Nissan will launch its range topping DIG-S petrol engine for the Note at the Geneva Motor Show. The 3-cylinder 1.2-liter DIG-S direct-injected petrol engine features a supercharger which produces 97hp ad 147Nm of torque. The supercharged unit returns 4.3 l/100 km (54.7 mpg US) and emits 99 g of CO2 per kilometer.

Nissan says that the engine will adopt the Miller Cycle combustion process to boost efficiency and it is combined with a higher compression ratio with the supercharger boosting output at low engine speeds. The engine is mated to a standard five-speed manual transmission with an XTronic CVT gearbox available as well.

As the 80PS 1.2-liter unit and the 90PS 1.5-liter diesel, the 1.2-liter DIG-S engine is fitted with Nissan’s Idle Stop/Start system.

Nissan will also reveal the Dynamic Styling Pack (DSP) for the Note and it is similar to the SR package and includes a factory fitted option that enhances the look of the car by adding two-tone diamond cut 16 inch alloy wheels, rear privacy glass, carbon look rear bumper, neat rear roof spoiler, side sills and a more aggressive front bumper with a glossy black grille.
