What is it?
The New Nissan Micra is a fashionable, practical, supermini class hatchback that stands out from the crowd thanks to 6 key strengths.
1: Bold design
The Micra has bold styling that guarantees it gets noticed, hints at its confident handling and creates the right impression for family, friends and colleagues. Highlights include the floating roof that seems to hover unsupported at its rear. The black, contrasting, colour of the rear pillars creates this striking look.
Hidden rear door handles complement the floating roof, help the bodywork look smooth and create a talking point. The front is striking, too. The LED lights and v-motion grille ensure it. At the rear, “boomerang” lights flow onto the car’s sides to further optimise its look. The overall impression is modern, fun and young.
2: Personalised design
The Nissan Micra can be personalised to suit your personality, style and preference. An Interior Pack adds contrasting colour throughout the cabin, for starters. The seats, dashboard and door cards in particular benefit from such treatment. Choose: blue, orange or red. The exterior can be tweaked to your preference, too.
An Exterior Pack adds colour to the mirrors, doors and various other parts. Pick: blue, orange, black or chrome. And there is more. An Exterior Pack Plus add such colour to the wheels. Want more still? An Exterior Pack Ultimate adds in-your-face decals to the bodywork (stickers). Choose: black, black and orange or chrome.
3: Premium interior design
The Micra has a spacious, practical and stylish interior. The manufacturer says rear passengers have “top class shoulder and knee room”, for starters. Handy for taking friends to dinner. The 300-litre boot ensures there is also room for shopping trips. The soft touch materials and uncluttered ambience further optimise its feel.
The New Nissan Micra infotainment system has a wide range of features to keep you entertained, connected to family, and relaxed on the open road. Control it via the large, colour, touchscreen interface in the centre of the dashboard. The key features include:
- Satellite navigation
- Digital radio
- USB music streaming
- Apple CarPlay compatible
- Facebook, Twitter and TripAdvisor compatible
5: Advanced technology
The 2018 Nissan Micra has further features to make life safe, convenient and comfortable. Highlights include the Around View Monitor that provides a 360 degree, aerial, view of the surroundings to make low speed manoeuvres easy. Images come via a camera on each side plus the colour screen. Other features include:
- Hill-Start Assist (keeps the brakes on while you move your foot to the throttle pedal to prevent the car rolling back)
- Intelligent Emergency Braking (brakes if you fail to react to a hazard ahead to avoid a collision or mitigate its severity)
- Intelligent Lane Intervention (steers back into the correct lane if the vehicle wanders)
- Blind Spot Warning (confirms that a nearby, adjacent, vehicle following in close proximity is hidden behind a rear pillar)
- Trace Control (brakes specific wheels to maintain the optimal line through corners if you enter too quickly)
- Fuel efficient engines (average up to 88.3mpg)
- Environmentally efficient engines (emissions from 85g/km)
6: Bose Personal Sound System
The BOSE Personal Sound System “gives you a premium audio experience without compromising your cabin storage space”, the manufacture suggested. It incorporates 6 speakers including 2 within the driver’s headrest. Its purpose is to create an immersive, 360 degree, ambience so you only hear music at its best.
