New Nissan Micra 2013 price revealed
The new Nissan Micra will cost from £9,950 when it goes on sale in September
A new version of the ever-popular Nissan Micra has been revealed, and it goes on sale in September priced from £9,950.
Visual changes include a new front end with revised headlights and a new bumper – as well as a grille inspired by the current Nissan Qashqai.
At the back there’s a redesigned bumper and new LED lights, as well as new 15-inch and 16-inch alloy wheel designs and two bold new paint options – Pacific Blue and metallic Platinum Sage.
Inside, the latest Micra is packed with loads of innovative technology including a state-of-the-art 5.8-inch touch-screen navigation system. Among its clever features is a special eco-routing system and Google Send-To-Car technology that allows the driver to preselect a route on their mobile phone before sending the destination to the car. All models come with a five-speed manual gearbox and stop-start as standard, while a CVT automatic gearbox is optional across the range.
The new Micra will also come with an advanced parking feature called Parking Slot Measurement. As its name suggests, it measures parking spaces and informs the driver via a dashboard display whether the car will fit or not. It can even be adjusted to account for the driver’s skill – at amateur, normal or expert levels. This, paired with the car’s electric power steering and one of the tightest turning circles in its class, ensures that the New Micra is instantly at home in the city.
The new Micra comes with a range of engines, including Nissan’s latest three-cylinder 1.2-litre 97bhp supercharged (DIG-S) petrol engine. It’ll do 68.9mpg and emits 95g/km of CO2 – giving diesel-rivalling economy, but with the smooth and quiet characteristics of a petrol engine. Nissan will also offer a basic 1.2-litre petrol engine with 79bhp – capable of 115g/km.
The New Micra will be offered in three specifications – starting with the entry-level Visia model priced from £9,950. Standard equipment includes remote central locking, electric front windows, iPod connectivity and an extensive range of safety features including airbags, ABS brakes and electronic stability control.
The mid-range Acenta models start at £11,550 and add chrome trim, 15-inch alloy wheels, a roof spoiler, automatic climate control, front fog-lamps, and Bluetooth connectivity for your mobile phone. Automatic lights and wipers are also standard.
Top-of-the-range Tekna versions add automatic air-conditioning, sat-nav, rear parking sensors, 16-inch alloy wheels, electric-folding door mirrors and I-Key keyless entry and start. It also includes the Parking Slot Measurment system as standard, while a panoramic glass roof is an option. Prices start at £12,950.
