Prices of the 2017 Nissan Micra are expected to be as low as Rs 6 lakh, and may go all the way up to Rs 9 lakh for the top-end variant.
The new Nissan Micra will be made available with a range of petrol and diesel mills with capacity from 1.0-litre to 1.6-litre.
January 12, 2017 – Production of the new Nissan Micra 2017 is underway in Europe. Interestingly, the Japanese carmaker has shifted the production hub of the hatchback from Chennai to Europe after seven years. This also makes the 2017 Micra first Nissan car to be produced at the brand’s alliance partner Renault’s Flins-based plant in France. The new-gen Micra had its global debut at the Paris Motor Show previous year. Reports suggest that the hatchback will go on sale in Europe early this year, and its India launch might happen towards the end of 2017.
One of the key highlights of the new Nissan Micra 2017 is its evolved design, which is inspired from the Sway concept. Designed to be a flagship model, the updated Micra carries a more radical design. In emerging markets, the hatchback’s new-gen model will retain the V-platform. While in Europe, it will get the new CMF platform which is being developed by Renault-Nissan Alliance. Read More – Nissan Kicks Compact SUV Is Coming To India
Previewed at the Paris Motor Show, the fifth-generation Micra will see a release in India towards the end of this year. Though, the carmaker hasn’t yet confirmed anything about this as of now.
|Base Model||Rs 6 lakh|
|Top Model||Rs 9 lakh|
Speculations suggest that the new Nissan Micra prices will be two-fold higher than what it is now. The reasons behind these assumptions are the new revolutionary design and comprehensive updates that will be made to the car. We expect its prices to fall between Rs 7 lakh – Rs 9 lakh (ex-showroom).
|Engine Options||Petrol & Diesel ranging from 0.9-litre to 1.6-litre|
|Transmission Options||5-speed Manual & CVT|
Power soures for the European-spec new Nissan Micra will include a 0.9-litre TCe turbocharged petrol motor along with the existing range of petrol and diesel powertrains. In global markets, the hatchback will be introduce with a range of petrol and diesel mills with capacity from 1.2-litre to 1.6-litre. Though, it is still to be known if these will come to India as well or not. Similar to the current-gen model, the Micra’s new model might come with both manual (5-speed) and a CVT automatic transmission options. Also See- Nissan Kicks Photo Story
Since the engine options and details are not confirmed, we can’t comment on the mileage figures of the car. However, it is said to be more fuel efficient than the existing model courtesy to its lightweight body-built.
Unlike the European-spec model that is based on the new CMF-B platform, the India-bound Nissan Micra will continue to sit on the current V-platform. The overall design and styling of the new-gen model is heavily adopted from the Nissan Sway concept that broke cover in 2015 at the Geneva Motor Show. The car will carry stylish curves with compact and futuristic design.
Up front of the car looks quite refreshing with elements like a new grille, a low slung bonnet, new headlamps clusters and a hefty bumper. The side and rear profiles, too, have been revised with a sloppier roofline, newly-designed hatch and new taillight design. The overall length, width and height of the European-spec model measure 3,995mm, 1,742mm and 1,452mm respectively. Its wheelbase stands at 2,525 mm.
No interior details of the hatchback have surfaced yet. But, we expect it to come with a new futuristic centre console, new instrument cluster, better interior trimming and leather covered seats. There are talks that hatchback’s new model will have more safety features to offer. Similar to the current model, the new-gen Micra will be capable to accommodate five occupants.
