The production of the 2017 Nissan Micra has commenced in Europe this week. After seven years the production of the B-Segment hatchback has moved from India's Chennai plant to Europe.
The 2017 Micra is manufactured in Flins, France at Nissan's partner Renault's production facility. The fifth generation Micra is the first Nissan car to be manufactured at Renault's plant.
It was expected that the 2017 Micra will be based on the Renault-Nissan Alliance's CMF-B platform but the Japanese car maker decided to use the modified version of the V-platform which is being used since 2010.
The front end of the new Micra sports swept back headlamps and Nissan's V-Motion grille. The front bumper design is edgy adding to the pointy look of the car.
The interior of the 2017 Micra features 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay. The rear of the car gets boomerang-shaped tail lamps and the rear bumper gets a funky design.
The new Micra is offered in three engine options, a 1-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine, a 0.9-litre turbocharged petrol engine and a 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine. The transmission duties will be carried out by a 5-speed manual gearbox.
