All-New 2024 Nissan Note from ¥2,299,000 in Japan

Nissan introduced the facelifted version of the Note in its home market in Japan, exactly three years after the debut of the third generation. The updates are focused on the exterior which adopts redesigned bumpers and new wheel covers, while the mechanical bits and the interior tech are largely carried over from the existing Note.

The highlight of the facelift is the revised V-motion grille that features slimmer horizontal slits and chrome accents. The slits are body-colored when combined with vivid exterior shades – including the new violet and turquoise options – or dark metal gray for the monochromatic shades. The front bumper received more conventional lower intakes, while the rear bumper gained an asymmetrical pattern between the reflectors.

Another cool touch is the new wheel covers which are inspired by Japanese geometric patterns and wouldn’t look out of place in a sci-fi movie. The only downside is that the concept-style wheel hubs look pretty small for the size of the vehicle, measuring 16 inches in diameter.
Moving inside, the 9-inch infotainment screen and the 7-inch digital instrument cluster are carried over from the outgoing model. To freshen up the looks, Nissan designers added new patterns on the dashboard insert and seat fabrics. More importantly, the glove box grew larger and is now divided into two compartments improving the practicality credentials of the model. The company also offers the option of a swiveling driver’s seat, making it much easier to enter and exit the vehicle.

Nissan’s Intelligent Key automatically locks and unlocks the car when the driver approaches, while the LED headlights are now a standard feature on all trims. Finally, the 360° Safety Assist ADAS suite improved its ability to automatically adapt the vehicle’s speed according to the circumstances.
As with its predecessor, the facelifted Note is exclusively available in hybrid form (e-Power), with a 1.2-liter three-cylinder petrol engine serving as a generator for single (FWD) or dual electric motors (AWD).

Pricing for the 2024 Nissan Note in Japan starts from ¥2,299,000 ($15,791) for the 2WD version and from ¥2,580,600 ($17,725) for the 4WD. Both numbers represent a mild increase compared to the existing model which is justified by the richer standard equipment. The first deliveries of the updated model in Japanese dealers are expected in late January 2024.
