Nissan Note Aura Launched In Japan
We will never get this Note Aura in Malaysia.
This is another great premium compact car that we will never get in Malaysia as ‘customized tax incentives’ and a flip-flop National Automotive Policy (NAP) prevents Japanese car manufacturers and even the Korean car manufacturers from taking the Malaysian automotive sector as a serious market place.
In the compact segment in Malaysia, only ‘national cars’ and a small select number of vehicles manage to survive against tough fickle incentives and wavering directives from an automotive agency that works on their self interest more than anything else.
This is why quality compact cars like this all new Nissan Note Aura will never reach middle class Malaysians.
Meanwhile, lets take a closer look at this brand new premium Nissan. Launched in Japan just this June 2021 the Note Aura comes exclusively with Nissan’s e-POWER electrified powertrain, a key part of the company’s electrification strategy under the Nissan NEXT global business transformation plan.
This all-new vehicle inherits the comfort and advanced safety technologies of the Note e-POWER launched last year which is another great compact family car that ETCM will not bring in to sell due to its high asking price and with unsure customized incentives.
PRESS RELEASE: Intrinsic qualities appeal to all on board
With a simple, beautiful design that goes beyond the compact-car norm, this all new 2021 model Note Aura aims to exceed the expectations of all occupants.
The exterior features an elaborately sculpted front grille, and an elongated, curved roofline. The rear fenders and new rear bumper convey a wide stance and low center of gravity, giving the vehicle a robust presence. The LED combination lamps that illuminate as a beam of light across the rear of the vehicle create an advanced and individualistic impression.
The model comes with 14 available body color variations, with five two-tone combinations, including Garnet Red with Super Black, and Midnight Black with Sunrise Copper.
The interior Zero Gravity seats come in two variations; Herringbone patterned tweed-like fabric combined with synthetic leather or high-quality genuine leather with specially designed pleating to provide seating grip. The lower instrument panel and center console features a wood-grain finish while door trims, front armrests and the instrument panel are all finished in tweed-like fabric.
A premium audio system has been developed together with Bose1 for a high-quality onboard experience. The optional Bose Personal Plus sound system speakers are placed in the front passenger headrests, providing a premium acoustic experience with the depth and breadth of sound unique to Bose1 and its advanced signal processing technology.
Noise dampening in the roof, doors, and front door glass help ensure a high level of cabin quietness and comfort on the road.
Beauty with highly sophisticated functionality
The front facia V-motion lighting combines signature LED position lamps, accent lamps, and sequential turn lamps, giving a premium look. The slim and sleek headlamps also have adaptive LED functions, combining both quality and functionality.
The 17-inch lightweight aluminum wheels feature gunmetal resin inserts that create a stylish, aerodynamic design.
Advanced technologies bring an enhanced car life to both drivers and passengers
For the Note Aura, the second-generation e-POWER electrified powertrain has been enhanced to provide maximum system output of 100 kW and maximum torque of 300 Nm. This delivers more powerful acceleration and an even smoother driving experience from the 100% electric motor driven system.
