Nissan Micra BOSE Personal Edition brings in-car audio experience to whole new level

Article by Christian A., on March 11, 2017

It’s a small hatch with a big bang! And we mean literally a big loud bang. After all, the new Nissan Micra BOSE Personal Edition just unfurled at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show features the latest in premium in-car audio technology.

As you might have guessed and as the moniker indicates, this edition of the fourth generation Nissan Micra supermini is loaded with premium audio technology courtesy of one of the leaders in this aspect, BOSE. Made to celebrate the carmaker’s partnership with BOSE, the Nissan Micra BOSE Personal Edition – derived from the Tekna trim of the supermini -- promises to bring an immersive listening experience coming from all angles, especially for the driver.

This is because this special edition of the supermini features BOSE Personal sound system, which the audio specialist has specifically designed and developed for the Nissan Micra. This Personal sound system is accompanied by twin BOSE UltraNearfield speakers that have been integrated into the headrest of the driver’s seat.

With BOSE signal processing helping create the ultimate audio experience, drivers could also have the sound personalized according to their preferences. This can be done through the BOSE PersonalSpace Control feature that helps drivers adjust the way the audio system delivers sound. For instance, the driver could have the sound channeled only to the front cabin. Likewise, the driver could have the sound be experienced optimally by all occupants, both on the front and rear cabins.

Two engine options are available for the Nissan Micra BOSE Personal Edition: a 0.9-liter three-cylinder downsized turbo petrol engine that develops 90 PS, and the 1.5-liter turbodiesel engine with 90 PS.

Nissan will commence sales of the Nissan Micra BOSE Personal Edition this summer in Europe, with only 3,000 examples up for grabs.

Exterior Design

It’s fairly easy to distinguish the Nissan Micra BOSE Personal Edition when it is on the road. After all, it is available only in two colors – Enigma Black or Gunmetal Grey – as accented by a number of easily recognizable Energy Orange finishers.

The Energy Orange finishers can be found on the doors and door mirrors as well as on the front and rear bumpers of the Nissan Micra BOSE Personal Edition.

Bright orange can also be found on the supermini’s its 17-inch alloy wheels. Anodized black and orange stickers can also be found on the roof and bonnet of the Nissan Micra BOSE Personal Edition. Further distinguishing elements include its LED headlamp units and the BOSE Personal badging on the supermini’s B-pillars.

Interior Design

A similar Energy Orange color scheme is also found inside the supermini, particularly on its dashboard and gear surround as well as on its seats, door sills and floor mats.

Expectedly, the Micra BOSE Personal Edition is already laden with a high level of standard equipment, considering that it is derived from the supermini’s top Tekna trim. This means that the Micra BOSE Personal Edition features NissanConnect infotainment system and Nissan Intelligent Key.

NISSAN UNVEILS PREMIUM NEW MICRA BOSE PERSONAL EDITION AT GENEVA MOTOR SHOW

A premium new limited edition of the all-new Nissan Micra has been unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.

The BOSE Personal Edition is based on the range-topping Tekna grade, but comes with a number of extras and personalisation features as standard. Offering exceptional value for money, only 3,000 examples will be available across Europe.

As the car’s name suggests, its specification has been created to celebrate Nissan’s collaboration with BOSE, premium audio partner on the all-new Micra. It comes with the unique-to-Micra BOSE Personal sound system, with twin BOSE UltraNearfield™ speakers built into the driver’s seat head rest. This innovative design, combined with BOSE signal processing, provides a spacious and immersive 360° listening experience for the driver.

The sound can also be personalised to suit the driver’s tastes with the help of the BOSE PersonalSpace Control feature built into the Micra’s audio settings. It provides an adjustable range of options, from a precise and front-focused sound to a much wider and enveloping experience.

Marc Mansell, Vice President, BOSE Automotive Systems, commented: “We engineered the BOSE Personal sound system to deliver unexpectedly big sound from a limited number of components. Using just six high-performance speakers and our latest signal processing technology, the system rewards Micra owners with a superior, fully-customisable audio experience unlike anything else available today.”

The Nissan Micra BOSE Personal Edition is available in one of two vibrant exterior colours – Enigma Black or Gunmetal Grey – and each is enhanced with Energy Orange elements from the Micra’s personalisation program. Stylish orange finishers are fitted to the front and rear bumper, doors, door mirrors and 17-inch alloy wheels. All are added by hand in the factory – in Flins, France – for a guaranteed high-quality finish.

Full LED headlamps create a striking night-time signature for the car, as well as exceptional visibility for improved road safety. The finishing touches to the exterior are the high-quality anodised black and orange stickers on the roof and bonnet, plus unique BOSE Personal badging on the Micra’s B-pillars.

Personalisation is also a key part of the car’s interior appeal. Soft-touch, double-stitched Energy Orange material has been used to enhance the look of the dashboard and gear surround, while there’s matching detailing on the seats, floor mats and door sills.

As it’s based on Tekna trim, the Micra BOSE Personal Edition already has a high level of standard equipment. This includes the NissanConnect infotainment system with DAB digital radio and satellite navigation, Nissan Intelligent Key and an arm rest between the front seats.

It also comes with the Safety Pack as standard, which includes Intelligent Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Recognition, Traffic Sign Recognition and High Beam Assist. Intelligent Lane Intervention – a technology which smoothly guides the car back to the centre of a lane – is also fitted.

Intelligent Around View Monitor – Nissan’s innovative parking camera system – plus Idle Stop&Start, heated front seats and a spare wheel are all on the options list.

To maximise customer choice, the Nissan Micra BOSE Personal Edition is available with either the 0.9-litre 90 PS three-cylinder downsized turbo petrol engine or the 1.5-litre 90 PS turbodiesel. It will go on sale this summer.
