Nissan upgrades its popular Micra car

November 16, 2020

Nissan is hitting the refresh button on its iconic Micra, marking the next step in the evolution of the successful city car that first debuted in Europe 38 years ago.

The updated 2021 Micra keeps the current grade line up of Visia, Acenta, N-Sport and Tekna but has improved the options available to them.

Starting as a special version, N-Sport has become a popular and central part of the permanent Micra grade line-up. The striking N-Sport is designed from the wheels-up to turn heads. On the exterior, the gloss black front, rear and side finishers and black mirror caps perfectly complement the 17-inch black alloy wheels. Fog lamps and headlamps come in full LED as standard.

The N-Sport’s refined aesthetic is carried through to the interior, putting driver and passenger comfort at the very heart of the design. The seats are made with Alcantara inserts and the matching dashboard gives a high-quality finish. The seats are ergonomically designed to provide superior support and reduce driver fatigue for those longer journeys.

The Tekna is packed with in-car entertainment technology and advanced driving features which showcase Nissan Intelligent Mobility – Nissan’s vision for a more exciting and connected future through technological innovation.

Nissan’s popular Intelligent Around View Monitor camera system, helping drivers negotiate difficult parking scenarios safely and easily, is available with moving object detection and Blind Spot Warning – exclusive to the Tekna grade, it comes installed as standard.

For audiophiles, the Tekna also comes with Bose Personal audio, offering immersive, high-quality sound for all passengers and the Ultra Nearfield speakers built into the driver’s headrest offering the ultimate sound experience for the driver.

The NissanConnect infotainment system with TomTom navigation is available as an option on Acenta and N-Sport and is standard on Tekna.

Apple CarPlay with Siri voice recognition and Android Auto with Google Assistant are available as standard from Acenta with a host of additional in-car entertainment features.

Micra’s enhanced 1.0-litre turbocharged engine offers both a dynamic and efficient driving experience. The unit is compliant with the Euro 6d emissions standards, yielding improved fuel-efficiency and reduced emissions. The improved torque delivery curve offers greater driving performance with fewer gear changes, perfect for navigating cities and enabling a smoother, responsive and more enjoyable drive.

From Visia grade upwards, Micra is equipped with essential safety technologies, including Hill Start Assist, Intelligent Ride Control and Intelligent Trace Control for improved handling in difficult conditions.

Further advanced technologies are offered as standard in the Safety Pack. This includes High Beam Assist, Intelligent Lane Intervention, Traffic Sign Recognition and Intelligent Forward Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Recognition.

The model is the first Nissan vehicle to be built in a Renault plant highlighting the synergies across the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance.

The 2021 Micra goes on sale in November 2020, starting from £13,995.
