The changes on the Micra are cosmetic and aren’t major. These are small add-ons on the car to make it look more stylish and fresh. There are some changes on the outside and there is a new colour on offer too. The new Micra doesn’t have multiple changes. The new Micra gets some more features now. There are some additional bells and whistles along with a few cosmetic changes on the inside.

Nissan Micra Look

The Nissan Micra was a cute-looking hatchback, and now it gets a more aggressive stance, as the new front of the vehicle resembles somewhat the Nissan Juke. We say so, either because it does look similar or the Juke-R is one of our favourites. The front grille gets the V-shaped chrome front grille with new headlamp design, like that of the 370Z. The honeycomb grille and the headlamp design melds well with the redesigned crown hood with prominent strakes. Even the front bumper has been reshaped and so are the fog lamps, which are now triangular in shape.

The silhouette of the Micra remains untouched, however a new design for the alloys has been incorporated. The boomerang has been retained on the roof. The rear too is the same, however it now gets a new set of tail lamps with LED cluster, than the conventional bulb. The changes are minimal and are effective, making the Micra distinguish from its previous styling.

Nissan Micra Comfort

Again, the changes on the inside are subtle but noticeable. The centre console has been revamped and it now it’s a piano black finish— which is glossy— and has rectangular air-con vents than the circular. The music system has been changed, and this one gets USB and even Bluetooth connectivity. Reverse parking camera and steering mounted audio controls are other new features.The material of the seats has been changed too and the same material is used on the door pad. Everything else remains untouched. The instrument cluster, the gear knob, the power window switches and even the design of the steering wheel. Check for Nissan Micra  in icadl2013.org.in

The range topping Micra, which is the XV Premium is available only in diesel version and it gets i-Key (keyless entry and push start and stop), electrically folding mirrors, steering mounted audio controls, alloy wheels, ABS, rear parking camera and even Bluetooth connectivity. The Micra is still a feature-rich product and good value for money too.

Nissan Micra Gearbox

The Nissan Micra specifications remain unchanged. That said, the hatchback continues to derive power from the 1.2-litre petrol engine with maximum power output of 76 bhp against peak torque of 104 Nm. Diesel variants, on the other hand, come equipped with a 1.5-litre oil burner with 63 bhp and 160 Nm peak torque. It gets a standard five-speed manual gearbox along with an optional CVT.Powered by the 1.2-litre petrol engine, the Nissan Micra mileage is rated at 19.34 km/l as per the tests done by the ARAI. The more frugal diesel-powered Micra, on the other hand, is claimed to return an impressive fuel economy of 23.08 km/l, which is around 4 km/l more than the petrol version.

Nissan Micra Rideing

Micra is a hatchback designed for daily city driving, hence its suspension has been tuned better ride. The suppleness of the ride is good as the dampers adsorb most of the road shocks and vibrations, even when driving on a bad or uneven road. Potholes are also well taken by these springs to keep the occupants comfortable.The handling of the Micra is decent. The alacrity of the chassis isn’t like that of its European competition, but it is definitely good for daily city driving. The steering wheel is light too and it does make it easy to drive in heavy traffic without any hesitation.

Nissan Micra Safety

The new Nissan Micra features ventilated disc brakes at the front and drum units at the back. Safety features on the Nissan Micra 2018 include standard dual frontal airbags, driver’s seat belt warning indicator, standard rear parking sensors and speed warning.

Nissan Micra Bottomline

The tweaks to 2018 Nissan Micra are strictly restricted to features update. While the dual airbags are now standard across the range, the ABS and EBD are missing in the base trim. Overall, it is now a better package than before.Micra gets some prominent changes and upgrades too. The added bells and whistles are now becoming the must-have features in sedan and we believe these features will soon trickle down into the hatchback segment. We expect a minor hike in the price with these new added brownies and the CVT will be about Rs 50,000 more than the Micra petrol manual.
