The 2022 Nissan Note Aura Nismo has been made even more eye-catching with the introduction of two new aerodynamic elements.
New for the front of the Note Aura Nismo is a black painted chin spoiler that attaches to the standard splitter that’s painted bright red. The car manufacturer suggests this small spoiler “enhances the downforce” but it is likely to such a small extent that you wouldn’t even notice. This chin spoiler will set back owners 30,800 Yen or $240.
The second new piece for the hatchback is slightly more noteworthy and takes the form of an angular rear spoiler that sits in place of the standard one. This spoiler is also said to benefit aerodynamics and certainly gives the Note Aura a more menacing look when viewed from the rear. It kicks up aggressively and houses a third brake light. This spoiler has been priced at 71,500 yen ($558).
The Note Aura Nismo was unveiled in August of last year. It takes design inspiration from Nissan’s Formula E race car and sports 17-inch wheels, red mirror caps, red side skirts, and an aggressive rear fascia with a distinctive bumper and diffuser. A number of interior upgrades have also been made to the car, including the fitment of bucket seats with fabric and synthetic leather complete with an embroidered Nismo logo.
No modifications have been made to the vehicle’s powertrain. As such, it is driven by a 1.2-liter three-cylinder that acts as a generator and is supplemented by a pair of electric motors. The car is good for 134 hp and 221 lb-ft (300 Nm) of torque and can be driven in either Normal, Eco, or Nismo mode.
