Nissan has given the Note hatchback a visual tweak for the European market with, as the Black Edition name implies, a host of black exterior accents to set it apart from the rest of its range. The black accents are part of a Dynamic Styling Pack which also adds a black roof-mounted spoiler, while specific to this Black Edition are a set of black 16-inch wheels.

The Black Edition is based on the mid-range, Acenta trim level, and can be specified with a variety of colours and optional equipment. Additional cost options also available to buyers include the NissanConnect touchscreen infotainment system, the i-Key remote access, as well as an Auto Pack which brings automatic headlights, fog lamps, rain sensor, and automatic air conditioning.


For the European market, two engine options are available: a 1.5 litre, 90 hp turbodiesel and a 1.2 litre petrol engine with either 80 hp or 98 hp. The more powerful petrol engine can be specified with a a continuously variable transmission at an extra cost, as an option in addition to the standard manual gearbox for the Nissan Note.

The Nissan Note Black Edition is already available to order as a limited run model, although the exact number of units to be released hasn’t been specified. As for Malaysia, we’ve seen a Nissan Note with trade plates driving around in Malaysia, and ETCM showcased the Nissan Note at the KLIMS13 show, but there hasn’t been any more news since on the likelihood of an official Malaysian market introduction.
