This is the new Nissan Note which debuted in Japan:<p><IMG SRC="http://press.nissan-global.com/COMMON/IMAGES/CURRENT_JP/NOTE/LOW/note_01.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://press.nissan-global.com/COMMON/IMAGES/CURRENT_JP/NOTE/LOW/note_02.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://press.nissan-global.com/COMMON/IMAGES/CURRENT_JP/NOTE/LOW/note_06.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Source: <A HREF="http://press.nissan-global.com" TARGET="_blank">http://press.nissan-global.com</A><p>From the official press-release:<p>Highlights of the new Note include:<br> Spirited driving from HR15DE engine and XTRONIC CVT with confident handling<br> A stylish, comfortable interior with a roomy cabin and cargo area<br> A double-decker multiconfigurable trunk providing flexible convenience <p>Note Overview<p>1. Advanced powertrain <br>The Note is fitted with the newly developed all-aluminum 1.5 liter 16-valve engine paired with Nissanfs XTRONIC CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission). The result is quick throttle response and smooth, powerful acceleration in a variety of driving situations, as well as good fuel economy.<p>The Note adopts a strut suspension at the front and a torsion beam suspension at the rear. In addition, the Note is fitted with rebound springs, ripple-control shock absorbers and other suspension features usually found on upscale models that provide excellent handling and stability combined with superb ride comfort and quietness.<p>2. A fresh exterior design and a stylish, comfortable interior<br>Executed around the themes of "reassuring,h genjoyableh and gsurprising,h the exterior projects a look of high functionality. Notable features of the fresh, stylish exterior design include the large headlamps and the distinctly shaped rear combination lamps.<p>The interior design blends enjoyment with stylishness, with meticulous care taken in the execution of fine details. Interior color choices include bright Bossa Beige trim and modern-looking Jet Black trim. <p>The Note lineup includes the 15RX model, which exudes a sporty yet premium-quality look. The model features 15-inch aluminum alloy wheels with a bright finish, a Euro-tuned suspension and a roof spoiler. The interior comes with silver-colored finishers on the steering wheel and shift knob, among other places, as well as Jet Black trim and other exclusive appointments.<p>3. A roomy, open interior within a compact body<br>Despite its short overall length of 3,990 mm, the Note has a long wheelbase of 2,600 mm. The result is a comfortable, roomy cabin combined with ample cargo space. Even users who switch from a larger car will be satisfied with the generous interior.<p>The rear seat offers added width thanks to the absence of wheelhouse intrusions. The added roominess is possible because the long wheelbase allows the rear wheels to be positioned behind the seat. In addition, the thick rear seat cushion enables passengers to ride in relaxing comfort.<p>The slightly high hip point of the Notefs seats and the low waistline ensure excellent outward visibility. <p>Despite the modelfs long wheelbase, the Note still achieves a minimum turning radius of 4.7 meters for nimble agility.<p>4. A double-decker multiconfigurable trunk <br>The Note features a double-decker multiconfigurable trunk designed for flexible and convenient storage of cargo. The rear cargo area can easily be arranged into four handy configurations.<br> Nidan (double-decker) trunk mode: This configuration provides a double-decker cargo area with a 250-mm-deep underfloor compartment, enabling items to be stowed separately on the upper and lower levels.<br> Open mode: Removing the lid of the underfloor compartment and using it as a vertical partition makes it possible to stow items of different heights neatly in the front and rear areas.<br> Tappuri (plentiful) mode: Removing the lid and placing it at the bottom of the underfloor compartment creates ample space for accommodating large items.<br> Easy flat mode: Folding down the rear seat creates a flat floor for carrying long items.<p>5. Safety and environmental performance<br>Standard safety features on all models include front-seat Active Head Restraints and dual SRS airbag systems for both the driver and front passenger.<p>The Note adopts a crash-compatible Zone Body construction that both improves self-protection and reduces damage to the other vehicle in a collision.<p>All Note models are certified as super ultra-low emission vehicles (SU-LEVs)* because they emit 75% fewer emissions than the levels mandated by Japan's 2005 exhaust emission regulations. All models also qualify for tax reductions under the Green Tax program in Japan, with the 2WD models achieving Japan's 2010 fuel economy standards plus an additional 5%.<p>As a result of design improvements made to enhance recyclability, the Note is more than 95% recyclable by weight.<p>*The low-emission vehicle certification system of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport was inaugurated in April 2000 to encourage the penetration of low-emission vehicles through their selection by ordinary consumers. Following the adoption of the 2005 new long-term exhaust emission regulations in September 2003, the system was revised in October of that year to establish two certification categories. U-LEV certification requires an additional 50% reduction of nitrogen oxide (NOx) and non-methane hydrocarbon (NMHC) emissions from the levels mandated by the 2005 exhaust emission regulations and SU-LEV certification requires an additional 75% reduction of these exhaust gas constituents.<p>Origin of the model name<br>The model name comes from the English word "note," signifying both an enjoyable daily rhythm and the recording of daily activities. It suggests the exciting anticipation one feels when beginning a new page in life.<p>Sales target: 8,000 units/month<p>Price range: 1,260,000 yen to 1,585,500 yen<p><br>We saw the 'Note' last year as a concept called 'Tone'. Here in Europe it will be the successor of the Almera, a slow-selling compact.<br>It is based on a platform that's already been used by the Renault Modus and the Nissan Micra and in the future will be used by next-generation Clio (September 2005) and Twingo (2006/7).<br>European debut is September 2005 (IAA Frankfurt) and it will be on sale January 2006. <p>Possible engines:<br>- 1.4 (88 PS)<br>- 1.6 (110 PS) new engine, developed with Renault<br>- 1.5 dCi (86 PS) Diesel<br><BR><BR>

