2017 Nissan Micra with new updates Launched in India Priced at Rs.5.99 Lakh

A company backed by Nest co-founder Tony Fadell is taking Andy Rubin's startup to court.


The 2017 Nissan Micra with new features has been launched in India with prices starting at Rs.5.99 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Not be confused with the new gen Micra that is now on sale globally, Nissan India continues to sell the present generation model in the country and the update is the carmaker’s tryst to keep the model appropriate amidst a host of offerings in the segment. More so, since the 5th gen Micra will not be hitting the Indian markets anytime soon. The MY2017 Nissan Micra gets automatic headlamps with follow-me function, along with rain sensing wipers and sporty orange accents added to the cabin. There are no changes to the styling on the hatchback, which remains the same since the face lifted version arrived in 2013.2017-nissan-micra_8064Engine options on the Nissan Micra get no changes either with power coming from the 1.2-litre petrol motor churning 73 bhp and 104 Nm of peak torque, while there is also the 1.5-litre diesel that belts out 63 bhp and 160 Nm of highest torque. Both power mills are paired to a 5-speed manual transmission, while the petrol continues to get the CVT X-Tronic automatic transmission. The Nissan Micra contests with the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Swift, Hyundai Grand i10 and the likes in the segment. The hatchback’s price range starts from Rs.5.99 lakh, going to up to Rs.7.23 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
The 5th gen Nissan Micra made its global debut at the Paris Motor Show last year and is a major leap over the current model. Not only does it look more stunning and futuristic in design, but packs in more features and better powertrain as well. Given the cost escalations of producing the new Nissan Micra, manufacturing of the new gen of the hatchback was moved to Europe from India and that is one of the reasons why we will not be getting the model anytime soon. We have exclusively driven the new generation Micra and yes, India has certainly missed a good car.
