Nissan Note n-tec 1.2 manual road test report and review

Nissan Note n-tec 1.2 manual road test report and review

IN this stylish n-tec specification which adds lots of extra trim, styling flourishes and safety equipment this version of the Note will strike a chord with many buyers.
Its attractive Ink Blue paintwork may well seal the deal, but the 1.2-litre three-pot with just 59PS won’t be everybody’s cup of tea.

Nissan Qashqai n-tec+ 1.2 DIG-T 115PS road test report and review

Nissan Qashqai n-tec+ 1.2 DIG-T 115PS road test report and review

THE Nissan Qashqai has been around since 2007 in its various guises and while always having been a worthy presence in the mid-sized SUV market, I’ve always thought it to be a bit ordinary – it’s never really stood out.
