Design and Features
New 2015 Nissan Micra coming with small changes and improvemenst when we talk about design and styling. Its front fascia bears resemblance to the other Nissan larger Nissan models, with its familiar grille and headlights design. Base model comes with 15 inch steel wheels, wrapped in plastic. Higher trim levels like SR for instance come with 16 inch alloys, while the top trim comes with side sills, foglights, rear spoiler and chrome exhaust finnish.
Lowest trim level is caalled ”Quebec Special” in Canada. For purpose of lowering its price and making it more interesting to the younger crowd, this trim comes with no air conditioning, manual window handles and locks and literarelly no hi tech fetures. These features come with higher trim levels, like SV or SR trim level, that comes with 4,3 inch color display, back up camera and more premium cloth upholstery than the one you can find in “Quebec Special”. Don’t expect this vehicle to come with some of the more luxurious features, like leather upholstery, navigation or soft touch materials on the dashboard, since you are not going to find those even in the highest trim levels.
When it comes to performance section, in Canada Micra comes with only one engine option. It’s the 1,6 liter inline four cylinder engine. This engine is able to produce 109 horsepowers at 6000 rpm and 107 pound feet of torque. Although most of the online reviewers expected CVT transmission to come with this model, Nissan decided to put 5 speed manual gear shifter. Some people think that its engine feels weak at moments, but it actually comes with average power for its class.
