Smart new n-tec trim released for Nissan Note

Nissan has introduced a new trim level for the Note compact family car. The new n-tec model sits between the top-spec Tekna and middle of the range Acenta Premium levels.

Choose this new trim and you’ll mostly get new cosmetic details to set it apart from the rest of the range.

Outside, the n-tec is distinguished by a new sporty-looking front and rear bumpers, black headlamp bezels and privacy (tinted) glass for the rear windows. Silver door mirror covers and handles are unique to the n-tec, as are the 16-inch alloy wheels and Ink Blue Metallic paint – the finish shown in the photos on this page.

Subtle blue touches appear on the inside too, most notably on the stitching of the leather steering wheel. A 5.8-inch touchscreen controls the satellite navigation system, while also taking care of the DAB (digital) radio and rear-view camera.

The n-tec also benefits from the Tekna trim level’s safety features, such as blind-spot warning, moving object detection and lane departure warning. Power comes courtesy of a 1.2-litre petrol engine, producing 79hp and emitting 109g/km of CO2 – that means it’ll cost just £20 per year to tax.

The Note n-tec starts from £15,365 – almost exactly splitting the £1,790 difference between the Tekna and Acenta trim levels in half. Prices start at £10,050 for the entry-level version of the Japanese firm’s answer to the Honda Jazz and Volkswagen Polo.
