Nissan Micra 2021 1280 04

Nissan has given its Micra hatchback an update, see what’s changed below!

The new Nissan Micra was launched locally in 2018 and the Japanese firm has now updated its city car. 

The current Micra trim grades include the Visia, Acenta and Tekna but now Nissan is adding 2 new grades called N-Design and N-Sport.

Customers can also customise their Micra with 2 colour finishers (front and rear) or opt for LED headlights. Tekna and N-Design derivatives gain new 16-inch, two-tone “Genki” alloy wheels.

The Micra N-Design’s interior features black cloth seats with grey accents with leather-look finishers for the front panel, kneepads and inner doors. Buyers looking for a more vibrant interior can opt for an Energy Orange interior and a range of matching accessories to customise the look even further. 

As for the Micra N-Sport, it rides on 17-inch Persa alloy wheels and features gloss black front, side and rear finishers with black mirror caps. LED headlights and LED foglights are also standard. Inside, the seats feature Alcantara inserts as does the dashboard. 

"With the refreshed line-up for 2021, we have refined what we know people love about Micra. We've made it easier for customers to match themselves to the ideal grade and to then add their own unique flair through customisation options on top," said Ekaterina Apushkina, General Manager Marketing City Cars, Nissan Europe.

Engine Choice

The Micra’s engine lineup is expected to remain unchanged with a 66 kW / 140 Nm 0.9-litre turbopetrol engine as well as a more powerful 84 kW / 180 Nm 1.0-litre turbopetrol engine. A 5-speed manual transmission is standard across the range. 

The arrival of the facelifted Micra in South Africa has yet to be confirmed by Nissan South Africa and also note that the above specification might differ depending on the market. We will keep you updated.
