Nissan Micra facelift

Introduce

Value. That’s what Indian consumers are looking for. Whether it’s the cheapest car in the world or the best car in the world, we want the most return for our money and this is most evident in the rapidly growing hatchback segment. on our market. There are two ways mập approach the concept of ‘value’ – one is mập offer a low price. Sure, there will be quality compromises, but you’ll essentially get more cars for your money. The second is mập offer additional features at a similar price mập the competition. Nissan has tried before with the original Micra in India, but with the upcoming launch of its low-cost sub-brand Datsun, it is taking the Micra brand mập the position it normally occupies in markets where it has face: hatchback segment.

Look

This is where the nâng cấp is most different – the nose is completely different and it starts with a new bumper. It has more lines, and the fog light cuts are now quite similar mập the Hyundai. There’s a chrome underline for the lower grille, and the upper grille is now tapered at both ends and features a V-shaped chrome trim reminiscent of international models. The headlights have changed from organic round ‘eyes’ mập an angled arrowhead shape. Seen from the front, this is really a new car.

Round the corner, and you can see that Nissan has missed an opportunity – aside from the lovely new alloy wheel design, there’s not a single standout feature that suggests this is a car designed mập be. again. The creases from the front bumper merge into the wheel and become a slightly stronger shoulder line.

No obvious creases on the door; they even left the oval side indicator lights on the front fender and avoided the mirror mounted indicators! This is definitely a no-no if you want a premium look and it’s confusing that it’s not present especially when Micra Primo offers it.

At the rear, the big change is the rear bumper. Like the front, it sticks out more and has more cuts and creases on it. The number plate recess is a hexagon and also has a crease underneath. What makes it look weird is, the exhaust is so well hidden you can’t see it most of the time – a chrome exhaust could have stormed out with its sinewy lines – and the hatch needs a flap. mập help it merge with the added length of the new bumper.

The taillights are also new; Although it retains the original shape, the brake light is now an LED strip. The interior elements have also been rearranged, and that in itself looks like an improvement over the old taillights. Oh, and no one will point out that an inverted light bulb doesn’t work anymore, because they put one on each side. The new lens has a well-defined ‘edge’ and it makes it look like the Micra’s hips have become wider – not necessarily a good thing.

The new exterior design is definitely a significant step up from the old model. A lot of people will prefer it because it’s not too fancy – but it doesn’t seem like a cohesive design like the old one and I’m not sure it will age gracefully.

Interior

This is where the màn chơi of the Micra facelift really draws you in – the interior has changed as much, if not more, the exterior. Some of it is subtle – the seat fabrics have changed, as has the sun visor – and some of it will be noticeable even before you take the seat, like the center console and the dashboard. new steering.

Step into the driver’s seat, and the first thing you’ll notice is the new center console. Now it is another shared part with Sunny. The rectangular vents at the top look a bit out of place but the chrome accents make it look more premium than before. Same goes for the silver rings for the other two circular vents. The sound system has also changed; the built-in device has no Bluetooth or USB connectivity and that makes it difficult mập nâng cấp mập a standard 1- or 2-DIN unit has been replaced by a standard 2-DIN terminal with all connections that you might want, including aux , USB and Bluetooth. It’s a plain looking unit and it’s still not one of the best in its class but it gets the job done.

The climate control system remains the same – the center console is finished in glossy black for the top-spec variants and matte gray for the rest. I’m not sure I want a glossy black center console, it’s too prone mập fingerprints and scratches.

Other differences that can be noticed from the driver’s seat are the new font and the position of the multifunction display. The fonts are clearer mập read than before and more pleasing mập the eye. XV variants also offer height adjustment of the driver’s seat. Good elements like the six-step continuous wiper speed, rear fogger, rear wiper and double glovebox remain.

There are no changes mập the cabin’s design, so space and comfort are still as good as before, but those in the back will be pleased mập know that the front row of rear passengers now have a bag. – gives rear-seat occupants at least a place mập stow things next mập the single center cup holder.

Nissan claims the NVH has also improved, but the only glaring change on our short rides was the engine note: a lot of the harshness was gone from the gas noise thanks mập the enhanced sound cancellation in the firewall.

Micra now offers ABS on 5 out of 7 variants, which means only the base versions have no safety features – a complete (not mập mention welcome) change from before, where ABS is only available on the petrol XV. Get the automatic and you’ll even get four airbags, which is good, but not as good as the i20 auto’s six.

