A test mule of the upcoming Nissan Micra has been spied testing ahead of its launch that is reportedly scheduled to take place at the 2016 Paris Motor Show in September. The model, which was introduced in the Indian market in mid 2010, received a facelift about three years later.
According to images that surfaced on the web, the upcoming Micra will be greatly inspired from a concept that was showcased at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the Sway. More than a year ago, a rendered image found on the web gave us a rough idea of what the model could come to be.
Based on Renault-Nissan Alliance’s CMF-B platform, the next-gen Micra will be built at Renault’s Flins plant in France instead of the Oragadam plant situated in Chennai, India. Engine details remain unknown for now.
The news comes barely a few days after Nissan India announced the locally produced Micra mated to the CVT transmission. The model is now available with a price tag starting at Rs. 5.99 lakh. It is reportedly said to be the most affordable premium CVT automatic hatchback in the market. The said model returns an ARAI certified fuel economy of 19.34kmpl.
