The Nissan Micra range has been expanded to include a new 84 kW engine and some more specification. Here's specification and pricing.
The all-new engine is a 1.0-litre turbocharged motor with 84 kW and 180 Nm, which brings some performance to the range. Currently, the Micra only offers a 1.0-litre engine with 66 kW. Available in 3 grades: Acenta Plus, Tekna and Tekna Plus, the Nissan Micra will hit showroom floors in November 2019.
The updated Nissan Micra comes standard with sport suspension, sport exhaust tail pipe fin, Smart (keyless) entry, push start button, rear parking sensors, automatic folding exterior mirrors, leather steering wheel & shift lever, Intelligent Around View Monitor, Moving Object Detection and blind spot warning. The Tekna model adds in LED headlights and front fog lights, automatic air conditioner and automatic headlight levelling, while the Tekna Plus has the ‘Invigorating Red’ interior leather heated seats and ‘Enigma Black’ exterior colour. The Tekna and Tekna Plus derivatives also come with a high-end Bose sound system.
Nissan is claiming this 84 kW Micra also features a 10 mm reduction in ride height and a sporty tune to the suspension to make it a bit more fun to drive.
