Open the wine, shoot-off a party popper, and celebrate – the Nissan Note has been upgraded for 2012.
Open the wine, shoot-off a party popper, and celebrate – the Nissan Note has been upgraded for 2012. So, for starters, the Acenta trim now has a higher specification. Enhancements include: automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers, climate control, and new seat fabric for a sophisticated feel. That has to be worth a sip of chardonnay. These features complement the Acenta's wheels, which are now sixteen-inch two-tone diamond cut rather than fifteen inches. Is that worth another gulp of the good stuff? Body coloured mirrors and fog light surrounds complete the look. It certainly feels noticeably higher class.Now, forget the wine – reach for the champaign. The Nissan Note is now available in top-of-the-range N-TEC+ form. This benefits from parking sensors, rear privacy glass, and touch-screen 'Connect' satellite navigation. Very nice too. The Connect package also includes the: CD/radio, iPod gateway, Aux-in, USB connection, and Bluetooth. Is this machine a compact multi-purpose vehicle or a top-spec saloon? Either way, it has composed handling, Nissan's masterful build quality, and – with the rear seats folded flat - a spacious 1,332-litre boot. Note prices start at £11,200. You could pay that for posh wine.
