The 2017 Nissan Micra has been spotted testing again ahead of its Paris Motor Show debut. Though the car hasn’t tasted much success in India, it continues to be in vogue markets such as Europe and South America. Based on Renault-Nissan Alliance’s new CMF-B platform, the latest iteration of the Japanese carmaker’s hatchback will come sporting progressive design upgrades along with a variety of new features when it arrives in international markets next year.
Though the model spotted in the pictures is dressed in heavy camouflage, some essential features are quite evident. The new Nissan Micra receives sports a proportioned profile, sharp-looking front, and a rear influenced by the Juke compact SUV. The upcoming hatchback will also be longer and wider as compared to its predecessor. The new dimensions, in turn, mean increased interior space, both in the cabin and the boot. Additionally, much like the exterior design, the cabin is also expected to largely retain the Sway concept’s configuration.
Not much is known about the engine range, though the Micra is is expected to come powered by a 0.9-litre turbocharged petrol unit in Europe along with a myriad of other engine options. Choice for transmission will include a manual and automatic gearbox.
While the car is due for an update here too, the India-bound model will not be based on the new CMF-B platform. Instead, in India, the new Nissan Micra will be based on the same V-Platform as the current gen model.
