For The Note offers genuine space and practicality for a small family. It also rides well, is cheap to buy and affordable to run, too.
Against There's too much vibration at the wheel and pedals in the diesel models, the clutch pedal itself is quite stiff and the wheel has no reach adjustment.
What Car? says
The Note is not the biggest mini-MPV, but there's easily enough room for four adults. Happily, it's also pleasant to drive and cheap to buy.

Target Price team says:
The Nissan Note might look small from the outside but in the cabin it keeps up with the best mini-MPVs when it comes to space. Head- and legroom are brilliant front and back.
All that space won't set you back much, either, because the Note is cheap to buy compared with rivals. The petrol models are cheapest, starting with the naturally aspirated 1.2-litre followed by the supercharged 1.2. The supercharged petrol has to be worked quite hard but it remains quiet and smooth.
The 1.5-litre diesel is a strong engine but it's noisy, and there's too much vibration felt through the wheel and pedals.
Every Note gets six airbags, cruise control, front electric windows, power-folding door mirrors and a radio/CD player with USB input. Acenta trim adds air-con, Bluetooth, rear electric windows, a multi-position boot shelf and 15in alloy wheels. Acenta Premium gives you auto lights and wipers, climate control and a 5.8in touch-screen sat-nav.
