Ranbir Kapoor's success inspires Nissan to spin-off a special edition Micra
Sagar Parikh, I'm the international news editor at IndianAutosBlog.com. I love everything that has a steering wheel!
With all eyes on Ranbir after his charming on screen performance, it was only natural to see Nissan India place their product next to him to get some share of this limelight.
To this effect, the Nissan Micra Primo Edition has been launched with a host of new features. These include -
- Body decals
- 2 DIN stereo with USB port
- LED lights on the side mirrors
- Rear parking sensors
The Nissan Micra Primo Edition comes only in pearl white body color, but both petrol and diesel options can be availed.
In case you don't recollect, the Micra petrol is launched with a 1.2-liter, 3cyl 80 bhp petrol engine, while the diesel variants use the amazing 1.5-liter K9K tuned to produce 65 bhp power. Nissan exports the locally manufactured Micra around the globe.
Nissan India have to think about repositioning the Micra into a lower price segment to nurture their volumes. We may see something along these lines possibly when the re-faced Micra hits the market in late 2013.
