Nissan has released a fresh set of images with the second generation of the Note, ahead of its public debut scheduled for the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.
The new generation of the Nissan Note is now aiming B-class hatchbacks such as the Volkswagen Polo, the Renault Clio, the Ford Fiesta, the Peugeot 208, the Citroen C3 or the Opel Corsa, rather than being a small MPV and, we must admit, its new looks makes it more attractive. We don’t exactly understand Nissan’s strategy on the Note but judging on its yet-to-be-known starting price, this might burry the Micra, which is the official B-segment model.
The 2014 Nissan Note is getting some interesting features, most of them coming from the Micra or even from the larger Qashqai, including the Around View Monitor, the premium quality materials and some other tweaks. Under the hood, the new generation of the Nissan Note will get a 1.2 liter three-cylinder in the entry-level version, which is good for 80 HP at 6,000 rpm and 110 Nm of torque, available at 4,000 rpm. The mid-range Note will get a DIG-S unit with 98 HP and 142 Nm of torque. A 1.5 liter dCi turbo diesel, with 90 HP, will also become available for the new Note.
