The Nissan Note is a modern-looking, well-built small car that’s a little larger than a conventional supermini but the benefits of this come in the exceptional space efficiency and flexibility of its well planned interior. It’s a match for many larger family hatchbacks for passenger space and luggage space, making it a front-runner for those seeking maximum practicality for the money.
It has other attributes too, though. The engine range is small but all the motors are modern and very fuel efficient, while the DIG-S 98 petrol and dCi 90 diesel both pull well in combination with that excellent fuel economy.
Another Note positive is its high-tech infotainment system, which includes sat nave, clever apps and even internet radio. The fact it’s included in the list price of many models is a real bonus – and almost makes up for the Note’s slightly drab interior and cheap-feeling interior plastics.
