Official: Made-in-India 2013 Nissan Micra fully revealed
Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.
We’ve been covering the Nissan Micra facelift rather extensively from the beginning of this year. After seeing the refreshed Nissan Micra/March which went on sale in Thailand recently, we finally get to see how the Indian and the European version looks like.
It started with a spyshot revealing a different front fascia from what was seen in the Thai models. We were sure that Nissan was up to something, maybe India specific. But it looks like Europe and most of Nissan India’s export markets are also getting this version.
Before we go any further, we’ll show you our artist Shoeb’s rendering of the refreshed Micra which was made way back in November of last year!
Nissan say that the improvements to the front and rear also involve a lot of sheet metal changes. The bonnet, headlights, bumpers, taillights, grill and the fog lamp enclosure are brand new. The front grill of the Micra brings ‘Nissan’s new corporate look’. You also get LED taillights. We’ve to say though, it looks a bit like the Renault Pulse from the rear.
Coming to the wheels. The Micra facelift gets new 15-inch alloy wheels while an option for machine finished 16-inch alloy wheels have also been added. The Micra on sale in India only features alloy wheels in the top-end diesel model.
Two new colors have been included – Pacific Blue and metallic Platinum Sage. The number of exterior colors now stands at 10.
The top-end model also features a panoramic glass roof.
