New-gen Nissan Note officially unveiled image

The Japanese based automaker Nissan has recently unveiled the second generation of the Note, where the model is now positioned more as a hatchback than an MPV.

The new generation of the Nissan Note has been inspired on its design by the Invitation Concept, unveiled last year in Geneva. The model will be launched in markets like Japan and North America, but the one aimed towards the Old Continent will get some significant changes, which will include the extra character lines, the new grille, hood, new dashboard in the cabin, new seats and, of course, the new alloy wheels, amongst 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.

The cheapest version of the 2014 Nissan Note will be offered with a 1.2 liter petrol engine under its hood, which will produce a total output of 79 HP and 81 lb-ft of torque. The model will return 60.1 mpg (UK) and it will emit 109 g/km of CO2. A DIG-S version will also become available on the new Note, with its 97 HP and 105 lb-ft of torque, along with the 1.5 dCi diesel generating 89 HP and 162 lb-ft of torque. Additional details on the second-gen Nissan Note are limited for the moment and will be announced soon.
