142Nm of torque at 4,400 rpm.


Fuel consumption is 65.7mpg on manual transmission. The diesel unit is the familiar four-cylinder 1.5-litre turbo diesel that outputs 90PS with emissions of 95g/km of CO2 and offers a combined fuel economy figure of 78.5mpg.

This car can pose a serious threat to other cars in the same segment and the upcoming Geneva Show is definitely going to be colorful with the new Nissan Note.
