About Nissan Micra

The Micra is Nissan’s entry-level offering in India. With a starting price of Rs 5.95 lakh (ex-showroom New Delhi), it competes against various other hatchbacks including the Maruti Suzuki Swift and Baleno apart from popular hatchbacks such as the Tata Tiago and the Hyundai Grand i10. The Micra is offered with a choice of two engines - a 1.2-litre petrol or a 1.5-litre diesel. Although the diesel engine is fairly powerful, the Micra is getting a bit long in the tooth, especially when you consider most of its major rivals are either brand new or have received significant updates in the last couple of years.

Nissan Micra Overview

Nissan has updated its Micra hatchback just in time for the festive season. Updates aren’t drastic, and are limited to a few feature additions here and there. Dual airbags are now offered as standard across the range. Other updates include the addition of turn indicators on the wing mirrors, a 6.2-inch touchscreen, rear parking sensors and a reversing camera. Expectedly, engine options remain unchanged - there’s a 1.2-litre petrol (77PS/104Nm) and a 1.5-litre diesel (68PS / 160Nm) to choose from. The petrol is offered solely with a CVT, whereas the diesel is available with a 5-speed manual only.

Q. Can I install CNG kit to Nissan Micra...??
  • Yes you can...almost all petrol engines are compatible with cng...i believe that nissan is not offering a factory fitted one which was the best choice...but any good branded after market kit installed by an experienced technician would be fine...cng powered vehicles are greener and offer better engine life on the loss of engine power... initial startup of engine should be with petrol and after a 2km drive you could shift to cng...same repeated in opposite manner when switching off...
  • Worst experience, this is three cylinder vehicle, CNG fitting is not a good idea, two years after fitting CNG this car will be zero value, my personal experience.
  • Which CNG kit you have installed in micra, which varient it is

Q. Which is better AMT OR CVT. When I search for best automatic car in India, Nissan micra with CVT is not listed. Why? Is it a good car to buy?
  • AMT is a technology, which takes away clutch operation from the car driver. Essentially it's the same manual gearbox requiring same pattern of servicing. Manual selection of gears are provisioned here.CVT doesn't have clutch and couples transmission & engine with torque converter. This torque converter is basically a fluid transmission and avoids engine stalling . Also, it provides few torque for creep motion and provides a good anti roll back action during uphill start. There is no j**k like thing and overspeeding of engine.Nissan offers CVT in Datsun GO, GO+ and Micra (not Micra active) with 1.2L petrol engine. It's one of the lowest price package of CVT in the market.
  • CVT is better. Nissan discontinued Micra in 2020
