Nissan Note 2013 release date and price revealed

The new Nissan Note is available to order now, and prices start from £11,900

Prices for new Nissan Note have been announced, with the entry-level Visia model available now from £11,900.

The Note gets 15-inch steel wheels, central locking, cruise control and front electric windows as standard, with air-conditioning, alloy wheels and Bluetooth coming on the Acenta specification.

The Acenta Premium specification will cost from £14,150, and includes sat-nav, climate control, an optional 360-degree camera for easier parking and securing the car.

Top-spec Tekna specification models cost from £15,950 and comes with the camera system as standard as well as leather seats, keyless starting, automatic air-conditioning, lane-departure warning and a moving object detector that warns if a person walks into the path of the car while it's reversing.

The new Note is the same size as the outgoing model, albeit with a slightly lower roof. However, boot space increases from 280 to 300 litres.

It’s based on a bigger version of the Nissan Micra, and features a choice of three engines. The first is a 79bhp 1.2-litre petrol that will return 60.1mpg economy and produce 109g/km in emissions. This engine is the only one available with an automatic gearbox.

There's also a supercharged version of the same engine with 97bhp, fuel economy of 65.7mpg and 99g/km of CO2 emissions. The sole diesel is a 1.5-litre engine that emits 95g/km of CO2 and returns 78.5mpg.

The Note used to be a rival for supermini MPVs like the Honda Jazz, but Nissan claims the new model will be more of a challenger for hatchbacks like the Ford Fiesta and Volkswagen Polo.

That means the new Note gets a smoother, softer look than its predecessor. It has a distinctive front grille that intersects with the swept-back headlights, while the tail-lights are more upright versions of those on the Nissan Juke.

The new Nissan Note is built in the company’s factory in Sunderland, England, and is available to order now. Deliveries start in October, although cars orders with the 1.2-litre petrol engine won’t be delivered until January 2014.
