New Nissan Note for Europe Revealed [video]

Nissan has announced details for the new European spec Note ahead of its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in early March. New Note will be built at the Sunderland plant with unique design and engineering features for Europe.

The new Note is a true B-segment contender going against the likes of Ford Fiesta and Volkswagen Polo.

New Note gets Nissan’s new Safety Shield on the flagship Tekna trim – a package of technologies including Blind Spot Warning system, Lane Departure Warning and an advanced Moving Object Detection system. New Note is also the first car in the B-segment to offer Around View Monitor.

Three trim grades will be available – Visia, Acenta and Tekna. All cars come with stop-start systems, six airbags and cruise control.

Compared to the current car, the new Note has the same length, width and wheelbase, but is a bit lower, with boot space up from 280 to 300 litres.

From launch three engine choices will be available. a 79bhp 1.2-litre petrol that delivers 60.1mpg economy and 109g/km emissions, a supercharged version of the same engine produces 97bhp, with 65.7mpg and CO2 emissions of 99g/km. There is also a 89bhp 1.5-litre diesel with a combined fuel economy figure of 78.5mpg and 95g/km emissions.

Pricing details will be announced closer to market launch. First deliveries are scheduled for autumn 2013.
