Is it me or does the engine note sound coarse? I thought the Q was supposed to be refined? It is quite loud when accelerating with (I think) an unpleasant note. Does anyone else find this?

I don't find it overly unpleasant but then it's not a pleasurable engine note either.

I think considering the revs involved, it's not that obtrusive at motorway speeds.

Yes, it's pretty good at speed considering the revs. I would have loved a 6 speed box but considering the size of engine it sits just right at 70 with about 3200 rpm. High, but in the torque curve where it seems to take off. With a 6 speed I think there would be too much down-changing.
My beef is the sound of the engine when pulling away, particularly on a hill start. To my ear it could sound nicer.

Agree with you engine does seem noisy especially at 70 but if u go to 75ish noise
Gets quiter. The noise sounds as if the engine has worn out I mean bearings noisy.

It's just that I wish Nissan had done a better job in muting the engine.

The 1.6 Dig T petrol engine is much quieter. I had a 1.6 petrol before changing over and I agree that the engine was quite course. The acceleration on the new car is really remarkable owing to the turbo.
