The fifth generation 2017 Nissan Micra will be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show later this year.
The Renault – Nissan alliance has been going strong globally and the most popular model of the alliance, the Nissan Micra is all set to undergo a revamp making it the fifth generation of the model. The new gen model is expected to go into production later this year.
Influenced by the Nissan Sway Concept, the Nissan Micra will be the first model that will be manufactured under the Renault – Nissan alliance’s Common Modular Family (CMF) platform. The model has been spotted testing in various global locations and the first look of the new gen Micra appears to have grown significantly in proportions. With lower ground clearance, roof spoiler and sharp headlights the new gen Micra looks sportier than the bubbly current version.
This revamped model is set to hit the streets of Europe, US and other developed countries in the early half of 2017. Introduction of this model in the Asian, Middle East and Indian markets is not the alliance’s agenda as yet. We at AutoEsperto believe that since the Micra has been doing fairly well in the Indian markets discontinuing the current version will be a far-fetched option for the alliance. However, we do expect the revamped model to be launched under a different name and tweaked to the Indian requirements in the latter half of 2018.
The new gen Nissan Micra is slotted to be revealed to the world during the Paris Motor Show later this year. Sources suggest that the new gen will boast a plethora of petrol and diesel engine options ranging from 900 to 1600cc.
