Autoincar is reporting the Nissan Micra sedan (Nissan L02B Sport Sub-compact Sedan) will come with a 1.2-liter petrol engine apart from the 1.5-liter diesel engine in Thailand.
The 1.2-liter 3-cylinder engine will also be used on the Micra hatchback. By August this year, Nissan will introduce the car in India. The same powertrain could be used on the 2012 Renault Clio in the future.
The Nissan Micra sedan competes with the likes of the Honda City, Hyundai Verna in Thailand. It will be introduced in India and go head to head with cars like the Indigo Manza, Swift Dzire and Toyota Etios sedan.
It is premature to speculate on the Nissan Micra sedan's powertrain options, a 1.2-liter engine with different state of tune could serve in the entry-level model.
