Preview: 2011 Nissan Micra

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

These are the long-awaited pictures of the next-generation supermini, the Nissan Micra, which will have its official debut next year. Several changes were observed, the most obvious of which were the addition of a MINI-style grille and Fiat Punto-like headlights.

Nissan gave the Micra its all-new V-platform (V stands for versatile) that provides more cabin space and is lighter.

Included in the plans is an MPV version of the Micra, which replaces the popular Note in late 2011.

The Micra was made more efficient due to Nissan's maneuverings to make this model 50 kgs lighter than the outgoing car. Another advantage is that the car has better handling. The model boasts to have more room as well as higher quality.

To maximize fuel economy, Nissan designed an all-new three-cylinder engine that's mated to a fresh CVT auto gearbox. Also featured is a stop-start system.

Who can resist the Micra? Purchasing one adds up to weight savings. In addition, a sub-120g/km CO2 output is anticipated, as are fuel returns of 60mpg.

Be on the lookout for the five-door version in October 2010. Prices are anticipated to be competitive with other brands.
