Nissan announces revised Micra

Published 04 June 2013

Nissan has given its Micra hatchback a comprehensive makeover. The revised car features updated exterior styling, improved interior quality and various bits of new equipment. The new model should be priced from around £9800 when it goes on sale in September.

The revised Micra gets a new front end with lights similar to those on the new Note, along with a grille like that seen on the Juke crossover. The tail lights now feature LEDs and there is a new rear bumper, plus new alloy wheel designs.

Inside there is a completely new centre console with new vents and there are new materials to lift the ambience of the cabin, including a new gear-knob trim and gloss black details. Top-of-the range Tekna models get suede-effect seat coverings with double stitching.

Every Micra now gets USB and aux audio connectivity and a 12V socket for charging gadgets. All but the basic Visia models get improved audio equipment with better dashboard integration, plus a new NissanConnect infotainment system is available with Google-linked sat nav.

The new model should be priced from around £9800 when it goes on sale in September. 

Two engines are offered – a 1.2-litre supercharged petrol with 98PS and CO2 emissions of 95g/km and a naturally-aspirated 1.2 with 80PS and 115g/km emissions. A CVT Automatic gearbox is optional, in place of the standard five-speed manual.

There are three trim levels – Visia, Accenta and Tekna. The former gets front electric windows, 14-inch steel wheels, aux and USB connectivity and safety gear including ABS and ESP. Moving up to Accenta gets you 15-inch steel wheels, a roof spoiler, climate control, front foglights, automatic wipers and headlights and Bluetooth connectivity.

To range-topper is Tekna, which features rear parking sensors and a sensor to measure the size of parking spaces, plus keyless entry and start, 16-inch alloy wheels and auto-folding door mirrors. Additionally, buyers can choose from a wider range of customisation options than they could previously.