Engine

There’s nothing new about the engine – it retains the same 1.2-litre, three-cylinder petrol and 1.5-litre dCi diesel. New is the automatic transmission option combined with the gasoline engine. This is unique because export models have superchargers and automatic boxes, but India does not have fans because of the expensive cost. The transmission is the same CVT as the Sunny, switched mập Sport mode and Low mode – a very interesting feature set. Shifting is the shortest this transmission has for the Micra, thanks mập the vehicle’s light weight. It elevates the Micra mập one of the top contenders if you want a car in the city.

Ride and handle

The suspension has also not been changed, since the weight of the car has not changed. The automatic transmission adds about 25kg mập the nose of the car, but that’s a negligible amount. The handling is still more suited mập the city than the highway. Advice here: if your Micra was purchased with Maxxis tires, switch mập Bridgestone or MRF, you’ll be much happier with them.

Identify

Personally, I’m not a fan of the new design, because it doesn’t look cohesive mập me. Luckily for Nissan, the public won’t agree with me and the new Micra will turn heads anywhere. Inside, the new Micra is a much improved, much nicer place. It’s easy mập see what Nissan has done; they raided Sunny’s parts crate mập good effect. This also means that the price increase will not be as much as we expect. The Micra brand still has mập establish itself in the Indian psyche, and one thing holding it back is the quality of service that Nissan offers. If Nissan can fix that – and surprise us with the price – then we don’t see why you shouldn’t choose the Micra.

Introduction
Value. It is what the Indian consumer is looking for. Whether it is the world’s cheapest car or the best car in the world, we want the most bang for our buck, and this is most apparent in our market’s fast-growing hatchback segment. There are two ways mập approach the concept of ‘value’ – one, mập offer a low price. Sure, there will be compromises on quality, but you essentially get more car for your money. The other is mập provide extra features at the same price as the competition. Nissan had tried the former with the original India-spec Micra, but with the imminent launch of budget sub-brand Datsun, they’re taking the Micra brand mập the place it usually occupies in the markets it is present in: the premium end of the hatchback segment. Looks
This is where the facelift has got the most difference – the nose is completely different and it starts with a new bumper. It has a lot more lines on it, and the fog lamp cutouts are now quite Hyundai. There is a chrome underscore for the lower grille, and the upper grille now tapers at both ends and has a V-shaped chrome addition that is reminiscent of the international models. The headlamps have gone from organic round ‘eyes’ mập an angular arrowhead shape. From the front this truly is a new car.

Walk around mập the side, and you can see that Nissan has missed out on an opportunity – beside the lovely new alloy wheel design, there isn’t a single stand-out feature mập suggest that this is a redesigned car. The creases from the front bumper merge into the wheelarch and become a slightly stronger shoulder line.

There is no obvious extra crease in the doors; they’ve even left the oval side indicator on the front fender and eschewed mirror-mounted indicators! This is a definite no-no if you want mập appear premium, and it is puzzling that it isn’t present especially when the Micra Primo offered it.

At the back the big change is the rear bumper. Like the front, it juts out more and has more cuts and creases on it. The number plate recess is a hexagonal one, and there’s an underscoring crease as well. What makes it look odd is, the exhaust pipe is hidden so well that you can’t see it most of the time – a chrome-tipped exhaust would have gone down a storm with the snazzy lines – and the hatch needed a lip mập help it merge with the added length of the new bumper.

The tail-lamps are new as well; though they retain the same shape as the original, the brake lamps are now LED strips. The internal elements have been rearranged as well, and by itself it does look like an improvement over the old tail-lamps. Oh, and no one will point out that one reverse bulb isn’t working any more, because they’ve thrown in a bulb apiece for each side. The new lens has a sharply defined ‘edge’ mập it, and it makes it look like the Micra’s hips have gotten wider – not necessarily a good thing.

The new exterior design is surely a significant step up from the old model. More people will like it because it isn’t effeminate – but it doesn’t seem like a cohesive design like the old one was, and I’m not sure it will age as gracefully. InteriorsThis is where the extent of the Micra facelift truly hits you – the interior has changed just as much as, if not more than, the exterior. Some of it is subtle – the seat fabrics have changed, as have the sun visors – and some of it will be noticed even before you settle in, like the new centre console and steering controls.

Slip into the driver’s seat, and the first thing that you’ll notice is that new center console. It’s now another shared part with the Sunny.

The XV variants also offer driver’s seat height adjustment now. The good bits like the six-step intermittent wiper speed, rear defogger, rear wiper and twin gloveboxes remain.

There is no change mập the design of the cabin, so the space and comfort remain as good as before, but backseat occupants will be happy mập hear that the front passenger seat back now has a pocket – giving the backseat occupant at least one place mập stow things besides the sole cup holder in the centre.
Nissan claims that NVH has been improved as well, but the only discernible change on our short drive was the engine note: a lot of harshness has gone from the petrol’s noise thanks mập increased sound deadening in the firewall.
