With a spacious cabin and boot space, the Nissan Note makes a good mini-MPV hatchback for growing families. The Nissan Note has good performance on the road and efficient engines help to keep the model’s running costs down.

The Nissan Note competes with other MPVs and compact cars on the market including the Kia Venga, the Citroën C3 Picasso, the Honda Jazz and the Vauxhall Meriva.

Nissan Note updates and facelifts

Originally launched in 2005, the Nissan Note was available in the UK until 2017. The Mk2 was launched in 2013, making some subtle design changes that gave the Note a more modern body kit, and an optional infotainment system was included in the interior.

Practicality and style of the car

There are plenty of storage spaces in the cabin of the Note which help to keep the interior clutter free. In the front, there is a large double-decker glovebox, a pair of cupholders and a cubby in the centre of the cabin. In the rear, there is a pair of cupholders on the fold-down armrest in the centre seat. There are also a pair of fold-down tray tables on the back of the front seats. Decent-sized door bins also provide space to keep water bottles and other personal items out of the way when not in use.

The Nissan Note has a boot space of 325 litres that can be expanded to 411 litres by sliding the rear bench forward. By folding the rear seats down, it frees up 1,495-litre boot space, which makes transporting large items or storage boxes easy. This is a larger boot than the Honda Jazz which has 304 litres and 1,205 litres when expanded. The Note also has an increased boot size compared to the C3 Picasso which has a 922-litre boot.

The boot also features Nissan’s Flexiboard, which allows drivers to create separate compartments . This is useful for keeping any fragile cargo in place when transporting it. There is also a waterproof side which is great for separating any dirty or wet items.

There is also an adjustable boot floor, which comes on the Acenta trim level and above. This allows owners to lower or raise the boot floor depending on their preferences. When raised it creates a useful underfloor storage area to keep valuables out of sight or safety equipment stowed away.

Other useful features include shopping hooks to prevent shopping bags from falling over and a 12v power socket for charging on the move.

Running costs

The Nissan Note falls into insurance groups 6 to 10 and has an annual road tax of up to £180. In comparison to its rivals, the Note falls into a lower insurance group range and is relatively affordable to run. The Honda Jazz, for example, sits in insurance groups 18 to 22, and the Kia Venga falls into groups 7 to 15.

Features you can expect in a Nissan Note


The interior of the Nissan Note is furnished with high-quality, robust materials. Soft-touch plastics have also been used throughout the cabin. The model comes well-equipped, offering drivers useful technology and adequate storage space.

The Nissan Note handles well on the road and the suspension provides a firm ride that handles rough roads and bumps well. Road, wind and engine noise is also hushed in the interior, making for a pleasant driving experience.

The interior of the Nissan Note is very spacious with large windows and comfortable seats. Five adults can travel comfortably in the Note; there is plenty of legroom and headroom in both the front and rear, making long journeys comfortable for all occupants. On the Acenta Premium trim and higher, the rear bench can slide backwards or forwards, either giving occupants more room or freeing up extra space in the boot.

On the Acenta Premium trim and above, the Note’s dashboard features a 5.8-inch infotainment screen. This uses the NissanConnect system along with USB, Bluetooth and AUX connectivity. This allows drivers to connect their smartphones to play their personal music and make hands-free calls. It also includes an integrated sat nav and DAB radio.

The infotainment system is controlled via the touchscreen interface or via the shortcut buttons on the outside of the screen. The menu has crisp graphics and is easy to navigate. On the entry-level Visia trim and the Acenta trim, this area features a stereo system instead, which includes a CD player as well as Bluetooth, USB and AUX connectivity, and a DAB radio.

From the dashboard, you can adjust the air conditioning in the car. The audio controls on the steering wheel in the Acenta trim allow the driver to control onboard entertainment without taking their hands off the steering wheel.


The Nissan Note comes with cruise control, which maintains the speed of the vehicle when activated on motorways, enhancing driver convenience on long journeys. A stop/start system reduces the amount of time the engine spends idling, in traffic or at traffic lights, helping to reduce fuel consumption and emissions. Auto wipers and headlights also turn on automatically when they detect rain or low levels of light.

Other features include keyless entry and tyre pressure monitoring. An around-view camera displays live footage around the car, showing any potential obstructions and helping drivers avoid collisions.


Scoring four stars out of five on the Euro NCAP safety test scores, the Nissan Note also scored well on adult and child occupant protection scores. The Note scored 86% and 82%, respectively, nearly matching the Honda Jazz, which scored 87% and 83%. The Note outscored the Vauxhall Meriva’s 77% for child protection.

Safety features include a series of airbags around the cabin for front and rear passenger protection as well as two ISOFIX points located in the outermost rear seats for securing child seats. Blind spot monitoring alerts drivers to other vehicles or cyclists in their blind spots. A lane departure warning system alerts the driver when the car is close to the edges of the lane on motorways so that the driver can centre the vehicle.
