NISSAN NOTE Hatchback 1.2 DiG-S Acenta 5dr

The Nissan Note is great for families and although this petrol engine has to be worked quite hard, it stays smooth. Acenta trim makes the most sense.

Trim level

Visia
Entry-level Visia trim keeps the Note’s price low but the standard kit level is a little mean. Bluetooth, front electric windows and a USB socket are included, but air-con, rear electric windows, alloy wheels, driver’s seat height adjustment and steering wheel stereo controls are absent.
Our pick
Acenta
In terms of price and equipment level, this trim represents great value for money and is our top choice. Standard kit includes everything you get with entry-level Visia plus desirable extras such as air-con, electric rear windows, steering wheel stereo controls, a height-adjustable driver’s seat and alloy wheels. You also get a handy multi-position boot floor, heated door mirrors and upgraded exterior trim.
Acenta Style
This is a trim for those that place sporty looks above value for money. The additions over Acenta are purely cosmetic, including larger alloy wheels and a body kit. We think you’re much better off saving your money or choosing more luxurious Acenta Premium trim.
Acenta Premium
This trim level provides a surprising amount of luxury kit for such a little car. Standard features include a touchscreen sat-nav system, a DAB radio, automatic headlights and wipers, and climate control. It pushes the price up, but even this high-spec Note represents decent value for money.
n-tec
This trim is reserved for the entry-level engine and blends most of Acenta Style’s cosmetic upgrades with Acenta Premium’s luxury kit, so it’s very well equipped. It also comes with a useful rear-view camera, and blind spot and lane departure warning systems. However, despite all this kit, you’re still left with the weakest engine in the range. A 1.2 DIG-S or 1.5 dCi model in Acenta trim is a more sensible choice.
Tekna
This trim level is reserved for 1.2 DIG-S and 1.5 dCi models, and gives buyers an impressive quantity of kit including part-leather trim, climate control, automatic headlights and wipers, sat-nav and DAB radio. You get a wide range of safety and convenience features, too, including an Around View Monitor that gives you a handy bird’s-eye view of the car – useful when parking – and moving-object-detection, and blind-spot and lane departure warning systems. All this pushes up the Note’s price, however. We’d recommend forgoing some kit for cheaper versions that are better value.
Tekna Style
This is the top-spec model in the Note range. It adds cosmetic exterior upgrades to the lavish kit you get with the standard Tekna model. It’s not hugely expensive but cheaper Note models make a lot more sense.
