All-New 2013 Nissan Note

Nissan’s competition should really be the ones taking Notes. The newly designed Nissan Note made its world debut at the Osanbashi venue in Yokohama, Japan. The previous Nissan Note resembled that of a small MPV but its successor is designed to fit more into the small hatchback category. The car is designed to have a more spacious feel thanks to the taller roof which Nissan describes as an “air cabin” and apparently, it can’t be found on any other vehicle in this class.

Not only does the Nissan Note look a lot sexier than the previous generation, the Note is also extremely fuel efficient. The Japanese variant will come in two engine options, a 1.2-liter three-cylinder gasoline engines in naturally aspirate and supercharged. Both engines will feature the next-generation XTRONIC CVT with IDS (Idling Stop System).

According to Nissan, the supercharged version is capable of delivering 58.9mpg (4.0lt/100km). One of the cool and advanced features on the car is Nissan’s AVM (Around View Monitor) parking assistance system which is generally found on their luxury vehicles from Infinity. Nissan has not yet released details on what types of output the engine produces but it should be noted that the 1.2-liter Nissan Micra engines deliver 79hp and 97hp. The Note should be in the same territory.

Hi Guys, I’d like to take the time to thank you for reading some info about me. My mission here as a writer at Unfinished man, is to entertain and inform on all things, from cars and gadgets, to reviews and life. I have a Bachelor in business but never really enjoyed school. I’d much prefer to spend time working on Unfinished Man than spending my days working long hours in some stuffy office. I love green tea and pistachios and my favourite fruit is pomegranate (weird I know). I hate the water but love nature, especially the nature here in my adopted country of Canada.

  1. The old Note (2010) had electric folding mirrors, the new one hasn’t.Even though I bought the same level e.g. Tekna . I feel this is a retrograde step by Nissan. the handbook carl shows switches for this operation and no other operation.
