Nissan showed the next generation Micra
Category: Home / Articles / Auto
The first official photos of the new generation Nissan Micra appeared in the global network. They were taken by journalists at the Tokyo International Motor Show during a special event dedicated to the future debut of the car.
To the delight of fans of the compact Japanese model, the car was very stylish and cute, although the first sketches of the new generation Nissan Micra inspired some concerns about the design.
Nissan managed to keep the original look of the car, but the novelty borrowed some stylistic solutions from competitors: the grille looks the same as that of MINI cars, and the head optics resembles the headlights of the Italian Fiat Punto hatchback.
A slight aggressiveness of the exterior of the Nissan Micra is given by the stamping on the hood, although, of course, the car is not designed for fast driving style and is focused on unhurried movement, alternating with standing in traffic jams.
Nissan Micra is built on a new, lighter platform, which allows passengers to feel quite at ease in the cabin of the model. Engineers managed to reduce the weight of the car by 50 kg, and, as noted in the company, the model has become cleaner, more economical and more manageable.
For Nissan Micra, whose debut will take place next year, they have developed a new 3-cylinder engine, which will be docked with a continuously variable CVT, writes AutoExpress. Buyers of the model can count on the availability of technology Stop & Start.
It is assumed that the sale of new items in the local market will begin only in the autumn of next year. The assembly of the machine will be adjusted in factories in Thailand and India, which will enable the company to reduce production costs and not increase the cost of the 2011 Nissan Micra model year.
