The second version of the Nissan Note, launched in 2012, was a little better looking, a little larger and a little better equipped. Overall, making this little car a hit with young families.
Cheap to buy and run, this ideal A-to-B runabout sold well in a crowded sector, saturated further by good offerings from the Korean brands.
Nissan’s reputation for reliability helped get the buyers in the showroom, where the Note’s party piece could be displayed by the sales agent – it’s the Tardis in disguise! Compact and easy to park but with plenty of space in the back, fitted with a trick rear bench that can slide forwards to expand boot space, depending on the job at hand.
The Note fell into a strange category, the ‘Mini MPV’ and they did a good job of it. Despite not winning any awards for styling or interior plastic quality for that matter, Nissan knew their target market and as a result, makes for a common sight throughout Europe.
FAI offer a broad range of high-quality components to help keep the Note on the road.
