Exteriors and Interiors

What you will immediately like about Nissan Micra are those well-designed, interiors and a cheeky styling. The oval and rounded theme continues in the inferiors. There are a cluster of buttons on the central console, oval speedometer, round steering boss and round vents. The Nissan designers have clearly kept away from that edgy styling because as per their observation and studies, sharp lines and creases lend a very fragile image to the vehicle. This is why you will find the new Micra in a very robust and a smooth rounded shape. Among the gizmos, you get electric folding mirrors, start / stop button, climate control, keyless entry etc. Micra’s DNA has evolved to that high-mounted light pods and the two-part grille that looks attractive.

Engine and Performance

Nissan Micra review shows that this is a hatchback with a difference. It gets its power by a 1198ccc three-cylinder motor. Manufactured on a new ‘V’ platform, the new design has been made to keep the financial sense in the surfacing markets. The V-platform is just perfect for rough roads and engineered for complete comfort. The diesel engine is fuel efficient and offers a great driving experience. Suspension is tuned for comfort and a superior ride quality. However, you may not be too impressed with the three-cylinder petrol engine that seems dull to drive. The ABS brakes would be missing in the diesel Micra. You feel more power in the car due to the very light kerb weight. Nissan has engineered a car with fewer parts so as to keep the weight down.
