Here is a car that will strike a chord. Jazz Notes-rival Nissan has given a new look for 2011 model year. Both Acenta and Tekna value now features a silver door handles and tailgate trim, and glossy black B-and C-pillars, while n-TEC get a new front spoiler.
The British built Nissan Note enters the 2011 model year 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.
From the outside, the tall supermini 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. The addition of two new metallic colors, Magnetic Red and Grey, round off the exterior changes on the Note.
For the 2011MY, 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.
However, despite all the extra kit, Nissan has left rates unchanged for the new entry, meaning the range still starts at £ 10.895. These new arrivals are available to order now, with the Euro V compliant diesel models became available in November.
Buyers can also benefit from UK Nissan Built-in Trading Scheme which allows subscribers to receive notes secured £ 1000 minimum trade in against the cars they give it for seven years. The scheme will run throughout the month of August and September.
