What used Nissan Note hatchback will I get for my budget?
Prices start at £4000 for an early 2013 1.2 petrol car with a high mileage. If you want a diesel, you’ll need to spend a little bit more, because they start at £4500.
The supercharged 1.2 petrol is rare, and therefore worth more money, so you would need to up the budget to £6000 to find one.
The Nissan Note was discontinued in late 2016. If you are interested in going for one of the last examples registered, be prepared to spend about £12,000.
How much does it cost to run a Nissan Note hatchback?
Fuel economy is very reasonable with the Note; even the worst-performing 1.2 DIG-S auto model has an average figure of 55.4mpg and costs £30 in road tax. The non-supercharged 79bhp version is a little better at 60.1mpg and costs £20 in road tax. Our preferred 1.2 DIG-S manual model is the best for fuel economy out of the petrol range, posting a combined figure of 65.7mpg, with free road tax.
The diesel beats that, unsurprisingly, with most models averaging 78.5mpg and scooting into the free road tax bracket.
Unlike most service schemes, a Nissan dealer can service your car according to its fixed-price list at any age. The fee even extends to individual repair costs, such as replacement brake pads. Taking advantage of dealer servicing also entitles you to one year’s worth of European breakdown cover.
