PARIS, FRANCE (Nov. 16, 2020) Nissan hits refresh on its iconic Micra, marking the next step in the evolution of the successful city car that first debuted in Europe 38 years ago.
The updated 2021 Micra enhances the customer offering, whilst maintaining the current grade line up of Visia, Acenta, N-Sport and Tekna. This will enable customers to maintain a clear understanding of the Micra line up whilst improving the options available to them.
As we have worked to improve the Micra line up overall, we have particularly focussed on enhancing our premium derivatives. LED headlamps are now standard on both N-Sport and Tekna grades and we are pleased to be able to offer 17-inch diamond cut alloys as standard on Tekna, alongside the Intelligent Around View Monitor. Giving Micra a more elegant and athletic appearance, whilst maintaining its technologically advanced reputation.
With the refreshed line-up for 2021, we have refined what we know people love about Micra. We’ve made it easier for customers to find the ideal grade for them and ensured the new engine keeps our drivers up to date with the latest requirements. By building on its success, and listening to our customers, we’ve arrived at a place where Micra is stronger than ever.
N-Sport: for a premium and sporty look
Starting as a special version, N-Sport has become a popular and central part of the permanent Micra grade line-up. The striking N-Sport is designed from the wheels-up to turn heads. On the exterior, the gloss black front, rear and side finishers and black mirror caps perfectly complement the 17-inch black perso alloy wheels. On the N-Sport, fog lamps and headlamps come in full LED as standard.
The N-Sport’s refined aesthetic is carried through to the interior, putting the driver and passenger comfort at the very heart of the design. The seats are made with Alcantara® inserts and the matching dashboard gives a high-quality finish. The seats are ergonomically designed to provide superior support and reduce driver fatigue for those longer journeys.
