2014 Nissan Micra facelift revealed with March debut in ThailandMon, 25 Mar 2013 00:00:00 -0700
A facelift for the 2014 Nissan Micra has been revealed with the debut of the new Nissan March in Thailand.
But that move to cut production costs took its toll on the Micra with sales in Europe dropping by almost 10 per cent as buyers moaned about the build quality of the new Micra and the lack of a diesel engine option.
So now Nissan are giving the Micra a bit of a facelift for the 2014 model year to breathe some new life in to sales, with the new Micra debuting as the new Nissan March in Thailand last week.
It seems the facelift for the Micra is just cosmetic and there are no signs of a diesel option appearing for the Micra.
The cosmetic changes amount to a new nose with new headlights, grill and bumper at the front, new alloy and wheel designs and a new bumper and LED lights at the back. Inside the new Micra gets a new centre console and the switchgear has been titivated.

It’s not a big makeover for the Micra/March and looks like a refresh designed to appeal more to the Micra’s market in Thailand and India than in Europe.
But then, it seems Nissan has lost interest in Europe as a market for small hatches, preferring to sell its successful range of crossovers, like the Qashqai and Juke.
The 2014 Nissan Micra facelift is expected to arrive in the UK later in 2013.
