This year, the Nissan Micra is celebrating three decades of vehicle dependability and affordability, as well as popularity. Riding on the saying that “life starts at 30,” Nissan is marking a new milestone in Micra’s three decades and four generations of existence by announcing a range of new ‘30’ themed offers for owners of the supermini.
Drivers who have owned Micras for more than three years are all qualified to take advantage of an MOT for as little as £30. Qualified owners could avail of new accessories, including a 30-percent discount off tires and windscreen wiper blades. Qualified owners could also avail of a 30-percent discount off Micra brake pads and batteries, which are now available from just £45.
All prices already include VAT as well as a free fitting. Chris Marsh, Aftersales Director, remarked that Micra’s loyal customers have been instrumental to the supermini’s success over the past 30 years. He noted that Nissan is making the new offers to mark “this great achievement” and to say a “big thank you” to all Micra owners. To avail of the offers, you just need to visit your dealership.
Sold in over fifty countries worldwide, the Nissan Micra continues to prove itself as one of the most popular small cars in the world. The Micra or March as it is also known in some countries is built in four major centres around the world, specifically China, India, Mexico and Thailand.
However in spite of its worldwide popularity, the new Micra has been designed with the European market in mind. With changes to its exterior and interior finish, the designers have made sure that the new Micra will appeal to the tough European market who demands excellent quality, handling, performance and up to date technology.
The exterior reveals a series of changes, the grille now resembles others in the Nissan range with the badge held in the now familiar V-shaped chrome trim. The bonnet, front bumper, headlamps and the wings have all also been replaced, reshaped and given a distinctive new look. The front fog lamps have also been chromed.
Moving round to the rear of the Nissan reveals a new infill panel on the tailgate, new bumper and LED tail lamps as well as some 15-inch alloys and the new 16- inch version which are specially machine-finished. The combination of changes has meant that the Micra sits lower and looks much more aggressive.
Adding to the changes are some prominent new colours including Metallic Platinum Sage and Pearl Metallic Pacific Blue as well as the traditional colours.
On the inside, the new instrument panel has been sharpened to aid driver visibility and it comes with a modest improvement in the air vents. The new panel comes in a glossy black finish and the gear stick is now available in silver. The armrests are much more comfortable and are visibly of better quality as is the fabric on the seat and door pads.
The different Nissan Micra models feature a variety of mesh woven fabrics. For example, the Visia and Acenta come with tricot mesh while the Tekna has a double stitched suede-like fabric.
