Nissan has revealed the first images of its next-generation B-segment Note ahead of the Geneva Motor Show next month.
The new model will be built in Sunderland and Nissan now believes that new design elements and technology features on the Note will now make it a true B-segment contender which will “redefine customer expectations”.
Customers will be able to specify a Safety Shield package of technologies including Blind Spot Warning system, Lane Departure Warning and an advanced Moving Object Detection system. All three systems operate using data from the rear wide view camera.
The new Note will also offer Around View Monitor (AVM) – Nissan’s multi-camera helicopter view parking aid giving visibility around the car.
Additionally, the new Note embeds the latest version of the Nissan Connect navigation system, including all its connected services.
There will be a model that emits 95g/km CO2 when fitted with idle stop/start from launch.
Geraldine Ingham, chief marketing manager for Nissan in Europe, said: “New Note fulfils a really important role in our line-up, combining really smart design with technology that has never been offered in the B-segment before.
“We’ve used design and engineering innovation to make premium technologies accessible and affordable.”
Prices and specifications will be unveiled closer to the new Note’s European on-sale date in the autumn of 2013.
