Nissan has revealed initial pricing and grade details for its fifth-generation Micra ahead of order books opening later this month.
Unveiled at the Paris Motor Show, the new Micra brings increased space, downsized turbo drivetrains, a new chassis and latest safety features to the supermini segment, and will replace both its predecessor and the Note.
Five grade levels will be offered – Visia, Visia+, Acenta, N-Connecta and Tekna – with early pricing details released by Nissan showing that the range will be priced from £11,995, rising to the range-topping models.
Engine line-up from launch will cover a 0.9-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine and a 1.5-litre diesel, both with 89bhp.These will be joined soon after by a naturally aspirated 72bhp 1.0-litre petrol engine. No performance or efficiency figures have been released.
Standard equipment details are also still to be announced but options include keyless entry with engine start/stop button, heated front seats, and a first-of-its-kind Bose sound system with Bose UltraNearfield speakers, combined with Bose PersonalSpace Virtual Audio Technology, built into the driver seat headrest.
There will be 10 body colours to choose from and a range of exterior and interior personalisation packs including contrast-colour cabin and body features, leather trim, dynamic 17-inch alloys with colour detailing and body decals.
Full range pricing, as well as specifications and options for the new Micra, will be announced later this month when pre-orders open ahead of the model’s 2017 arrival.
