Black Edition spruces up the exterior and interior of the standard Nissan Note with glossy black trim inside and out as standard

The Nissan Note Black Edition is now on sale in the UK priced from £14,415.

That's £3420 more than the entry level model, but the Black Edition gains styling flourishes and additional extras.

As standard the car's door mirrors, door handles and pillars are finished in black gloss. The Black Edition also gets a black finish on the car’s boot spoiler, and 16in black-finished alloy wheels too.

Interior upgrades are, as you might expect, gloss black trim pieces on the dashboard and gear stick, door handles, and a black headliner.

Nissan has also added electric rear windows to the Note Black Edition, although Nissan’s NissanConnect system remains an optional extra. The Black Edition is based on the mid-range Acenta trim, and so shares its standard equipment level with the latter.

It’s available with the same two engines offered in the Note: the 1.2-litre DiG-S petrol and 1.5 dCi diesel unit, both in two states of tune. The punchier of the two petrol engines is also available with a CVT transmission.

The sporty appearance of the car is as far as it goes, though; there are no mechanical upgrades on the limited edition Note, and Nissan still insists that the Note Nismo will not be coming to countries outside of its native Japanese market.

Sources suggest that the Black Edition will be a Europe-only special.

Out of touch?

Sorry Nissan, I don't mean to sound rude but have you examined the ownership profile of the Nissan Note? I don't imagine that pensioner motorists and the odd young mum are exactly calling out for a black edition with meaningless styling add ons. How about you redesign the car into what they do want, and have found elsewhere since your repositioning of the Note as a supermini rather than a mini MPV, i.e raised driving position, easy access etc.

Oh but these are exactly the

Oh but these are exactly the people this car is aimed at, a pseudo sporting edition to make them feel like they are special, even though clearly this car is not. It's all about marketing.


The shame of it is the last Note, despite its average demographic, was actually a cracking little car which really was fun to punt along.

Nissan Note

Normally bought by an old duffer that drives along at 45mph everywhere, through villages, along motorways, & dual carriageways.

The Black Edition... dear me.

The Black Edition... dear me. How lazy has product marketing become that every single car manufacturer has to have one, volume or prestige. They don't seem to be fussy.
