There are five trim levels are offered: Acenta, Acenta Limited Edition, Acenta Black Edition, Acenta Premium and Tekna. Entry-level Acenta trims include Bluetooth, a CD radio, cruise control, a trip computer, electric front windows, air conditioning, USB connectivity and alloys wheels. Opt for the Acenta Limited Edition and you get some bespoke Note decal floor mats, while the Black Edition comes with a 5.8in Nissan Connect touchscreen infotainment system complete with sat nav and numerous black exterior and interior details.
The mid-range Acenta Premium trims come with a sliding rear bench, climate control, auto headlights and wipers, and front fog lights, while the range-topping Tekna models get 16in alloys, a part leather interior, keyless entry and start, and a 360-degree camera.
The Nissan Note’s driving position is a bit more raised than the typical small car’s and a little more bent-legged. But otherwise, from the front seats at least, this feels like a pretty ordinary supermini, which should be construed as both a good and a bad thing.
Nissan's seats are comfortable and the controls well placed, but it’s high time that Nissan joined the rest of the car-making world in fitting telescoping steering columns to its small cars.
The glossy black centre stack and funky circular climate control console are appealing enough, but they look like a vague nod in the direction of added style rather than a decisive commitment to it.
