About NISSAN MICRA

The Nissan Micra is a high-refined product from the Japanese automotive manufacturer. It is light and driving it is a breeze. The space is sufficient with decent seating. It also comes loaded with bells and whistles that are now being introduced in other B+ segment hatchbacks. The Nissan Micra since its facelift does look aggressive and sharper with its new front grille and headlamp design, an evolution of its curvy fascia.

The Micra continues with its curvy theme for the interiors. The door handles, the tachometer, the air-con vents, the centre console all are round in shape. With the Micra, you can cash-in on features like keyless entry, push button start and electrically folding ORVMs, which are first-in segment. The quality of the interiors plastics is good and the fit and finish is also decent.

The space in the Micra is good. The space for the front row is sufficient with enough support for your back and thighs. The size of the boot is also sufficient.

Both the engines on the Micra are refined and drivable. The 1.5 litre diesel is a highly frugal engine with low NVH (noise vibration and harshness) levels, both the petrol and diesel are recommendable. It all depends on your usage. For automatic, you only have the petrol CVT. Even the diesel engine like the petrol comes mated to a five speed manual transmission. The ARAI claimed mileage for the oil burner version of the Micra is 23.08kmpl.

All the cars in this segment have a sorted ride as the suspension doesn't jiggle and disturb the peace of the occupants. Road undulations are well-taken care by the suspension. The Micra has one of the best ride suppleness as it underpins the softest suspension set-up that glides over potholes. The steering wheel is very light and easy to drive in the city.

Our Verdict

The Micra is an attractive hatchback that comes in a petrol variant. The exterior is done up with trendy features and all variants offer colored bumpers. The front bumper looks sporty and curvy which adds more oomph to the already stylish hatchback. The engine may not be suited for enthusiasts but it does a fair job of ferrying you from Point A to B comfortably. Nissan has clearly taken the market by storm by providing a car with good color options and features at a fairly reasonable price. There might be few things lacking, but there is enough to keep you googly-eyed.
