Nissan has upgraded its hatchback model Micra in UK with a round of changes, as well as a new look front and rear. New Micra has been given a substantial interior makeover and also there is new technology, a new centre console, new trim and new finishing touches.
All-new communication centre with the latest state-of-the-art touchscreen navigation system now with a larger screen. On the exterior, additions include two bold new colors and new 15-inch and 16-inch alloy wheels. Its features are its highly efficient direct injection gasoline-supercharged (DIG-S) petrol engine, its innovative, accessible and genuinely helpful Parking Slot Measurement and I-Key which delivers not just keyless entry but also keyless engine start.
But perhaps the biggest innovation is under the bonnet where one of the most efficient petrol engines in the world can be found, Nissan’s latest three-cylinder 1.2-litre direct injection gasoline supercharged (DIG-S) unit. The range-topping DIG-S develops 98PS to provide exceptional performance and refinement with diesel-rivalling economy (68.9mpg combined) and emissions from just 95g/km. DIG-S engines also feature automatic stop/start when the car is stationary improving fuel economy by around four per cent.
The entry-level 1.2-litre unit develops 80PS for lively performance and emissions from 115g/km. New Micra is front-wheel drive with a slick five-speed manual gearbox as standard or optionally the latest generation CVT.
There are three models in New Micra line-up starting with the entry-level Visia. Standard equipment includes remote central locking, front power windows, electric power steering, 14-inch wheels, Radio & CD player with Aux & USB plus a full complement of safety equipment including driver and front passenger airbags, side airbags and curtain bags, ABS and ESP.
Mid-range Acenta adds chrome accents, body colour door mirrors and handles, 15-inch wheels, roof spoiler, automatic climate control, front fog lamps, driver’s armrest, leather covered steering wheel, Bluetooth connectivity plus automatic control for the headlamps and wipers.
Top Tekna versions add automatic air conditioning, NissanConnect, rear parking sensors, Parking Slot Measurement, 16-inch alloy wheels, suede-like seat fabric, automatic folding door mirrors and Intelligent Key with engine start button.
A panoramic glass roof is available as on option on Tekna grade.
A wide range of personalisation options is also being introduced from Acenta grade, so owners can now specify their preferred colour of wheel centre caps and door mirrors on the exterior, while inside they can personalise their gear knob, air-vent, gear stick surround and velour mats to make their car unique.
