2017 Nissan Nissan Micra spied

The upcoming Nissan Micra, which is due for the international markets, will be based on Renault-Nissan Alliance’s CMF platform. The same architecture will also underpin the 2017 Nissan Juke and the 2017 Dacia Duster. The car will come with upmarket quality and fit & finish as the automaker is expected to shift the production of the hatch from its Chennai plant in India to Flins in France. The Flins facility also manufactures Renault Clio and Renault Zoe.

No mechanical details are out yet, but it is expected that the Japanese car manufacturer will offer the 2017 Nissan Micra with a detuned version of the 0.9-litre, Tce, turbocharged, petrol engine for the European markets. The motor will come paired to both manual and automatic transmission.
