The brand new Nissan Micra will be launched this summer with just one engine new 1.2 litre three cylinder petrol in naturally aspirated or supercharged form. The engine will produce 79bhp and have co2 emissions of 115g/km. A direct injection and supercharged variant will follow with 97bhp and 105lb ft, and together with stop/start tech it’ll only emit 95g/km. Both engines will be offered with either a five-speed manual or a new CVT ‘box.
This new Nissan Micra has an options list that include a touch screen sat nav system and a panoramic glass roof along with a ‘parking space measurement’ (PSM) device that has three settings (amateur, normal and expert).
Inside the Nissan Micra the rear leg and headroom are generous and the boot is a respectable size, storage space elsewhere in the cabin is generous with door pockets, glovebox and cubbies in plentiful supply.
Nissan designed the Nissan Micra to be one of the safest small cars around, with ESP stability control fitted as standard alongside ABS brakes and six airbags. Seatbelt pretensioners also make the equipment list on all models, while Nissan’s V-platform architecture offers top level impact protection.
