The Nissan Note is a modern-looking, well-built small car that’s a little larger than a conventional supermini but the benefits of this come in the exceptional space efficiency and flexibility of its well planned interior. It’s a match for many larger family hatchbacks for passenger space and luggage space, making it a front-runner for those seeking maximum practicality for the money.

It has other attributes too, though. The engine range is small but all the motors are modern and very fuel efficient, while the DIG-S 98 petrol and dCi 90 diesel both pull well in combination with that excellent fuel economy.

Another Note positive is its high-tech infotainment system, which includes sat nav, clever apps and even internet radio. The fact it’s included in the list price of many models is a real bonus – and almost makes up for the Note’s slightly drab interior and cheap-feeling interior plastics. 

Overall, the Note offers great value for money and tremendous practicality.

Nissan offers just three engines with the Note, two petrol engines and a single 1.5-litre diesel that’s shared with many other models in the Renault-Nissan Alliance. The entry-level 79bhp 1.2-litre is a three-cylinder unit that performs well enough, with a reasonably torquey nature and smooth, free-revving manners.

The petrol engine you really want is the 1.2 DiG-S, a 97bhp supercharged version of the base three-cylinder motor. Introducing tech normally associated with high-performance Jaguars, the supercharger boosts power and, in particular, torque: instead of producing 110Nm, the high-power DiG-S 98 produces 147Nm, which has a significant effect on in-gear flexibility, cutting back on downshifts. 

Naturally, the supercharged 1.2-litre engine is the fastest Note on sale, although it’s perhaps not as fast as its high-tech nature sounds: it does 0-62mph in 11.8 seconds, instead of the regular car’s 13.7 seconds. An Xtronic CVT automatic version of the DiG-S is also available, which does 0-100kph in 12.6 seconds.
