Veni, Vidi, Vici or I came, I Saw, I Conquered, which is exactly what Nissan have done with this new Micra. With a fresh new look for spring 2017, the Micra has been revolutionised as I know it. Boasting a slick upgrade both inside and out, no longer is it left feeling a little left out the race but rather coming to challenge the leaders! Welcome to the 2017 new Nissan Micra, the fifth generation of Micra which has been classed as “Jewel-like” by Autocar, is now set to play the supermini’s cream of the crop at their own game. Personalisation options that have never been seen before on this model include – 10 sophisticated and intense exterior colours, additional exterior and interior options allow for the creation of 125 different variations, in essence you can add a bit of personality and style to your new Micra and you’ll be sure to turn heads and we have no doubt you’ll stand out from the crowd where ever you go Car Buyer describes it as “the most exciting version of the car ever” and I would have to agree. There have definitely been no corners cut when designing this new beauty, the sleek exterior flaunts distinctive sculpted lines, a floating roof and spoiler, V-shaped grille and not forgetting C-Pillar handles (basically they are hidden in the doors!) all to give a new sporty feel. No expense has been spared either on the interior and improved technology, all aspects have been thought about for you, the driver, to give you an exceptional enlivening driving experience. High quality soft touch materials, 5” touch display on the dashboard which controls everything from music to navigation, Bose stereo, including speakers in the driver’s headrest (on upgraded models) and 360-degree view system to take the hassle out of parking in those tight spots make driving this car a dream. Other features include;
- Apple play
- Advanced driver assist
- Lane departure warning
- Traffic sign and pedestrian recognition
- High beam assist
- Intelligent emergency braking
As with all the other Nissan Models, this will be available in the five grade levels.
Options include either a 0.9 litre turbo charged three-cylinder petrol engine or a 1.5 litre diesel four-cylinder engine, both with a 90HP. There is also talks of an entry-level version of the 1.0-litre petrol will come later, with 75bhp. Prices start from £11,995 for the entry level Visia model.
