Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Nissan Note hatchback?

The Note’s main rival is the second-generation Honda Jazz. Introduced in 2008, it is even more spacious, with cleverer rear seats, although the Note has a more forgiving ride.

If it’s something slightly larger that you’re after, then the Citroen C3 Picasso is worth considering. Launched in 2009, the Picasso has funky styling, an airy interior and a smooth ride, while visibility is excellent. However, it’s reliability record isn’t as good as the Note’s.
