Hot Car Deal – Nissan NoteSave thousands on this practical little MPV

21 June 2013

IMPORTANT: Read the information at the bottom of this page before going ahead with any car purchase.

The Nissan Note is a flexible and practical small people carrier. It's good for ferrying a small family around and now that it's about to be replaced by an all-new Note, there are some great deals to be had.

Initially launched in 2006 and updated in 2010, the Note remains an economical choice. 

We've tested several models, including the latest 1.5-litre diesel Note, which recorded an acceptable 57.6mpg in our fuel economy test, although this is some way off Nissan's claim of 67.3mpg.

Trial Which? for just £1 to read our full test of the Nissan Note



£2,500 off diesel Nissan Note

The Note is available in three trim levels: entry-level Visia, Acenta and n-tec+. We'd avoid the Visia as it doesn't come with stability control as standard - this is an important piece of safety equipment that can help keep the car under control in emergency situations.

Instead, we'd opt for the Acenta trim level and the 90bhp 1.5 dCi diesel engine. This trim level provides some useful kit, including cruise control and automatic headlights.

The 1.5 Visia would normally cost £12,840, but Nationwide Cars is offering  it for £10,287, meaning you save £2,553.

Nissan Note n-tec+ for £9,795

If you're planning on driving less than around 11,000 miles per year, the 1.4 petrol-powered Note could actually work out cheaper to own than the diesel, as it has lower list prices. The top-spec n-tec+ model comes with rear parking sensors and Nissan Connect, which includes a sat nav as well as Bluetooth and iphone connectivity. 

We've found a £3,950 saving on this model with the 1.4-litre engine. It's an ex-demo vehicle from Perrys, priced at £9,795.

Hot Deal hunters please note:

  • The car brokers and deals featured are not vetted, endorsed or recommended by Which?. Always check the specifics of the deal so you know exactly what you are getting and who is supplying the car.Make sure all aspects of the deal are confirmed in writing before committing to buy.
  • Not all brokers deal in UK sourced vehicles, and this may have an impact on standard equipment and warranty levels.
  • The term ‘pre-reg’ or ‘pre-registered’ refers to vehicles that are brand new but already registered with the DVLA. This means that you will appear as the second owner on the V5 registration document.
  • Beware of unscrupulous brokers who tell you they will have to retain the V5 registration document for a period of time after your purchase of the car. Vehicles sold this way may be cheap, but there are legal implications, including the risk that you the buyer could be committing a criminal offence when you drive the car, so they should be avoided.
