2011 Nissan Micra revealed in Geneva
Nissan has finally unveiled the next generation of its global compact car, the 2011 Micra, at the Geneva Motor Show.
The car, which was teased some time ago, is built on the all-new global V-platform that Nissan will be using for its small models. Two engines will be available at first, a 79 HP 1.2-liter three-cylinder petrol engine, capable of a “whopping” 80 lb-ft of torque, and a beffier superchared 97 HP 1.2-liter engine, capable of 105 lb-ft of torque. CO2 emissions range from the former’s 115 g/km to the latter’s 95 g/km (it also has an Auto Start Stop system).
The new Micra will be available with either a five-speed manual gearbox or a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). Optional features will include things like rear parking sensors, a touchscreen infotainment system, glass roof and a special “Parking Space Measurement” system (PSM), which lets you know, depending on your selected skill (Amateur, Normal, Expert), if a parking space is large enough for the car.
The new Micra will be built all over the world, with sales set to begin in Thailand this month, and Europe this fall.
