Nissan Micra in India with latest safety features and specifications

Nissan Motors is launching Nissan Micra in India powered with latest safety features and specifications. June 2010 would see Nissan entering into the Indian mini car segment which is currently dominated by Maruti Suzuki and Hyundai with its latest sensation Nissan Micra (March month in Japanese).

Nissan Micra would be available in both petrol (1200 and 1300 CC variants) and diesel (1600 CC) models.

Although the exact price of Micra is not announced it is expected to be priced for mid segment.

Nissan Motors plans to have four production units namely Thailand, India, Mexico and China for Micra’s production. Nissan India has implemented its plans of shifting the manufacturing of Micra from UK to Chennai (India).

Nissan plans to produce Micra variants for almost 160 countries and intends to use its V-platform for this purpose. Nissan plans to offer a different engine for the Micra depending on the market it is being exported. Nissan’s Micra is designed and tested in Japan to be built in the four overseas locations.

Europe’s Nissan Micra would have two options a 1.2 L 3 cylinder gasoline engine and a super charged 1.2 L direct injection engine with a start stop system.

Specifications of a 1400 CC Nissan Micra are as under:

if nissan has to suceed in the indian market they will have to increase their reach in to every nook and corner of the country with their service stations , further their pricing has to be competitive ,and little more on ad they have to spend.

i am interestd in going in for a car and i had finalised a model of maruti. In the meantime i came across the item in the news paper about micra, supposedly to be priced around Rs2.5- 3 lakhs. Can you provide more info on the price and comparable features to enable me to either wait for your car or to go ahead with my original decision

Nissan Micra
Dont't go for any Nissan vehicle. Very poor service / repair facilities and practically no proper reply from anyone from the company to answer. This is my practical experience.
