New Nissan Micra Facelift (pictured) costs from £9,950
Although we saw the new facelift for the Nissan Micra in the guise of the overseas Nissan March in back in March, it took Nissan until this month to reveal the new Micra for the UK, and now we’ve got specifications and prices confirmed. Starting at £9,950 for the Micra Visia, all new Micra models come with a new front and back, upgraded interior with a new centre console, better materials and more equipment.
The entry-level Visia gets Bluetooth, electric front windows, remote central locking and USB, with the mid-spec Acenta (from £11,550) adding alloys, leather steering wheel, Climate and Cruise. The top of the range Micra Tekna (from £12,950) adds Nissan Connect SatNav, Parking Slot Measurement, parking sensors and keyless start.
All the new Micras continue with 1.2 litre petrol in either naturally aspirated form with 79bhp or Supercharged with 97bhp, both of which can be had with a CVT ‘box if you wish (but why you would…).
It’s a strong pitch for a car that lost its way and became a bit too ‘cheap’ to be credible, but the facelift, better quality materials and extra equipment have gone a long way to address the gripes. Whether they’re enough to give the Micra the filip Nissan hopes remains to be seen.
The new Nissan Micra is now on sale with first customer cars arriving in Nissan’s UK showrooms for delivery in September.
