    My car

    This car is surprisingly spacious. The rear seat is adjustable to change the balance between boot space and rear seat legroom but don't think this is a compromise. Just a way of providing massive space for rear passengers. The Tech Pack provides a quite phenomenal facility. Cameras all round provide an overhead shot when parking, out of lane warnings, and much more. One problem on the road is the stiffness of the suspension. I would have preferred a softer ride than this car provides on today's hump laden roads. Economy doesn't seem to be quite as good as I had hoped but the car is only 3 months old and it appears to be improving. Certainly the engine is freeing up. My one gripe is the awful voice on the satnav. The pronunciation is appalling. When giving road numbers the A is emphasised in a strange way that is irritating. Added to this I often cannot understand road and place names. Of course this should tell you do meting of the car if the worst aspect is the satnav voice.

    My car

    I P/E my previous Nissan Note 1.4 N-Tec+ for a new 2013 Note last November. My previous 1.4 note was a 1.4, 4-cylinder, engine with reasonable torque, and I averaged 47mpg. My new Note, a 1.2 Acenta Premium plus 'safety Pack' is a 3 cylinder 1.2 engine with 'Stop/Start function & Eco function, reduced torque and after over 1000mls I am averaging 47mpg. The car would have been better if Nissan retained the previous model and added the new technology to that. So although I quite like the new Note, I am very disappointed with the new engine, the previous engine was much better.
