2011 NISSAN NOTE
2011 Nissan Note with a few subtle trim and equipment upgrades, plus tweaked 1.4 and 1.6-litre petrol engines that now comply with the latest Euro V emissions regulations. The addition of two new metallic colors, Magnetic Red and Grey, round off the exterior changes on the Note.
The tall supermini’s exterior receives some styling enhancements in the form of silver painted door handles and tailgate trim, plus gloss black B and C-pillars for the Acenta and Teckna grades. The ‘n-tec’ version gets a new front spoiler finisher and front entry guards.
All variants of the Note are fitted with standard ESP. Furthermore, the Acenta versions benefit from a new audio system with USB and iPod slots, while the n-tec models get standard climate control, auto lighting and auto wiper systems. Finally, Nissan’s previously optional Intelligent Key is now standard on the top-spec Tekna’s equipment list.
