The 2017 Nissan Micra/March was unveiled at the 2016 Paris Motor Show last month, and weeks later, live images from Autovisie show the all-new model in daylight. The Euro-spec fifth-gen Nissan Micra will officially go on sale by March 2017. The all-new Euro-spec Micra will be made in Flins, France.
The fifth-gen Nissan Micra makes a big statement with a revolutionary makeover. Derived from the Nissan Sway Concept, the new generation model measures 3,995 mm in length, 1,742 mm in width, 1,452 mm in height, and has a wheelbase of 2,525 mm. Compared to the outgoing Euro-spec model, it is 170 mm longer, 77 mm wider and 69 mm shorter, and has a 75 mm longer wheelbase.
The 2017 Nissan Micra will be available with a 90 hp 0.9-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine and a 90 hp 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine initially. A 73 hp 1.0-litre naturally aspirated three-cylinder petrol engine will be introduced soon after the car’s launch. A 5-speed manual transmission will be offered initially.
LED signature lights, 17-inch alloy wheels, hidden rear door handles, flat-bottom steering wheel, LED ambient lighting, 7.0-inch touch-screen infotainment system with satellite navigation and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration compatibility, 6-speaker BOSE PERSONAL audio system and over 125 different available exterior and interior customization options are some of the highlights of the all-new 2017 Nissan Micra.
While Gandhara Nissan is stretching its legs to resume local production of its automobiles, we have reports regarding launch of Datsun Go and Go+ and a possible re-launch of the N16 Sunny, it’s too early to expect them to launch the all-new March/ Micra here. However the car with its striking appearance can give the likes of Vitz/ Swift a run for their money.
