The new Nissan Note is available to order now, with prices starting from £11,900.

From launch, the range consists of three engines: a 1.2-litre three-cylinder unit with 80 PS, a 98 PS 1.2-litre supercharged DIG-S, and a 1.5-litre diesel with 90 PS.  The 1.2 DIG-S is available with a CVT transmission.

There are four grades to choose from.  The £11,900 Visia includes stop/start, electric front windows, remote central locking and cruise control.

The Acenta, priced from £13,250, adds alloy wheels (15-inch on all but the DIG-S which wears 16s), air conditioning, Bluetooth and a sliding rear bench seat.

Acenta Premium starts at £14,150 and includes satellite navigation, climate control, automatic headlights and automatic wipers.

The top-of-the-range Tekna model starts at £15,950 and adds 16-inch alloy wheels, part-leather seats, leather steering wheel, automatic air conditioning, Intelligent Key with remote start, Around View Monitor, and the new Nissan Safety Shield system.

The Safety Shield system includes Blind Sport Warning, Lane Departure Warning and Moving Object Detection, all of which use a single camera mounted on the rear tailgate.  To keep the camera’s lens clear, a unique lens-cleaning feature has been added.  Standard on Tekna models, the system can be added to the Acenta Premium grade for an additional £400.

An £800 Dynamic Styling Pack can also be added to the Tekna model, with unique alloy wheels and deeper front and rear aprons.

Available to order now, first deliveries of the new Nissan Note are expected in October.
