Previous generations of the vehicle have been sold within one hundred sixty countries, whereas the 2015 Nissan Micra has been designed specifically for the Canadian automotive market. The 2015 Micra is not the vehicle for those that need help backing up or parking. Nor is it the vehicle for those that need to update their Facebook statues at every traffic light and/or stop sign. Mirca is the vehicle for people that remember the importance of driving and focusing on the road. Additionally, the reduced body weight and its ability to increase the vehicle’s fuel economy will be welcomed with open arms by Canadian consumers.
2015 Nissan Micra Trim Level
Regardless of the trim level the 2015 Nissan Micra will host a four cylinder 1.6 liter engine with a maximum output of 109 horsepower with 107 pound per feet of torque. The engine will be smartly mated with either an optional automatic transmission or the standard, which is manual.
2015 Nissan Micra Interior and Exterior
The base model for the Micra includes the following: ABS, six airbags, stability and traction control as well as a tilting steering wheel. The mirrors of the 2015 Nissan Micra can be heated and the suspension has been altered for the road conditions of winter while the cargo area of the vehicle is said to have passed Nissan’s “hockey stick challenge”. Heater ducts for rear passenger comfort have also been added to this generation of the Micra for Canadian consumers.
The new Micra receives a bit of flair by way of its styling that it immensely European. The $199 City Package is able to add sports stripes and mirror cores that are colored while the $499 Intensity Package offers both of the previously mentioned features along with a Rear Hatch Finisher and door handles that are finely colored. Should you desire to complete the look with 15 inch alloy wheels and a rear roof spoiler, add $200 for the wheels and $399 for the spoiler.
The windows remain manual as do the side mirrors, which allows consumers the ability to purchase a brand new vehicle for the cost of a gently used one; or as dealers like to refer to them, certified pre-owned vehicles. There is a Cnvenience Package that is priced at $500 that is available singularly on the basic trim level and will add a USB port, rear view camera, and 4.3 color screen to the latest version of the Nissan Micra.
The 2015 Nissan Micra has been labeled as a car’s car although priced comfortably at $9,998, making it the lowest priced vehicle within Canada. Since the vehicle is not a computer on wheels but an actual vehicle that allows drivers to focus on….DRIVING, the low pricing makes perfect sense. Should you desire the automatic four-speed gearbox, an additional $3,300 will need to be added to the base price of the vehicle. Due note, that model will also include cruise control and air conditioning.
