Nissan Micra fans, assemble! There’s a fresh new face in the Nissan stable and it’s a zippy city-slicker that comes with plenty of bells and whistles to customise your ride. Here’s the skinny on the updated Micra and what you expect when you get behind the wheel.
The Micra Active is set to compete head-on with the best in the Lower B Hatch segment, which has grown substantially in the last ten years. The existing Micra won a Gold in the 2016 Product Quality Awards for best Entry Level Car in the Passenger segment. It was then decided to build on this model’s reputation for safety, reliability, fuel economy and low running costs by giving drivers a little more bang for their buck.
So, What’s New?
The Micra Active retains its reputation of a compact vehicle with a spacious and versatile interior, but now adds a bolder and more sporty design – the perfect car for discerning metropolitan drivers. A few choice styling changes makes the Micra Active appear more purposeful on the road, with a more sporty and dynamic personality to add some welcome bite to its bark.
The exterior styling changes extend to the grill, bonnet, front fenders, headlamps and front- and rear bumpers; while the interior boasts a redesigned audio cluster, refreshed instrument panel and improved interior fabric with a new design. Drivers can also look forward to more vibrant colours paired with a competitive assortment of standard specifications.
The Micra Active will now come standard with a class leading 3yr/90 000km service plan as part of the Nissan Assured programme. But wait there’s more – with added luxury features such as Bluetooth-enabled audio, powered and colour coded exterior mirrors and the best-in-class service plan, the Micra Active adds almost R15 000 in customer value!
The new Nissan Micra Active will also launch with a wide range of accessories that was specifically designed and manufactured by Nissan, allowing drivers to personalise their Micra Active with complete peace of mind as the accessories offer quality, durability, versatility and a perfect fit covered by the Nissan Approved Accessory Warranty.
