The Nissan Micra just like its big brother, the Sunny is spacious and easy to drive. Having been launched a long time back however it was time for the Micra to undergo a facelift but as a bonus Nissan has thrown in a CVT automatic gearbox too! This bit of news is not new to you as we had earlier talked about this. While the inclusion of the automatic gearbox is a sign of the new trend in the Indian auto market, let us first take a detailed look at the new Micra. The Micra has gone through a complete style change and now sports a new look both on the inside and outside. One look at this new facelifted Micra and is clear that is much better looking now. The grille is more distinct and now bigger thus carrying more presence. What also can be seen from the picture is that the fog light design has been changed from a round one to a triangular one. It is quite clear that the Micra has left all of its ‘feminine’ design traits. Rear styling also looks good with new LED tail-lamps and rear bumper. On the inside too there has been an attempt to remove any "feminine" design details and the completely new centre-console now looks smart. The black look and the absense of those round air vents add some newness to the cabin and though elsewhere little has been changed, thanks to the new centre-console it looks different compared to the current Micra. The new audio system has USB/ MP3/ Aux-in and when it comes to the overall features list it has features like intelligent key, start stop button, steering mounted controls plus now you get Bluetooth and a reversing camera. The new Micra has the 76 PS and 64 PS petrol and diesel respectively. Both engines are nippy and decent fun with the diesel impressing with its low-end grunt. The 160 Nm of torque in the diesel means city performance is good. The petrol also feels light and fun in the city. The CVTgearbox feels smooth and effortless too! Fuel economy of the new Micra is an impressive 18.44 kmpl for manual petrol and a brilliant 23.08 for the diesel. There are three variants of the new Micra called XL, XV and XV premium. The new Micra petrol starts at Rs 4.8 lakhs with the CVT at Rs 6.4 lakhs (ex-showroom). The diesel starts at Rs 6 lakhs (ex-showroom). For a detailed analysis read below.
