Geneva Auto Show LIVE: Nissan Note image

Today, March 5th, Nissan has arrived at the Geneva Auto Show with several models among which the Nissan Note.

The second generation Nissan Note resembles more a B-segment hatchback rather than a small MPV, and the model will rival the Renault Clio, the Opel Corsa, the VW Polo, the Citroen C3 and the Ford Fiesta. The new Note comes with some interesting features, most of them seen at the Micra and even the Qashqai: the Around View Monitor, the premium quality materials, the automatic climate control and many more.

The new generation Nissan Note features a 1.2 liter three-cylinder in the entry-level version, which offers a total output of 80 HP at 6,000 rpm and 110 Nm of torque available at 4,000 rpm. The mid-range model will come with a DIG-S with 98 HP and 142 Nm of torque and, besides this, a 1.5 liter dCi turbo diesel will also become available for the model.

We can see at the 2014 Nissan Note something from the Invitation Concept design, unveiled in 2012 in Geneva. The model will reach markets such as North America and Japan, but also Europe where it will get some significant changes, which will include the extra character lines, the new grille, hood, the new alloy wheels, new seats, new dashboard in the cabin and others.

“Like the Qashqai and Juke, we’re offering the best of both worlds here: something that’s agile to drive but still roomy, and good to look at inside and out and still be comfortable”, said the Nissan Note’s marketing manager, Herve Genin.
