Take note of the Nissan Note.
Take note of the Nissan Note. Why? Because this compact multi-purpose vehicle is available via a personal contract plan. Terms for the ACENTA 1.4 manual trim include the £3,714 deposit followed by thirty-six monthly payments of £149. Throughout this period motorists have an annual mileage allowance of 10,000, with excesses charged at 6.0 pence per-mile. Take note... at the end of the contract there are three options. One, pay the £4,022 purchase fee to own the car. This equals a modest £13,100 including interest. Option two is to return it like blotchy notepaper. There should be nothing else to pay subject to mileage and condition. Option three is to part exchange it via a new contract. Pleasingly, if the Note is worth more than its purchase charge any difference contributes to the deposit.The Nissan Note has numerous strengths to make note of. The ACENTA 1.4 manual trim, for starters, is nicely equipped thanks to its cruise control, Bluetooth, MP3 playback, and an electronic stability programme. This makes cornering safer, particularly in slippery conditions. The Note also has space for five people plus a 280-litre boot that incorporates under-floor storage. Cargo capacity, in fact, can be increased to 1,332-litres by folding the rear bench flat. That is impressive considering the car's size. However, a little more power would be helpful – particularly for those who fill the boot with heavy notebooks. As such, this 88PS trim takes an unremarkable 13.4 seconds to hit 62mph. At least this easy to drive workhorse averages a fair 47.9mpg. Nice car overall, then - and well worth taking “note” of.
