Old Nissan Micra to get a yearly update in India.

While international markets are welcoming the fifth generation Nissan Micra, India will continue with the old model after a minor update. Nissan has announced that it will unveil the 2017 Nissan Micra in the country on 2 June 2017.

The MY2017 update does not bring design changes to the car and will be about new features, equipment revisions and perhaps a price cut, as with the MY2017 Sunny. The fourth-gen model was given a strong facelift back in 2013. The changes planned for the yearly update are gathered from Nissan’s recent tweets and other social media posts.

Nissan is talking about the 2017 Nissan Micra’s intelligent (read: technology) features on the social media with posts having “MadeIntelligent” hashtag which hints at a new smartphone app that can give service alerts and GPS tracking. Another post says that the new model can sense rain, suggesting that the MY2017 update has rain sensing wipers, just in time for the monsoon.
