After the last Micra was undoubtedly a failure, Nissan is ready to erase this from the memory of its fans. So it introduced the fifth generation Micra during this year Paris Motor Show, trying to benefit from the worlds largest car segment: the small one. 

Remaining faithful to the Sway Concept unveiled at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the Micra Gen5 fully embodies Nissan’s latest design language: the distinctive V-motion grille, boomerang-shaped lights, and the floating roof. Other features include rear door handles hidden in the C-pillars and an extended roofline that incorporates a spoiler.

The looks are matched by a selection of 10 exterior colours, including Energy Orange. Additional exterior and interior personalisation options allow for the creation of 125 different variations.

This Micra Gen5 is the first in Nissan’s B-segment line-up to offer such an extensive set of advanced safety features, available across all grades, bringing Nissan Intelligent Driving to life. 

Usually found in larger cars, available technologies include Lane Departure Prevention, a segment first. Intelligent Emergency Braking with pedestrian recognition, a first for Nissan vehicles in Europe, as well as Intelligent Around View Monitor, Traffic Sign Recognition, High Beam Assist and Blind Spot Warning. Together, these advanced safety features are the building blocks for Autonomous Driving and are an integral part of Nissan Intelligent Mobility.

An exclusive feature of Micra Gen5 is the all-new six-speaker Bose Personal sound system, developed through close collaboration with Nissan.

Micra Generation 5 comes with a 7-inch full colour central display, providing access to the audio system, satellite navigation, mobile phone, downloadable apps and Siri voice control via Apple CarPlay.

Speaking of sounds, much attention has been paid to reducing noise in the cabin. Improvements include outstanding noise insulation and optimisation of the car’s aerodynamic performance. Exceptional aero efficiency has been achieved thanks to the combined roof and side spoiler. As a result, the new Micra has achieved a Cd of 0.29 – top level for a hatchback.

The new Nissan Micra will be built in Europe at the Renault plant in Flins, France, as part of the Renault Nissan Alliance. Sales will start in Europe from March 2017.
