The 5th Generation Nissan Micra is set to cause a major stir in the supermini category when it goes on sale at the start of 2017. Officially unveiled at the Paris Motor Show, the new Micra has been completely redesigned in terms of style, features and technology.
Directly inspired by sports cars, the new Micra features sculpted lines, sporty porportions and a sporty body. In order to compete at the top of Europe's B-segment market, the 5th Gen Micra has a number of premium new features including signature LED daytime running lights, modern rectangular front fog lamps, hidden rear door handles and a floating roof and roof spoiler.
The Micra's new body is significantly longer, wider and lower than its outgoing predecessor. The windscreen is steeply raked with shoulder lines that stretch from the bonnet, passed the windscreen, down the wings and finally upwards to the back doors. The production of the Micra will be moved from India to share a production line with the Renault Clio thanks to the Renault-Nissan alliance.
The all-new Nissan Micra allows you to choose from over 100 different style configurations so that you can make a statement with your car by breaking away from convention and reflecting your individuality.
Customers have the choice of seven different body colours from Energy Orange to Power Blue. Once you have decided which body colour reflects your personality best you can customise it with a number of design packs.
The Exterior Pack adds colour to your door mirrors, side moulding and front and rear bumper finished. You can also add the Exterior Pack Plus which adds coloured inserts into your 17" alloy wheels. Finally, the Exterior Pack ULTIMATE adds a tailor-made contrasting accent.
Customisation is not just reserved for the exterior of the new Nissan Micra. You can choose from the exclusive selection of colour tones to be added to your seats, dashboard and panels.
The new exterior design of the Micra certianly gives it a sportier feel which is enhanced thanks to the lower and sportier driving position. Nissan have positioned the seat, pedals and control in such a way that is set to improve driver involvement.
Just because the design is sporty, doesn't mean that your drive won't be comfortable. You can optimise your driving position and sit comfortably in the ergonomic anti-fatique seats. The interior is filled with high quality soft touch materials complimented by ambient lighting and a smartly grouped set of controls that puts convenience at your fingertips.
The all-new Nissan Micra is brimming with technology to make your journey easier, safer and more pleasurable. The 7" anti-glare touch screen is fitted with NissanConnect which is smarter, safer and easy to use. This infotainment system houses all of your audio and navigation needs as well as providing hands-free communication options and in-vehicle apps.
Using Apple CarPlay you can just plug in your Apple smartphone and access your music, messages and favourite apps on your NissanConnect display. Listening to your favourite music has never been as much fun as it is in the new Micra thanks to its all-new Bose audio system. Featuring six speakers with two embedded in the driver's headrest, this system is an all-new Nissan Micra exclusive!
