Nissan Note hatchback for Europe revealed
Nissan has announced that their second generation Note hatchback for Europe, is ready to be displayed at the 83rd Geneva International Auto Salon. Production will be initiated from the company plant in Sunderland, UK from summer 2013, with deliveries in Europe commencing from autumn 2013.
Nissan announced the new Note for the first time in July last year. Earlier this year, they showed us the Versa Note, their Note for US, at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. Now they reveal the Note for Europe with some cosmetic and mechanical changes. Nissan Note for Europe will be displayed first next month in Geneva.
As against its earlier model, new Nissan Note will resemble a hatchback and not the mini MPV as was earlier seen. The European model will come in with a host of cosmetic updates and mechanical adjustments as compared to the other Nissan Note’s sold across the globe. These upgrades will be in the form of better sculpted mirrors, new front grille inserts, while the company will be offering Dynamic Styling Pack as well for European car buyers. This new pack will include redesigned headlights and grille along with well shaped air intakes both at the front and rear.
Interiors will remain similar to the North American model specially where dashboard design is concerned, though the vehicle gets an enhanced instrument panel and centre console. Air vents will be rounded. Steering, suspension and chassis settings will also be enhanced for European markets adding to occupant comforts and handling.
Nissan will be offering their new Note with two 1.2 liter three cylinder gasoline engines along with a DIG-S variant each of which contribute to high fuel efficiency and lower level of auto emissions. Three trim levels of Visia, Acenta and Tekna will be available with a number of safety features specially for European markets.
