Nissan Note generations

When it debuted in 2004, the Nissan Note was needed to fill a spot between the B- and C-segments. Two years later, it was on the roads of the UK. The second generation was unveiled in 2013 with major updates, but the Note didn't make it past the 2017 model year before it was discontinued in the UK.

Second Generation (2013 to 2017)

The second-generation Note was revealed in 2013, using the same platform as the Micra. Not only did its appearance improve, but it also had more comfort features and extra space compared to the original models. The V-shaped front was accentuated with swept-back headlights, and an A-shaped grille was adorned with fog lights on higher trim levels.

Inside the cabin, the centre console featured an infotainment system with navigation and a touchscreen. There were also several petrol and diesel engine options at the time it was discontinued.

First Generation (2006 to 2013)

The Renault-Nissan Alliance was responsible for the creation of the Nissan Note with its narrow hatchback design. Early models featured a short bonnet, tall body and swept-back headlights that gave it a distinctive look. Its small, compact size made it nimble and easy to park.

After just a couple of years, Nissan released a refresh to comply with Euro 5 regulations, creating lower CO2 emissions and more efficiency. The exterior appearance was also changed to include a reworked grille and chrome trim above the bumper.
