The Nissan Note is a cross between a small hatchback and an MPV, much like its rivals the Ford B-Max, Honda Jazz and Kia Venga. Thanks to its raised seating and boxy shape, it’s spacious and easy to get in and out of but compact, too. The rear seat and boot layout offer a degree of MPV-like flexibility but not quite versatility.
The model line-up ranges from the basic, entry-level Visia model to the top-spec Tekna Style loaded with high-tech kit.
However, there’s no sporty version and none of the engines offers much in the way of power. All of them are impressively frugal, though, which helps contribute to very low running costs. No Note is expensive to buy, either, so the model represents a lot of practicality for the money.
