Face lifted Nissan Micra to be launched for the Indian market tomorrow

Face lifted Nissan Micra to be launched for the Indian market tomorrow

Nissan is all set to launch the face lifted Micra hatchback for the Indian market at an event in Mumbai tomorrow. The facelifted Micra was first launched in Thailand in March and has since been seen testing on Indian roads. The cars get a number of cosmetic changes both inside and outside. It will now be offered in an automatic variant also as well as a low cost model that is slated to be launched a few months later.  

The design changes have given the car a new and refreshed look despite retaining the same overall design.  The rounded edges have given way for straighter lines. The front grille now has a honeycomb design and features a Nissan logo surrounded a V-shaped trough. Nissan has now sculpted the front bumper with new fog lamps and redesigned air dams. At the rear, the hatchback features LED tail lamps and a refreshed bumper. The Micra sits on a new set of 15 inch alloy wheels. 

Inside, the changes include a refreshed, glossy black centre console with silver accents.  The AC vents are also redesigned to a rectangular shape. New plastics and shades of interiors also make their way into the new Micra.

Under the hood, the Micra will continue to be powered by the 1.2-litre petrol that produces 75PS and 104Nm of torque and the 1.5-litre oil burner that produces 65PS and 160Nm of torque. Power is transmitted to the front wheels via a five-speed manual. Nissan will now also launch an automatic version of the Micra that will be powered by 1.2-litre petrol but has been mated to the Japanese automaker’s Xtronic CVT gearbox.

The launch of the Ford EcoSport and its incredible price is something that Nissan will have to seriously consider if it wants to sell the facelifted Micra in good numbers. The Nissan Micra also competes with the Hyundai i20, Honda Brio, Tata Indica Vista and the Volkswagen Polo.
