2017 Nissan Note: Thai prices and specs

Spacious B-segment hatchback aims to steal shares from the Honda Jazz with lower retail prices.

Nissan Motor Thailand has officially launched the Note, a spacious B-segment hatchback aimed at stealing shares from the Honda Jazz.

Priced from 568,000 baht in entry-level form and 640,000 baht in range-topping guise, the Note forms as the brand’s third model under the country’s Ecocar Phase I project after the March hatchback and Almera saloon.

Like in its two cousins, the Note uses the same platform, 79hp 1.2-litre petrol engine and CVT automatic transmission. Fuel consumption is rated at 20kpl and CO2 emissions at 120g/km.

Nissan has chosen to highlight some driver-assist technologies in the Note including all-round view monitor, forward collision mitigation, automatic braking and lane departure warning system. 

Other safety features include dual airbags and stability control made standard across the range.

The Note sits on the same 2.6m-long wheelbase as the Almera to help for class-leading rear legroom. Nissan has squarely eyed the Jazz, a non-Ecocar which has a more powerful 117hp 1.5-litre petrol motor and higher price range of 594,000-754,000 baht.

Although the Note is a completely new model for the Thai market, it is essentially a facelifted version of that sold elsewhere. Notable changes include V-Motion front grille and new three-spoke flat-bottomed steering wheel fitted onto the Almera-shared fascia.

Depending on grade, there’s a touchscreen to control various audio functions and Bluetooth.
