The new Nissan Note Acenta variant provides for a small car sensational much space, but it has weaknesses. In particular, the three cylinder engine with puny torque is rather no gain. Even at first glance, we are missing something in the second generation of the little Nissan Note Acenta, the distinctive boomerang shaped tail lights that were far drawn into the roof edge. We find the new note looks much more conventional, boring, but everyone has to decide for themselves.
As a mini minivan the grade II based on the current Renault Clio. This provides for an exterior length of just 4.10 meters and a wheelbase of 2.60 meters initially for princely space. The space in the back is sensational for a short car, 30 inches of legroom no one else offers. So you can actually start with a sliding rear bench seat, but she is only standard in the best equipment line. Then the trunk size varies 325 to 411 liters. Our test car did not have this bank, the trunk volume is so then 325 liters. After folding the asymmetrically split rear bench seat, a cargo area yields of just 1.50 meters length, but with a large stage. However, Extremely cheap made is the barrel cover.
Families looking for an affordable, not too big, but very roomy car must pull the score only because of its spatial qualities into consideration. The price for the basic version of Nisan Note Acenta 1.2 “Visia” is 20,990 Dollars. These are even a few dollars less than the predecessor had cost.
There is also a radio CD combination with Bluetooth interface for mobile phones (otherwise 2600 dollars extra charge) and also air conditioning, power windows on the rear doors, a height adjustable driver’s seat, controls for the radio in the steering wheel and color keyed exterior mirrors. This must always be electrically adjusted. Also known as the Nissan Visia has start stop, 6 airbags, a remote controlled central locking, ABS, ESP, power steering and even cruise control.
The Nissan Note Acenta engine is loud and noisy. And it has to turn up, also because the rather bony to use manual transmission only has 5 passages. Even with a quick time of only 110 km / h at 3200 rpm already. No wonder that even at this relatively low speed on average 5.6 liters per 100 kilometers Super are consumed. Our overall average amounted even to 7.3 liters per 100 kilometers at a maximum of 8.1 liters for a quick car ride (maximum speed 170 km / h). The standard consumption is 4.7 liters of premium, which means a CO2 emission of 108 g / km. You can not say anything against the straight, the Nissan Note Acenta feels always securely. It was noticeable otherwise only that the driven front wheels when starting often shuffled across the street.
Looking at the overall picture, it must be said that other students have better grades. But this can also be the other two note variants, with 1.2 liter four cylinder engine with compressor (98 PS/72 kW) or 1.5 liter four cylinder turbo diesel (90 kW PS/66) and almost the twice the torque as the little three cylinder gasoline engine. As Visia the diesel costs 26,280 dollars, the compressor motor is available as Nissan Note Acenta for 27,290 dollars. Only for this engine is an automatic (CVT) in the offer, for 2500 dollars. So if touch, then maybe better not with the little 1.2 liter engine.
