Used Nissan Note 2013-2017 review

Used Nissan Note 13-17

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

The Honda Jazz has plenty of interior flexibility, thanks to a rear bench that can fold down or be split in a number of ways – even allowing for a bicycle (without the front wheel, of course) to be loaded across the car. It’s also very reliable, featuring near the top of our most recent survey.

The Toyota Yaris stands out in this class because you can buy one with a hybrid engine, bringing useful benefits such as low fuel consumption in town and ultra-low road tax costs.

Meanwhile, the Skoda Fabia was never an expensive car when new, so it still represents good value for money. It’s very well equipped and, as well as in hatchback form, it is also available as an estate; that's unusual in this market and provides a useful amount of extra luggage capacity over the standard car.
