Nissan began selling the new Micra in Thailand, as the Nissan March, in March 2010, followed by India, which supplies the latest generation of the 30-year old nameplate to markets throughout the world including the European Union. The Micra is fully localized at the Renault-Nissan alliance plant in Oragadam, Chennai.

Changes on the Micra specific to the Indian market include uniquely calibrated suspension and ECU settings, a wider horn button and a diesel engine.

Nissan added adjustable headrests to the rear seat in a later revision, which also saw the introduction of the "Pure Drive" badges.

The dashboard of the pre-facelift model took the "twin bubble" and "connected cocoon design" routes which was a very girly approach.

Moving on, here are the changes to the facelift, as described on the Nissan Thailand website -

  • New headlamps featuring a black and chrome two-tone design with eye-lined chrome accent.
  • New front grille with a V-Shaped chrome feature placed on a beehive grille pattern.
  • Redesigned front bumper with a wider airdam and peeled-back foglights.
  • Revised rear bumper with LED-infused tail lights.

  • Newly designed Automatic air-conditioner interface with square central vents replacing the circular units.
  • New piano black audio system capable of reading music off a CD, AUX port or USB port.
  • New trunk-illuminating lamp.

Nissan has not tinkered with the performance, the 1.2L HRD12E engine bears on, paired to a CVT. The Indian model should take the same route.

So what do you think about the Nissan Micra's transformation?
