Nissan Micra Active Launches in SA (2017) Specs & Pricing

Nissan has introduced the Micra Active in South Africa with interior and exterior styling upgrades. Here's what the Micra Active has to offer...

The current Nissan Micra is long in the tooth now and an all-new Micra was shown at the Paris Motor Show last year and will arrive on local shores in March 2018, so there is much to look forward to from the all-new Micra. In the meantime, Nissan has spruced up the current model and it’s now called the Micra Active and it comes with enhanced exterior styling and higher levels of interior specification, offering buyers more value-for-money.

The Nissan Micra Active is powered by a 1.2-litre petrol engine with 56 kW and 104 Nm of torque and mated to a 5-speed manual transmission.

“One of our priorities at Nissan is to build vehicles that offer attractive features at a competitive price. We believe the new Nissan Micra Active with its significant enhancements sets new standards in the Lower B Hatchback segment” says Nissan Group of Africa Managing Director of Marketing and Sales, Xavier Gobille.

What’s changed

The grille of the Micra Active now has a chrome V-motion motif, much like other Nissan products. 

The grille, bonnet, front fenders, headlamps and both bumpers have been updated. The Nissan badge now sits in a chrome-extended V-shaped motif familiar from other Nissan models. On the inside, the Micra Active benefits from updated upholstery featuring a new design. The centre console takes on a new look as does the instrument cluster.

Key features include manual air conditioning, front electric windows, Bluetooth and audio streaming, steering adjustment, folding rear seats and a 12V socket.

Safety features include ABS with EBD, brake assist, 2 airbags and ISOFIX child seat mounts.

Optional features

An infotainment touchscreen with navigation is offered at no additional cost for the launch period. Better get down to your nearest Nissan dealer then...

Buyers can equip the Micra Active with a reverse camera, tyre pressure monitoring system and rear parking sensors.

The first Micra Actives sold in South Africa will be equipped with an optional touchscreen infotainment system with navigation at no additional cost to the customer for the duration of the launch period. The navigation operates TomTom mapping with live traffic information and Bluetooth hands-free music streaming, USB port and an iPod/iPhone-capable built-in music hard drive is also included.

A Trendsetter Pack can be fitted to the Micra Active and this pack includes features such as smoky black alloy wheels, chrome exhaust finish, rear spoiler and mudguards.
