The range of the British-built Nissan Note supermini-MPV is being upgraded for 2012, with a new luxury N-TEC+ grade one of the key changes.
The mid-range Nissan Note Acenta gets new two-tone 16in alloys in place of the previous 15in versions, as well as chrome-effect door mirror covers and front fog light surrounds. On the inside there’s a new seat fabric, while climate control, automatic headlights and rain-sensitive wipers all now come as standard.
The Nissan Note N-TEC+ has the same specification as the Acenta trim but adds rear parking sensors as well as the darkened rear privacy glass and the ‘Connect’ touch screen satnav/audio system found on the existing N-TEC trim.
The engine line-up continues with the 1.4, 1.6 petrol and 1.5dCi power units. The Pure Drive badged 1.5dCi is the most frugal and emits 110g/km of CO2 and a claimed combined economy of 67.3mpg.
Prices start at £11,200 for the Nissan Note Visia, with the Acenta level at £13,000 and N-TEC+ at £13,500. The first of the new Notes will reach dealers in early February.