I lie the car overall but I don't like<br>- cheap loking interior (looks like hard plastic galore)<br>- wheels look way too small. Bigger wheels would make it look like a little SUV<br>- Somehow the proportions. It seems to be too long...

All in all i like it, but there's something about it's proportions that does not fit. It's as long as a Meriva, but not any taller or wider than the Micra. People wanting a minivan will not buy it because of that, and it might be too long for the people searching for a citycar...i really don't know if it will work well, mostly when it's nothing special looking-wise.

I hope they change the wheel sizes before they start building it as the TONE in the UK, those tiny little wheels could easily be swallowed by the potholes on British roads

Blackraven

Wow, I like this one a lot especially in the blue color. Very striking and appealing for a small vehicle.<p>Judging from those two new pics, it seems pretty obvious that the overseas version (for European market???) of this vehicle will be called the NOTE (they can scrap the name TONE <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/bangin.gif" BORDER="0"> ). And since the pic is in LHD, it means Nissan has finalized the overseas version and is just waiting for a release date for next year.<p><br>Hey, maybe they should bring this thing to Asia (to be priced as an pure economy car). This compact Minivan/MPV could even make a great taxi (the taxi companies will trash away their old 1994 Mitsubishi Lancer taxis and perhaps, replace it with this one.) Just a thought but it could work out well.<p>Nevertheless, all I can say is that I'm indeed hoping for the release of the Nissan Note overseas version by 2006

Blackraven, I think using it as a taxi might have a negative effect on its trendy image... <br>Wouldn't it be interesting to see diesel taxis like say... a Hyundai Matrix CRDi?

If the Fit/Jazz does become a hot seller in the USA (given the price of gasoline nowadays it's hard not to be a hot seller) I think it wouldn't take much for Nissan to convert one of their final assembly lines in Mexico to build the Note for the US market. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> Mind you, I think Nissan would change the tail lights to a more conventional design if we see the Note in the US market.

Then again, the price of the Getz is very attractive (starting from 439,000 pesos). <p>But going back, I guess your right.<p>This car is too darn impressive for me.<p>But then again, any car, regardless of size, price, vehicle segment, looks, etc., can be used as a taxi cab.<p>No wonder there are so many Teana painted in "yellow" and Mercedes Benz Taxis all across Europe.

I agree with Bern - the first thing I thought was "lots of cheap shiny plastic in that interior"! It's interesting to see the pic of the European interior, though. It looks a lot better, so either the shiny look is the result of lighting for the photo, or they decided to splurge on soft-touch plastics for the Euro models.<p>Otherwise, it looks like a pretty nice family car. Nissan are doing some good styling at the moment. It's interesting, because so are Renault. No coincidence there, methinks...

spwolf

you cant have anything but hard plastic in this kind of car, to keep the pricing down. European version does look more grown up, so as long as pricing is fine, it will sell.

What's interesting was that the US market <i>almost</i> got the Nissan Note as the sub-Sentra sized car. But I think it's funky shape and the fact it couldn't be adapted into a four-door sedan made it a non-starter for the USA; instead, we got the Versa, which is the US version of the Nissan Tiida model.

The Versa is a lot worse than this IMHO. It was launched in Europe recently and saw a few. It's hideous. The Tone/Note/whatever is nice though.
