Series Description

As a compact family van, the Nissan Note has been conquering the world's roads since 2006 and has everything on board that a family car in its class simply has to have. The 4 meter long vehicle is very spacious and offers the largest interior space in its class. The interior is not only flexible, but also offers many safety-related refinements with its ABS, the EBD, a brake assistant as well as driver, front passenger and side airbags.



Nissan note exterior

The second generation of the Nissan Note is very dynamic and sporty. The doors are large and open easily , making it easy to get in and out. All doors are equipped with mechanisms that almost completely rule out premature closing. The trunk is also easy to load. The tailgate opens slightly, but not so high that tall people over 1.80 meters can safely walk under it. The ** loading sill is only 65 centimeters above the road**, so loading is not a problem.

Two sealing strips protect the door sills from dirt . Unfortunately, there is no such protection for the engine compartment from below. The entire lower area is completely uncovered.

The doors are also not protected against scratches from small bumps, since there are no side rails.

Plenty of storage compartments are installed for relaxed driving. In addition to cup holders, the center console even has a special holder for bottles . The glove compartment is also big enough for all sorts of odds and ends. Unfortunately, it is not illuminated when driving at night.

If the seats are pushed all the way back, every passenger feels free and not cramped. Very tall people can also sit comfortably on the back seat and enjoy enough legroom. During breaks, the backrests of both the driver's and front passenger's seats can be folded back completely, so that a good lying position is possible .

The room air inside the vehicle can be well regulated by the heating and the air conditioning . While the air is cooled to the previously set temperature quite quickly on hot days, the heater only moderately warms up the cold air. Warm air is quickly available in the footwell , but it takes up to 15 minutes for it to circulate throughout the vehicle.


The curb weight of the Nissan Note Type 1.4 is specified by the manufacturer as 1,228 kilograms. The payload is 387 kilograms. The 1.6 type is slightly lighter at 1,107 kilograms unladen and can transport up to 453 kilograms of cargo. In addition to the roof load of 50 kilograms, the maximum additional weight may be more than 500 kilograms . This means that the minivan can also easily transport larger and heavier loads, which is otherwise rather unusual in this vehicle class.

The normal trunk volume is 280 liters. That's not much for a minivan, but the back seat can be easily moved to create more volume. Overall, the Note with the rear seat shifted creates an impressive storage space of 1,332 liters .
