The first customers to order the all-new Nissan Micra are taking delivery of their cars this week. The new Micra’s roll-out to Nissan retailers across Europe began at the start of 2017. By the end of March approximately 6,000 vehicles will be on forecourts and in showrooms, for onward delivery to customers.
Approximately 2,000 Nissan retailers in Belgium, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, France, UK, Spain, Portugal, Italy and the Netherlands already have the new Micra available for demonstration drives. Eastern European and Scandinavian markets will follow shortly.
Paul Willcox, Chairman, Nissan Europe, commented: “The revolutionary fifth-generation Micra sets new standards for European customers buying in the core B-hatchback segment. It delivers an agile and confident drive, and with thousands of Micras now at Nissan retailers across Europe, consumers can find out just what a revolution this car is for themselves.”
Nissan says its range is strengthened and widened by the arrival of the all-new Micra, which has been designed, engineered and manufactured for Europe. The car is built at the Flins factory in France, as part of the Renault-Nissan Alliance.
The company says the new Nissan Micra is a technology leader, with a number of features which are not only new to the Micra but new to the segment. These include Intelligent Lane Intervention, a safety system which corrects the Micra back on to the right path should it be required.
Also unique is the BOSE Personal audio system, which features speakers built into the driver’s head rest for a 360° sound experience. The new Micra is available with a wide range of personalisation options, modifying the exterior and interior with components in a variety of contemporary colours.
The Micra is available with three engines – a 0.9-litre three-cylinder downsized turbo petrol, a 1.0-litre naturally aspirated petrol and a 1.5-litre 89 bhp diesel.
