The 2017 Nissan Micra has been upgraded and is much better than its predecessor. Finally, the prices for the UK market have been announced. This is the fifth-generation model, and it will compete in the subcompact hatchback segment. If you are from the UK, you will be able to pre-order your Micra later in December. The starting price of the 2017 version is going to be £11,995.
The first thing that may come to your mind is that the 2016 Micra is not this expensive. You are right, but you need to realize that the new generation model brings so much more. First of all, there is the 0.9-liter three-cylinder turbo petrol engine that produces 90bhp. In addition, a 1.5-liter turbo diesel engine is also a possibility, and it delivers the same amount of horsepower as the unit above.
Besides that, the customers will have a chance to choose a 1.0-liter naturally aspirated 3-cylinder unit good for 73 bhp. It is good to see that Nissan offers three options under the hood for the new Micra, which fuel economy will be admirable.
The five trims of the 2017 Nissan Micra will be on sale in the UK. The base trim is the Visia, followed by Visia+ and Acenta. After that, we have N-Connecta, whereas the range-topping is called Tekna with the £17,295 starting price. The Japanese carmaker firmly believes that the Acenta will be the most popular trim. If you want this model, you will have to pay £14,995.
2017 Nissan Micra Release Date
The new vehicle will be produced at the Renault factory located in Flins, and we expect it to hit the market in March 2017 while the pricing details for the continental Europe will be displayed later. There is going to be a tough battle between the 2017 Nissan Micra and the 2017 Ford Fiesta. What do you think about the new Micra?
