The 2016 Paris Motor Show in September saw the unveiling on the all new Nissan Micra Gen5. Totally redesigned, this model is a reinvention of the Micra all together. It is as bold as it is groundbreaking. Its design is edgy and eye catching, the highly advanced technology, and new innovative engine and body design make it leader in its class. It looks to cause quite a stir on the streets when it is launched in Europe.
When it comes to city driving, you can’t beat a small car. But when you are weaving through traffic in Joburg, trying to find parking in Durban, or simply trying to find your way through the maze of one ways in Cape Town, you want more than a small car: you want a small car that is comfortable, stylish and most importantly, highly affordable. Meet the Nissan Micra – more than just a small car!
Both Moms and Mobsters are always looking to find a better car for the family, but they obviously have some very different needs and ideas when it comes to buying a new car. We take a look at the Nissan Micra and see whether it is good for the family or the famiglia.
If we have learnt one thing from The Godfather, it is that keeping the family happy is important. While the kids might love the backseat of the Micra with its comfortable seating, you might not want to have a huge pile of wiseguys trying to crowd into it. But even if you had to, you know that there is enough space. The same goes for the boot. The Nissan Micra has more than enough space for your shopping and even for the luggage when you go on holiday, and if you are looking to keep some less than friendly competitor in it for a few hours you might find that they are going to be comfortable – not something that your average mobster is hoping for.
The Nissan Micra might be a one of the most affordable cars on the market, but that doesn’t mean that it has to be slow and boring! Over in Canada the Nissan team there have created the first ever Nissan Micra Cup in Quebec.
This one of a kind racing series promises to show off the other side of the Micra by allowing lucky drivers to take to the tack in a race ready Nissan Micra and burning some serious rubber.
And it is a goodie! Nissan Europe has just released a new Nissan Micra TV campaign and you can catch all of the latest TV ad’s right here on our blog. They are funny, irreverent and poke fun at modern life, but don’t just take our word for it… Watch them and then let us know what you think in the comments section below.
For more than 30 years Nissan’s top-selling supermini car has become the preferred means of personal transport for over 6 million Micra fans around the globe. In fact, thanks to its famously low petrol consumption, legendary maneuverability and now its dynamic new design, the Micra has earned its place in the hearts of all Nissan aficionados.
To showcase the Micra in Europe, and highlight its urban agility, Nissan invited some of the world’s top motoring journalists to an international press launch of the new model in Bratislava. The aim of which was to get them into the spirit of driving the Micra as part of the Micra City Challenge. This specially created urban course was built with tight and twisty cone-strewn obstacles that replicated the worst a typical urban environment could throw at the car. The result? It gave the journalists the chance to experience the Micra’s class-leading turning circle (just 9.3m), excellent visibility and perfectly weighted controls. In a word it was a SUCCESS!
We recently launched a new YouTube campaign to highlight not only our amazing Nissan vehicles, such as the Micra, but also our awesome prices. Go take a look below.
