Nissan Micra face-lift to launch on July 3

To be launched on July 3, the refreshed Nissan Micra is a more contemporary looking car with better interiors

The Nissan Micra has always been a good all-round urban commuter, but its somewhat cutesy styling and dull interiors meant that it was overlooked by potential male buyers rather easily.


Having realised this, Nissan has revealed a face-lifted version that will be launched soon. The refreshed Micra looks more contemporary from the front and the interiors are a much livelier place to be in. 


Exterior styling changes on the face-lifted Nissan Micra include new angular headlamps that resembles Nissan’s current family design theme, a wider front grille with a V-shaped chrome insert, a new front bumper that gets chrome lining on the lower air-dam along with triangular recesses at either end to house the fog lamps. Changes at the rear include new LED tail lights and the lower portion of the hatch lid has been restyled as well, the side profile remains the same with the exception of the new alloy wheels that will be available on higher-end trims. 


The interiors of the refreshed Nissan Micra have been spruced up with brighter coloured beige fabric and plastics and a piano black panel on the centre console that houses the restyled air vents and a new double din stereo as well as the circular air-con controls.

Under the hood, the refreshed Nissan Micra continues to be powered by the same 1.2-litre petrol engine developing 75PS of power and 104Nm of torque, while the 1.5-litre diesel motor churns out 65PS of power and 160Nm of torque. However, the driveability of the diesel engine has been improved with less turbo lag. There is also a new automatic version of the Micra that will be available only on the petrol model. 


Expect the new Micra to cost marginally more than the outgoing model when it is launched on July 3, but the refreshed styling and better interiors should justify the extra dough.
