Nissan Note DIG-S launched

Range-topping Nissan Note gets supercharged engine and optional styling pack

The new Nissan Note DIG-S has arrived in UK showrooms and becomes the top-of-the-range model in the Note range. Nissan claims the car combines the low running costs of the existing line-up with improved performance.

The car’s 1.2-litre petrol engine emits a road tax-beating 99g/km of CO2 and does up to 65.7mpg but has been engineered to perform like a larger engine with the use of a supercharger and special engine technology.

An optional style pack is available for £800, which adds special two-tone diamond cut versions of the standard 16-inch alloy wheels and a body kit, including a rear roof spoiler, black grille, side sills and new front and rear bumpers. The pack also includes black bezel headlights and an exclusive steering wheel design.

On top of changes to the engine, suspension and steering to improve the car’s performance, the DIG-S comes with Nissan’s stop/start system that improves economy by stopping the engine when the car is stationary.

The DIG-S is equipped with Nissan Safety Shield technology too, which monitors hazards using cameras and sensors. Drivers are warned of hazards in their blind spots, when they leave lanes and in other potentially dangerous situations.

The car is also available with ‘Around View Monitor’, which uses exterior cameras to give a 360-degree view of the space around the car - drivers can see this view on a screen on the dashboard and use it as an aid when making difficult manoeuvres.

Geraldine Ingham, Nissan Europe’s chief marketing manager, said: "Nissan Note has already made a real impression in Europe with strong sales in all markets. The arrival of the hugely effective DIG-S engine and the added design enhancements offered by the style pack will further cement its position as a genuine force in the B-segment."

The Nissan Note DIG-S starts at £14,495, around £1,000 more than the standard 1.2-litre petrol version, and is on sale now.
