Nissan Note Hatchback (2013 - )

The Nissan Note does a reasonable job in most areas, but some rivals do better. For instance, the Note’s practicality is one of the high points, but a Citroen C3 Picasso does better on that score, plus it’s also more stylish and better on quality. Most disappointing with the Note, though, is that the jumpy ride and inconsistent controls make the car rather too wearing to drive.

The Note’s interior is a curious mix of positives and negatives. On the plus side, the high-spec models we drove come with an intuitive touch-screen infotainment system that’s dead easy to use, plus four-way parking cameras that make manoeuvres easier. The air-con controls are also a doddle to use, too but the driving position is a mess: the pedals are offset to the right, the steering wheel only adjusts for height and not reach - a problem for taller drivers, in our experience - and the driver’s seat feels too lofty, even in its lowest setting. The wide windscreen pillars also obscure your view at junctions and, while there are some pleasantly chunky-feeling panels, too many of the plastics that you see and use in daily life are hard and unappealing. Several pieces of trim even flex in your hands, which is very disappointing,
