The Mirca.........compact, affordable and “out-there”.

Now it seems it’s widening its appeal with no-fewer than three new powertrain choices.

So what’s new? An all-new upgraded and more efficient turbo-charged petrol engine with “world-first” technology, plus, the debut of an Xtronic automatic linked to the same engine. There is also the arrival of a more powerful “warm hatch” flagship powertrain with lowered ride height, revised suspension and sharper steering. In addition, Nissan has also launched an all-new grade, the Micra N-Sport, which delivers an exclusive design upgrade both inside and outside the vehicle.

As well as delivering “more Micra” than ever before, each new version offers improved powertrain refinement and response on all road surfaces and in all driving conditions.

Helen Perry, General Manager, small cars, Nissan Europe, said “ with a greater focus on efficiency and performance, these new models further broaden the appeal of the Nissan Micra. We are now in a position to better meet the needs of Europe’s compact hatchback customers.”

The three new powertrains have been developed through the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance. By using the strength and resources of the alliance, Nissan can deliver synergies which push the boundaries of what is possible from a three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine. Each offers the highest levels of performance and refinement to customers whilst meeting the strictest standards of reliability. All this plus the fact that it continues to reduce CO2 emissions.

There has clearly never been a better time to take advantage of what a Micra can deliver.
