The Nissan Note Is Japan Car Of The Year 2021-2022


The Nissan Note and its more upscale sister model, the Note Aura has been named as the 2021-2022 Japan Car of the Year.

Launched in December 2020, the all-new Note has won over many customers with its e-Power electrified powertrain, and superior quietness. Owners also highly rate the innovative design of the Note’s exterior and interior, which evoke a new age of electrified vehicles.

Meanwhile, the premium compact new Note Aura, launched in August, has also received high praise for its e-Power powertrain, sophisticated interior, and above-class level of quietness. It is also the first car in Japan to feature a Bose Personal Plus sound system.

The Note/Note Aura handily beat other competitors including the Subaru BRZ/Toyota 86 and the Honda Vezel/HR-V (see full breakdown below). This is the fifth time Nissan has won the award.

The Volkswagen Golf 8 is Japan’s Import Car of the Year for 2021-2022.

In the special awards categories, the BMW 4 Series received the Design of the Year trophy, the Corvette captured the Performance award, the Outlander PHEV picked up the Technology of the year trophy and the Honda N-One captured the ‘K-car’ (660cc) minicar category.
