Nissan has always been in tune with its audience. Year after year they’ve introduced a flurry of different models, each bringing a new sound to their exciting line-up. Continuing this innovative streak, representatives have recently announced a bold new car that may change the industry. Called the ‘Note,’ lets take a look at what causing such noise!
Extensively tested in Europe, the vehicles most notable feature is its new Safety Shield. A technology that was previously only seen in the premium sector, the shield is an assortment of devices aimed at protecting the driver from various obstacles on the road. It includes a Blind Spot Warning system, Lane Departure Warning and an advanced Moving Object Detection system, each operating to protect the driver through a sophisticated camera which delivers a clear image no matter what the weather.
Additionally, Nissan has also told reporters that the car will be the first B-segment to include its Around View Monitor (AVM) system which provides the driver with multi-camera helicopter view parking assistance. The system makes parking simpler, enhancing urban driving and reducing the risk of costly body damage caused when the car is bumped while being parked.
Beyond the technological innovation, Nissan has also broken a few barriers when it comes to design. The vehicle is built on a lightweight platform, with a low aerodynamic drag exterior design and advanced engine and transmission technology. It is filled with elegant, fluid lines to enhance the bold design, setting this vehicle apart from others in the class.
This attention to detail is also felt on the inside of the car with an energetic design filled with premium quality materials, advanced technological features and class leading practicality. The dash in particular is design with a European flair, emphasizing maximum clarity at all times.
The company also told reports that the cars engine will be based on the same one used by the Nissan Micra, giving the consumer three powerful choices. The new Note will be offered with a 79bhp 1.2-litre petrol engine promising 60mpg economy, a 97bhp version producing 65.7mpg, and a diesel 1.5-litre option yielding an amazing 78.5mpg.
While the company has revealed a great deal about the car ahead of its official debut, stay tuned to the Geneva Motor show on March 5th to learn more, we know we certainly will.
