2016 Paris Motor Show – 2017 Nissan Micra
The fifth-generation Micra showed up in Paris in its effort to impress the European customers. The 2017 Nissan Micra shows off somewhat of a dramatic styling, advanced turbocharged engines, agile chassis and a wide array of safety features. Could you believe the model was first introduced over 30 years ago? The new and improved Micra is reminiscent of the Sway Concept, with design cues including the distinctive V-motion grille, boomerang-shaped lights and the floating roof. Please note the hidden rear door handles, as well as the spoiler integrated into the extended roof line.
On the inside, the Nissan Micra features a lower driving position, alongside greater seat adjustment, a fully adjustable steering wheel and a gliding-wing shaped dashboard. Safety features include Lane Departure Prevention, Intelligent Emergency Braking with pedestrian recognition, as well as Intelligent Around View Monitor, Traffic Sign Recognition, High Beam Assist and Blind Spot Warning. No need to worry!
A 7-inch full color central display will provide access to the Sat-Nav, mobile phone, downloadable apps, Siri voice control via Apple CarPlay and the audio system – there is no way you will get bored, especially considering the exclusive all-new six-speaker Bose Personal sound system.
The new Micra is quiet, thanks to improved noise insulation and optimization of the car’s aerodynamic performance. The fresh brushless electric power steering system plus Active Ride Control add to the overall comfort, while the Active Trace Control help reduce understeer and sharpen handling. Starting next March, European fans may get their hands on a 0.9-liter turbocharged three-cylinder petrol or 1.5-liter diesel version, both of which benefit from 90 hp – a naturally aspirated 73 hp 1.0-liter petrol unit will soon follow,
