The Nissan Micra is a well-known model which has helped the company reach heights and witness amazing sales.
The company is now ready to make some drastic changes to the car in the 2017 edition.
Designed to be a strong competent for the Ford Fiesta, the new 2017 Nissan Micra was spotted and the spy shots confirmed that the automobile brand is going for something radical. The car was heavily wrapped in camouflage but we could still make out the basic design. The production version of the model is scheduled to get launched at the Paris motor show this year. The existing Micra is exceptionally old because Nissan has been using the same platform for more than 13 years. The chassis has started showing its age, demanding a major revamp which is what the brand is doing now.
Being an outdated model, Micra has lost to many of its competitors because it looks old and doesn’t perform as intended. Nissan has adopted the new CMF-B platform specifically designed for small cars by Renault. The exterior design is similar to the Sway concept model showcased at the auto expo last year while other parts of the car are inspired by the Juke and the front end is angular. In short, the 2017 Nissan Micra is a mix of everything we have seen so far combined with many new cues the design team has picked up.
Compared to the outgoing model, the new Nissan Micra is longer, has a lower base and wider giving ample space for the passengers onboard. If we are to go by the prototype spotted on the road, there will be plenty of space not just for the passengers but also an increased boot space to store more items. A futuristic dashboard should be part of the Micra with all the expected features and some more innovative ones like autonomous driving. Most companies aren’t going for the self-driving concept but rather features which will make driving easy and reduce human made errors.
The car is equipped with autonomous braking for added safety, works with all smartphones and Bluetooth connectivity. A range of petrol and diesel engines will be available but there is no word on going for a hybrid version for the 2017 Nissan Micra. We are really close to the big Paris motor show and when it commences, we will know everything you need to know about the new Micra. Stay tuned!
