How would you translate a flipbook animation from paper to the Internet? The Nissan Note has an idea. To promote features like the new hatchback's's fuel economy, roominess, and bird's-eye view camera, the car's Japanese website has a four-page digital flipbook that animates when you scroll down (try it now to see what we mean above).
The Note, along with its new "Squash Line," is an important car for Nissan, demonstrated by the big show the company put on for the little B-segment hatchback. Having done well with the Note so far since its introduction as a 2006 model, the revamped global five-door has taken the lead in providing design cues for other models, like our Versa hatchback.
The second-generation Nissan Note mini MPV debuted in Japan today, featuring a more dramatic design. Nissan is calling the car's deep character line a "Squash Line," perhaps because it looks like someone squashed the side of the car with the prow of a kayak.
