Hot on the heels of its Paris reveal, the all new Nissan Micra will be priced from £11,995 to £17,295. Five familiar grade levels will be available, comprising Visia, Visia+, Acenta, N-Connecta and Tekna.
Nissan has designed and developed its new Micra specifically for the EU – the world’s largest B-segment hatchback market.
Full range pricing, as well as specifications and options for the new Micra will be announced in mid-December when pre-orders open in the UK, ahead of the model’s 2017 arrival.
The new Micra is uninhibitedly styled to turn heads. It is lower, wider and longer than its predecessor and its chiselled exterior offers considerably more space inside. Now riding on an agile, re-engineered chassis the new Micra comes with a full complement of safety kit and connective tech.
It has been purposely designed to be much larger than its predecessor due to the gap that will be created by the departing Note from the EU market, the production of which will cease in early 2017.
At its early-2017 launch, the new Micra will be offered with a 0.9-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine or a 1.5-litre diesel, both developing 90hp. A naturally aspirated 73hp 1.0-litre petrol engine will join the range soon after.
A range of options will include keyless entry, engine start/stop button, heated front seats and a specially developed Bose sound system with Bose ‘UltraNearfield’ speakers, combined with Bose ‘PersonalSpace’ virtual audio technology, built into the driver seat headrest.
The new Nissan Micra targets a younger demographic with ten new paint colours, including solid, metallic and pearlescent paint options.
With ‘personalisation’ the current industry buzzword (and to heck with residual car values), buyers will be able to customise their cars with a range of exterior and interior personalisation packs including contrast-colour cabin and body features, leather trim, 17 inch alloys with colour detailing and stylish body decals.
