Nissan announces launch of all-new Nissan Note

Nissan today announced the launch of the all-new Nissan Note, which goes on sale September 3rd at Nissan dealers nationwide in Japan. Featuring an energetic exterior design and spacious interior, the new Note combines a newly developed 1.2L engine with an aerodynamic lightweight body, achieving top level fuel economy.

Spacious interior room is maximized by reducing mechanical space, and locating the accelerator pedal farther forward. Rear seat passengers have excellent field of vision through modification of the front seat back and ensuring largest-level knee room in its class. For easier ingress/egress and loading/unloading, the opening degree of rear doors is up to 85 degrees.

Nissan Note features Fine Vision Meter illumination with easy-to-read white-color graphics. Nissan Eco-meter with the blue outline of the upper side of the Fine Vision Meter and Eco-drive Indicator using high-intensity green LED – supporting the joy of eco-driving (standard on S DIG-S/X-DIG-S/MEADLIST)

Around View Monitor, offered for the first time in a compact car, displays an image of the vehicle from above, using four cameras installed in the front, both sides and rear. Since an image is projected on the auto anti-glare inside rear view mirror, a car navigation system is not required to use this feature.

In the highest grade, MEDALIST, provides a premium feel for both interior and exterior. The exterior features plated door handles and an exclusive Beatnic Gold body color that offers a higher quality appearance than typically found in its class. Inside, the premium feel continues, with suede-like cloth seats and artificial leather, piano-like center cluster finisher and genuine leather-wrapped steering wheel. The Around View Monitor is standard.

Standard on HR12DDR engine models, Nissan ECO-meter includes an ECO-drive Indicator that shows three eco-levels in on the upper part of the meter in green LED lighting. An Eco-pedal Guide displays accelerator angle on the center display. With the Eco-drive Report function, an eco-drive level is shown on the center display and Eco-drive Indicator. ECO-mode, which helps improve real-world fuel economy, is available in HR12DDR engine grades. When ECO-mode switch is on, the engine and CVT are controlled in a coordinated way to provide natural feeling yet fuel-efficient driving.

Note also provides outstanding comfort and user-friendliness and includes an advanced Around View Monitor, which is available for the first time in a compact car. Nissan Note is available in eight body colors, each of which has its own character, including the new Sonic Blue and Beatnic Gold (special color for MEDALIST).
