Nissan Micra Overview
Last year, Nissan, the Japanese Car giant had showcased the new generation Micra at the Paris Motor Show. This new gen car is being now readied for an India launch. However, this will happen only in the year 2019.The current Nissan Micra will be discontinued by next year, to make way for the all new Nissan Micra 2019. The new Mincra is sort of a revolution in terms of design and styling. It looks very different from the existing models and uses a new design language.
As the trend of SUVs is rising, another trend that is growing is of premium hatchbacks. The shift and preference of buyers towards Hyundai Elite i20 and the Maruti Baleno is proof enough about emerging trends in the hatchback segment. The new Nissan Micra 2019 will fit into this category and will intensify competition.
Nissan’s Indian market operations have been lacklustre and they havent been getting any new models to dominate the market. The all-new Micra looks to be a promising car and comes with stylish design and razor sharp styling. This will itself create a pull for this car as it looks very futuristic. The new Nissan Micra 2019 is built on the CMF-B platform and this will underpin several other cars from the Renault-Nissan alliance. However, this platform may not make it to India and the New Micra may see the older platform doing duty in it.

As mentioned above, the new Nissan Micra exterior has not received any change, save for the new integrated turn indicators on the outside rear view mirrors and a rear spoiler on the top-spec petrol-CVT variant. Apart from these changes, the hatchback retains all the styling elements from the preceding model. It gets auto headlamps, rain-sensing wipers and other external features offered with the previous model.
