Nissan Note gets popular n-tec family trim
Good-value n-tec equipment specification adds yet more appeal to the British-made family favourite
The Nissan Note can now be ordered in n-tec trim, a good-value spec aimed at family buyers that incorporates sophisticated safety features and distinctive design tweaks.
The n-tec trim is a cheaper alternative to Nissan's range-topping Tekna trim. The on-the-road price for a Note in n-tec trim is £15,365 – only about a grand more than the mid-range Acenta Premium. The decision to offer this trim in the Note follows its introduction to the X-Trail, Qashqai and Pulsar ranges.
Nissan Note Safety Shield
Nissan’s Safety Shield technology package is now standard on the n-tec. This includes blind-spot and lane-departure warnings that can help your family stay safe on the road.
External styling enhancements include 16-inch alloy wheels, silver door handles and detailing, as well as the choice of an exclusive n-tec metallic blue colour. There’s also a more aerodynamic front bumper, black headlight surrounds and tinted windows at the back.
The interior of the n-tec Note also boasts some nice gadgets, such as DAB digital radio and Bluetooth audio streaming.
Nissan Note MPV
The Nissan Note (click here to see our video review on YouTube) competes with several very good and very popular cars in the mini-MPV class. The Renault Grand Scenic and Renault Scenic are both big sellers, as well as being some of the most highly rated of their kind. Several Fiat 500 derivatives now challenge the Note, and the BMW 2 Series MPV is a posh alternative.
The Note is a roomy family car with lots of luggage space and some very efficient engines to choose from. Owners tell us that it's a pleasure to own overall and Nissan is a reputable manufacturer with a strong presence in the UK. The Note is in fact British-made – the model is produced alongside the Juke, Qashqai and all-electric Leaf at the company’s Sunderland plant.
