The Inside Story On The New Nissan Micra

Inspirational Exterior Design:

This new 5th generation Micra has a sculpted body design that still lower and wider than the previous model with expressive lines lending to it a poised, athletic stance.

The frontal athletic lines are achieved by the combination of a reduced a-pillar angle, a shortened bonnet and narrow halogen headlamps, which house signature LED daytime running lights on every model. The look is completed by Nissan signature V-motion grille that seamlessly connects into the flowing lines of the vehicle’s sloping roofline that dramatically dips towards the rear of the car.

The view from the rear of the Micra starts with striking light clusters, a sculpted bumper and a sporty rear roof spoiler. Not only does this create the distinctive Micra look but also enhances the aerodynamic performance of the car.

Nissan is also aiming to take the lead on when it comes to available colour choice to customers. Colours include: Ivory, White, Platinum Silver, Echo Grey, Enigma Black, Glaze White, Energy Orange, Passion Red, Pulse Green and Power Blue.

A number of irresistible exterior accessories can be purchased by new owners. These include: Door mirror caps, front and rear bumper finishers, and side mouldings. Or add 17″ alloy wheels in a choice of colours and finish off the look with a choice of decals in seven different styles.

Exhilarating interior design

The ‘gliding wing’ dashboard forms the basis that the cabin of the Micra is designed around. The dashboard controls and instruments are conveniently grouped together for comfort and safety.

Soft-touch, beautifully two-toned materials provide comfort and the interior look is neatly finished off with a D-shaped multi-function steering wheel and chrome finished air vents and door handles.

Lowered seats, designed to provide back support, make provision for ample headroom but at the same time, excellent seat adjustment ensures that shorter drivers have no problem being comfortable and in control in the Micra. The wider body of the vehicle translates into improved elbow room all round! Talking about space, the ample 300-litre capacity boot space is also class-leading and provision for more storage options has been made in numerous ways.

Customers are also provided with a number of personalisation elements which includes modifications on materials and colour elements, seat bolsters and pads, door armrest, knee pad and instrument panel modifications. Further individual personalisation choices include side mouldings, mirror caps, bumper finisher, lower boot finisher, rear view mirror cover, front seat central armrest, upholstered floor mats, boot mat, shark-fin roof antenna, illuminated entry guards, ambient interior lighting, sports pedals, mudguards, tow ball and a range of carriers.
