New generation Nissan Micra is expected to make global debut at 2016 Paris Motor Show
The new generation Nissan Micra has been in news for quite some time. We have seen the spyshots of the test mule and the rendering images as well. TopSpeed posted a speculative rendering image of the upcoming new-gen Nissan Micra. It gives us an idea, how this car is going to look like in flesh.
The new generation Micra looks absolutely cool compare to the outgoing model. The new design is aggressive with revised front fascia. It features a redesigned V motion grille with chrome garnished, trimmed and sleeker headlamp clusters with LED daytime running lights. The front bumper has been redesigned to give the front grille a larger appearance. The fog lamps come surrounded by black accents.
Changes are visible at the side profile as well. It features sportier and aggressive alloy wheels, sharp and floating character lines, side turning indicator integrated ORVM and sloping roof. A significant change is the rear passenger door handle, which has been moved up to the thick blackened C pillar. We have seen in the Chevrolet Beat, and the upcoming next generation Swift will also sport similar design. The rear gets a roof spoiler and wrap around taillamps.
The interior would also get a revamped look and several upmarket features. Expect it to come with new multifunction steering wheel, touchscreen infotainment system and more space on offer. The new Micra will be built on the CMF-B platform, based on the Renault-Nissan alliance developed CMF platform. But the India spec model is expected to be built on a revamped V platform.
Expect the car to come powered by a 0.9 litre TCe turbocharged petrol engine under the hood. The transmission options could include both the manual and automatic gearbox options. The car is expected to make its global debut at Paris Motor Show later this year. The new Nissan Micra will be assembled by Renault at its Flins plant near Paris.
